We were fortunate to see Amorphophallus brevispathus in the wild in Thailand in 2005, growing in tiny cracks in huge rocks...slippery rocks, north of Bangkok. The nice monks (probably redundant) were kind enough to allow us to collect a few samples from which these were propagated. Amorphophallus brevispathus forms an 18" tall green petiole, topped with a plain green leaf...what else would you expect from monks? The strange part is the flower...brevispathus (short spathe). Imagine a well-endowed man with really short shorts that fail to hide his manhood, and you get the idea. The long white spadix is very visible when it's flowering time.
