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

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.

Swiss Cheese Plant

New! With its unusual leaf structure this is a very popular climbing houseplant. The leaves are about 6 inches long showing off multiple holes, called fenestrations. Fast growing, it makes an impressive hanging basket or allow it to grow up a totem to display its unique leaves. Give it a rich, fast draining soil mix, humidity, and indirect light. In the tropics it can be allowed to grow up in the shade of a tree for an exotic jungle look. Often incorrectly sold as Monstera obliqua, which is another extremely rare Monstera and almost never sold. The juvenile growth stage was once thought to be a different species and was given the now invalid name of Monstera friedrichsthalii. Native to the Amazonian region of Peru, Ecuador and Brazil. USDA zones 10 - 12. Araceae

New! The small slightly velvety and glossy leaves on this rare philodendron start out heart shaped on a young plant, then produce leaves with upper lobes as the plant gets older, until at plant maturity the new leaves are deeply trilobed. These deep green leaves, reaching 8 to 12 inches in length, can take on a reddish brown color in brighter light. Give it a rich free draining potting mix with added perlite for best results. This fast growing vine is best in bright shade, avoiding direct sunlight. It is primarily a ground dweller in its native forest habitat in western Brazil and Bolivia. Outdoors in tropical climates allow it to climb or indoors grow it as a house plant with a totem.

Rare tropical climber with juvenile blue-green leaves held tightly together, overlapping like shingles.

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

We offer two clones of Hercules, a plain green leaf form and a spotted leaf form. This is the form that the San Francisco Botanical Garden grows as 'Hercules' with white spotted leaves.

Goes somewhat dormant in summer, with active growth the rest of the year. Native to South Africa. USDA zones 7b - 10.
