I wouldn't hold my breath here: Amorphophallus bulbifer is
a triploid (3n = 39) and could never ever produce fertile offspring of
interspecific hybrid origin. It always sets purely apomictic seeds (without any
pollination) and produces "offspring" identical to the mother plant.

I am sorry, but I am not buying a ticket to see 100
bulbifer clones..........
