Amorphophallus declinatus is a little-known species, discovered by plant explorer Mary Sizemore in Palawan, Philippines. In form, Amorphophallus declinatus resembles Amorphophallus konjac. The 4' tall rough-feeling stalks are dark, but highlighted with large silvery blotches. The inflorescences are quite spectacular with a large pitcher (spathe) that is mottled grey, while the top of the spathe is a nice purple-red, complementing the long purple spadix. The front of the spathe drapes (i.e., declinatus = declines) around the spadix in a less than effective attempt at modesty.
