Amorphophallus konjac K. Koch


Origin of the plants in the photos: W. Hetterscheid's collection, ID#H.AM.248, H.AM.249, H.AM 304, and H.AM.348

All these are reasonably "standard issues" of A.konjac, with slight variations. The H.AM. 348 has very small spots on the stem, and H.AM.304 has very small leaves.

Side view of the same plant.
Here, it is shown (on the right) in comparison with its "Black Stem" variant (on the left). The latter is a 2-year old and slighlty larger. The compound leaf is much denser than the normal A. konjac
Comparison of petiole patterns. The one on the left is from H.AM.348.

I waited too long with describing these photos, and both plants shown to the right have gone dormant before I had a chance to identify which was which.

A comparison of the growth habits of two specimens. The one on the left (H.AM. 304) has exceptionally small leaflets; the one on the right is more normal,
