Description

Amorphophallus gigas is a rare and hard to find species native to the hot and humid jungles of Sumatra. Amorphophallus gigas grows big and large and is often compared to Amorphophallus titanum for rarity and it’s huge unusual inflorescence.? I usually only have these available in limited stock for limited times. So they come and go sometime for years. Amorphophallus gigas grows a large umbrella leaf that is segmented and can reach 8 feet across. The petiole can grow to over 8 to 10 feet tall. The flowers which are dark maroon with a large spadix shooting out the top are just a pure botanical oddity. The petioles are also very attractive and can have very different patterns usually colors of lime green, dark green, gray, white, black and everything in-between.
