Here is another thought regarding your Amorphophallus konjac. At one
time, the name " Amorphophallus konjac" was being used as a synonym
for A. paeoniifolius (a.k.a. A. campanulatus) here in South Florida.
I have seen a couple of these plants, and they do turn out to be A.
paeoniifolius, which grows quite well here. One of the identifying
traits of the A. paeoniifolius is the extremely rough petiole (the
stalk of the plant). Check it out.
