the amorphophallus.

I only know two articles regarding the vitro propagation of Amorphophallus

Irawati, Arditti, J. and Nyman, L.P., 1986. In vitro propagation of the
elephant Yam, Amorphophallus campanulatus var. hortensis Backer (Araceae)
Annals of Botany 57: 11-17

Kohlenbach, Hans, Willy, and Becht Christine. 1988. In vitro propagation of
Amorphophallus titanum Cecc. and Amorphophallus rivieri Durieu. Acta
Horticulturae 226 Propagation of ornamentals 65-72.

I hope that this will help.

With best wishes,
Arno Clement

It is being commercially done and that is why you see tiny titanum
plants for sale at reasonable prices. Doubtful that the commercial labs
have published it. I have done lots and will publish at some point but
until then it remains a secret :-)))
