Amorphophallus konjac Amorphophallus konjac
Code: 90562
Price: $8.95

Quantity in Basket: none

(Syn.: Amorphophallus rivieri), Konjac Voodoo Lily, Konnyaku Potato, Devil's Tongue

NEW! - This unusual exotic plant is in the same family as the Giant Corpse Flower (A. titanum), which often is a newsmaker when in bloom. This easy to grow plant is a much smaller cousin with a 5 foot flower stalk that has an amazing dark, liver-purple spadix surrounded by a lighter purple spathe. It emits an interesting provocative scent mimicking a dead animal to lure in flies for pollination. The single huge snowflake-like leaf emerges from the corm after blooming growing up to 4 feet high on a green and purple mottled, fleshy stalk. In cold climates lift the huge corm in the fall to store. The large corm is commonly used in Asian cuisine and for herbal remedies. It's a widespread species from the eastern Himalayas to China and the Philippines. Image from Curtis's Botanical Magazine 1875. Araceae

Sold in 3" pots.

Pearl Anthurium

NEW! - This cute aroid is widespread in its forest habitat from southern Mexico and the West Indies to southern Brazil and found from sea level to almost 9,000 feet in elevation. It's a creeping epiphyte with up to 2 inch dark green leaves and, at a young age, a profusion of waxy, white or faintly violet fruit (berries) that look like little pearls. It has small brown sheaths that cover the stems giving them a woody look and aerial roots along the stems that penetrate cracks in the bark of trees to help anchor and climb. As a container plant, it remains small and compact. Tolerates full sun, but is best in part shade. Perfect for growing in a terrarium. USDA zones 10 - 12. Araceae

Pheasant's Tail, Birdsnest Anthurium

Anthurium schlechtendalii is our best guess. Although, it could be a form of Anthurium hookerii. This is a large dramatic bird's nest anthurium. In the wild it's an epiphyte. Its vase shape is composed of bright green leaves more than six feet long and two feet wide. The inconspicuous inflorescence, which has a ripe banana-like fragrance, produces showy red fruit. Use as a tropical landscape accent in a wind protected garden or as a tubbed specimen. Protect from snails. Has survived in Southern California in USDA zone 9 with minimal frost protection. Native Mexico south to Nicaragua. Araceae

(Syn.: Rhaphidophora celatocaulis, Pothos celatocaulis), Shingle Plant

Rare tropical climber with juvenile blue-green leaves held tightly together, overlapping like shingles. For many years, Rhaphidophora celatocaulis and Rhaphidophora korthalsii were thought to be two separate species, until the adult form with long-stalked, deeply cut adult leaves emerged. The juvenile leaves grow about 5 inches wide. Give large vertical space in shady area, where it can cling to the surface. Native to Borneo. USDA zones 10 - 12. Araceae

(Syn.: Xanthosoma atrovirens 'Variegatum Monstrosum'), Mickey Mouse Plant, Mouse Cup, Pocket Plant

Bluish-green arrowhead-shaped leaves with wide, irregular areas splashed with gray-green, cream and white. Very unique as the tips of the leaves are fused into a cup sporting a long tail. The flowers sport a yellow white spadix during the summer. It's easy to grow in a bright shady position with rich moist soil. Average size from 2 to 3 feet. However, outdoors in a tropical environment, it can grow 4 to 5 feet high. Remains evergreen unless chilled. It's best to overwinter indoors in colder climates. Grow outdoors in USDA zones 9 - 11. Native of the tropical Americas. Araceae

Hercules Calla Lily

A rare giant of the callas to 5 feet high with huge white flowers. We purchased this plant from Western Hills Nursery in Northern California 25 years ago. This form does not have spotted leaves. Western Hills also seems to have offered another form of 'Hercules' with spots on the leaves, which is the clone that the San Francisco Botanical Garden grows as 'Hercules'. We are now selling both of these clones.

Note: As these are young plants, it will probably take a couple of seasons to reach flowering size. It seems that climate has a lot to do with the eventual size of calla lilies. Those grown in the San Francisco Bay area usually grow much larger than the same variety grown in Southern California. Araceae
