deep & the stem is pushing out right now it’s moved
an inch or more in the 18 hours since the mail man dropped it off yesterday
.about 5” high right now .my question is what size pot should this go
into ? & am I looking at a deep pot also ? any suggestions on a soil mix
would be great . thanx mike mahan

Having
just returned from Madagascar, I'm intrigued to hear about this new

where?

There are several species of Amorphophallus in Madagasacar, all endemic and
all but one (A. hildebrandtii) relatively recently described: A. ankarana
Hetterscheid et al. (1999), A. antsingyensis Bogner et al. (1999), A.
taurostigma Ittenbach e al (1999) & A. manglesdorfii Bogner (2003)

It was
found by a Dutch (!!) guy near Mahajanga. It is pictured on the website of Out
of Africa.

Cheerio,
