  unknown Amorphophallus from Thailand
From: StroWi at t-online.de (StroWi at t-online.de) on 2008.04.29 at 00:29:59(17491)

a fellow aroider from Zurich got an Amorphophallus from Thailand last
spring and the little one is flowering already; see:


Note that the inflorescence is only 7,5 cm, approx 3 inch long,

Happy identifying,

That would be Am. longituberosus.

This is rather Amchomanes. But does Anchomanes grow wild in ThaianD? Is the
leaf spiny?

It's not an Anchomanes. It's clearly an Amorphophallus. I flowered
one this year as well and, while it looks superficially like
longituberosus, it's the smallest one I've ever seen. The corms are
about 7cm or so long and they've been that way for at least two years.
Unfortunately, mine flowered while I was away and the only pictures I
got of the naughty bits are way too fuzzy.

Sorry, I meant not leaves but petioles to be spiny

Sicher longituberosus.
