Amorphophallus haematospadix

The images below of the inflorescence were taken from a gift obtained many years ago.  I was sloppy and lost the plant.  I've since purchased a new one and that is the source of the bottom two photos.

True to predicted form, the inflorescence had a faint pleasant odor.

The following info has been extracted from Aroideana, Volume 19, a publication of the International Aroid Society.  You'll note that this is just a small portion of the extensive descriptive information available in the Aroideana 19:

Tuber up to 12 cm diameter and up to 9 cm high
Leaf petiole uniformly green or olive green, smooth 50-85 cm long, 1-3 cm diameter
Leaf lamina 60-80 cm. in diameter - leaflets lanciolate
Spathe 8-21 cm long, 4-7 cm in diam
limb on both sides creamy white, base outside creamy white, to the base suffused with pale purplish green, inside dark purple, base within with thickened transverse veins, in between with or without small punctiform warts
Spadix longer than spathe, occasionally shorter, 9-19 cm long
Dormancy Not listed in Volume 19 so I keep it in soil
