Dear friends,

I went in East Africa last december and january. In Malawi,at Citimba,I crossed
large population of an Amorphophallus sp widely occured along roadside ,in
cassava field,also under shade in cemetery and surprise :in the sand of Malawi
lake beach, in full sun!A really weedy species like also a Tacca sp.

Most of plants were in fruits.I did not seen any flower.Stems were variously
coloured : green,striped with dark,dark or spotted and without hair.
About 4 feets plant.

I harvested lot of seeds which were sown in early march.Now,most of my seedling
becoming dormant.
