Amorphophallus paeoniifolius 'Thailand Giant' is the latest "Land of the Giants" aroid introduction from plantsman Alan Galloway. Alan discovered this giant population of Amorphophallus paeoniifolius in Phang Nga, Thailand, in 2011. The plants there were a massive 9' tall with a 9' wing span...each more than 1/3 taller than a typical NBA center. Each resulting seed-grown plant will be different, but we anticipate the giant size should result in equally large offspring. The offspring vary in petiole color from solid green to dark brown with blotches. When the tuber gets large enough to flower, you'll be amazed at the bizarre, blush pink, wrinkly dome that, with hair, could be mistaken for Keith Richards' face...get your own satisfaction by growing one today. In winter, container-grown plants should be removed from the pot and the tuber stored dry and above freezing.
