(aka: Amorphophallus symonianus Home #2) This Mary Sizemore discovery from north central Thailand is named for the late amorphophallus enthusiast, Dr. James Symon. In 2006, we saw Amorphophallus symonianus growing in rock crevices around some of the Buddhist temples. It is one of the easier species to grow in containers, forming a 2' tall specimen with an olive-green speckled petiole, topped by a green leaf. The unique feature of Amorphophallus symonianus is that it forms intercalary bulbs in the fall. You'll recognize the blessed event when the leaf swells where it is attached to the petiole like an alien trying to emerge from within. The green spathe is home to an almost human-like, perfectly shaped, white spadix. This clone is vegetatively propagated.
