Dear Wayne and Ken,

I am not an grower of these 'stinkys', but a few comments. That a species
forms its new tuber right at the bottom of the pot seems to say that this
species LIKES to be potted/grow deep, there are special pots (palm seedling
pots) for these. Concerning the size of pots used, THE best
Amorphophallus grower I ever met, Craig Allen ex: of Fairchild Gardens in
Miami, in his wonderful article on his experiences with both growing and
flowering his giant species of Amorphophallus' (published in a past
Aroideana), discovered by chance a formula---under-pot (yes, even A.
titanum!) if you want to obtain tuber/corm divisions/new corms, and over-pot
then fert. like hell to promote tuber size increase and the chance of
Good luck/growing!
