Anyone does: it is Amorphophallus lewallei.

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.
