Brian,
That would be Amorphophallus lewallei.

Wilbert,

Is this the normal size of bloom for lewallei? I received seed of this
from you a few years ago (as I think did a few others reading this) and
remarkably I have managed to keep a few alive until now in my less
than ideal conditions........ I did not realise the flower was such a
dainty thing. Very cute (I know, hopelessly addicted if I can call an
Amorphophallus "cute"! LOL) isn't it!!?? I knew the colouration to expect,
but as is so often the case the picture I saw gave no real reference to size.

So.... is this just a small flower, or is this the size to be
expected? For a flower of this size how big a tuber would be expected?

Thanks for any help.

Cheers.

Paul Tyerman

Hi Paul,

Cute is the word, believe me!!!!!!!!

This seed lot I distributed was obtained by crossing two clones (H.AM.020
and 021). Of these the 020 clone produces very large tubers (up to 20 cm in
diam. !!) and has an appendix with warts that are conical and pointy. 021 is
slightly smaller and has an appendix with rounded warts. In your hybrid
result I recognise mostly characters of 21, so this one would be a trifle
smaller. However, I have had 021-tubers of 15 cm in diam. so I guess your
plant will get quite a lot bigger in years to come. The best way to get the
most (bulk) out fo your plants is to feed them silly with fertilisers (at
least once every two weeks). The East African species are WILD about that.
So it may grow from "cute" to "dangerous" (as in mothers-in-law).

Cheerio,
Wilbert

Wilbert,

I wish that it was "in my hybrid" but the picture alas was not mine!
I was just asking about whether the apparent size was normal for
the species. My 3 surviving bulbs of lewallei that resulted from the seed
you sent are all currently dormant. I have recently placed the pot of one
onto a heat mat to see if that will bring it back into growth (the
difference it has made to Am. kiusianus (or was it yunnanensis) in the week
since it was placed there is amazing!! The growth has accelerated
dramatically to say the least. Hopefully the lewallei will spring back to
life soon as well.

Once back in growth I shall feed them "silly" with fertiliser (a lovely
image of Amorphs there! LOL) but can you suggest what types of fert you
would recommend? While younger do I hit them with high nitrogen, or do I
stick with a more generally balanced fertiliser? To be honest I am still
to actually flower an Amorph as my konjac outside is still being a little
recalcitrant and will not get quite to flowering size (every year it is
around baseball size but never gets larger, yet never flowers). I'm sure
you'll all hear the celebrations when it finally does!!

Thanks very much for the response Wilbert (and the lewallei seed a couple
of years ago). Very helpful!!

Cheers.

Dear All,

This spring I bought this Amo as A. asterostigmatus.
But at the Aroid.org website I saw a different picture.

Now I need your help to identify this.

not really easy to identify Am. by petiole. But my guess is koratensis, which can be brown, green, spotted, smooth, or bumpy.

Hmmm, I never would have guessed koratensis, but it *is* extremely
variable. Of the 50 or so that I've grown I just never had one with that
color petiole.

I got that one (or very similar) in 2000 as A-101. Mine is similar, but not quite yunnanense or albus or dunnii. Winter hardy here in a zone 7 garden.

Marco,

I grew that Amorphophallus atroviridis tuber pictured on the IAS Web site back in 1998 in a pot that was about 35 cm deep to allow for the elongated growth habit of the tuber. When this species is grown in shorter pots, the tubers will look like those that you got off of eBay.

Hi Marco,

The look more like albispathus or saururus but they are well awake, so plant
them and you'll know it in 3 weeks.

Thank you Wilbert and Scott, I will wait to view the foliage and will post a new photo for the identification.

Scott do you have a supplier for pot 35 deep, I have arranged with some plastic tube closed on one side, but if I find a supplier for deep pot is better.

Hello,

The blooming one can be A. variabilis, but I'm not sure.

Where was it growing (country)?

Dear Caw Ming,

Amorphophallus 1 = Am. variabilis

Amorphophallus 2: probably a seedling/young plant of Am. hirsutus (Sumatra)
or Am. pendulus (Sarawak).
