In my cultivation smaller specimens of Amorphophallus bulbifer
usually set up a couple of leaves (2 to 5) one eafter each other for
about 5 months before they finally go dormant (if not growing all year
round, which is not uncommon in this species). Adult specimens
show a strict dormancy and produce only one leaf in a single growing
