Product info

Amorphophallus variabilis first forms a long, tall stem on which its inflorescence appears. This takes the form of a protective sheath or spathe and a spadix or spike. The spadix is much longer than other kinds of Amorphophallus, sticking out much higher than the spathe. Once the plant has finished flowering, leaf appears. This species is best positioned in a conservatory, a warm greenhouse or a room in the home.

In order to ensure good drainage, mix a quarter part of builder’s sand or seramis into the potting compost. Place the pot in a warm location where the temperature is at least 21 degrees. In the growing period, ensure the plant has enough water and food, that the temperature is high enough and that the air is not too dry. In autumn, stop watering and store the tuber in a dry, warm and dark place.
