Over the years, we have noticed a dramatic difference in the quantity of leaf bulbils produced by different clones of Amorphophallus bulbifer. We selected the most prolific producer of bulbils and christened it Amorphophallus 'Old Warty' as a 2010 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction. When the tubers are large enough, this aroid produces the prototypical 15" tall, phallic pink flowers near ground level in early to mid-June. The leaves of Amorphophallus bulbifer 'Old Warty', which arise in late June (don't call us in May), are held atop 4' tall stalks laden with intercalary (between the leaf segments) bulbils in August and September. You'll have so many bulbils, you can share them with your friends or pass them out to the trick-or-treaters you don't want to return...just kidding.
