This voodoo lily has a bizarre flower, even for an amorphophallus. The speckled spathe rolls back as it opens, resembling a white banana being peeled. Inside is an amorphous-shaped, white, banana-like spadix (looking as if it were left in the microwave too long). When the flowering event is over, expect a green-and-black speckled stem to rise from the ashes, topped with a giant dissected green leaf. Each bulb will offset small bulblets for propagation purposes.
