Thanks Bev, I have been a bit LAZY with RB hopefully will get back on track with pictures as well.
Well shot, Anna!
Thanks Susie. See u Monday
Hi Anna, I used to grow some of these plants when I had my Carnivorous Plant nursery. I believe they are an Amorphophallus or “Voodo Plant”. How did you cope with the incredible smell of rotting meat which they give off for a couple of days? This attracts flies which do the pollinating. I wish I still had one and am envious of you owning one of these curious plants. All the best Ian
Thank you Ian, as it was outside the smell was not too bad, however I wantede to see the root system, but all I found was a thing like a potato not a corm etc, and a few spidery roots. I did grow another in a pot from the hard seed like thing that develops on the leaf. Will see how it develops. "hmmmm Voodo plant, hope its not bad luck.
Thank you, it is just a magnificent and unexpected flower.
Thank you so much and for visiting my page,
what a strange flower! nice and original ;)
Thank you so much, I have had this plant for about 4 years and this was the first time it had flowered. This year it is just a stalk with leaves on top.
