Product info

Amorphophallus brachyphyllus grows from an underground tuber. A single leaf emerges from that tuber, which is strangely, very similar to many different leaves. The Arum-like will first make leaves a number of times until the plant has saved up enough nutrients, before flowering spectacularly. Amorphophallus brachyphyllus, like many other related species, has a distinctive odor. In this case the flower smells rather pleasantly of fried fish. The plant grows to approximately 90 cm in size and therefore fits in a somewhat smaller space. Eye-catching orange-red berries appear after flowering.

Plant care

Amorphophallus brachyphyllus occurs naturally in the tropics and therefore needs high temperatures and humidity. Make sure they are around 25°C and 80% humidity for optimum growth. Place it in partial shade. The plant enters a resting phase when the flower or leaf wilt. The temperature can then be reduced to 20°C. The soil must be kept moist during flowering, but not too soggy. This causes the tuber to rot. Allow the upper layer of the soil to dry slightly before watering again. In the rest period it is sufficient to give a splash of water once a month. It is best to use bark for good drainage, so that Amorphophallus brachyphyllus can extract its nutrients from this as well. In the wild the plant grows on a lime-rich soil. To promote growth, it is best to provide plant food containing lime during the flowering period.
