Hello All,
Buyers beware! I see that 'King Phallus' has spoken with good words of wisdom, but I`ll take this oppor. to let everyone know that I have a rare plant (Amorphophallus, Taccarum or Dracontium sp.??) collected in N. Antartica or it may have been the N. Pole, I don`t remember which, it grows cold, and when it blooms it shoots red and green sparks up to 20 ft. high (6 m) like a roman candle instead of producing an actual bloom. The leaves (two at a time) which can reach 18 ft. tall, are metalic, and varegated in blue, red and white. As they develop they form patterns that look like erotic antique engravings. As soon as I can steal someone's pics off some other site I will post it. Opening offers please???

This is nothing new, this plant is a new genus in
Araceae, but scientists still argue if it should be in Araceae or its own
family. It was described in 1390 B.C. Unfortunately I don't own this plant, but
I have a drawing from the 19th century, you can steal the picture it from
