Amorphophallus is a large genus of some 200 tropical and subtropical tuberous herbaceous plants from the Arum family. It is a perennial tropical Aroid native to India and the Himalayas.
This plant is one of the prettiest among its kind and the inflorescence has a less strong smell than the other amorphophallus. It can grow up to 4 feet tall and produces a single inflorescence followed by a solitary leaf. In spring a mature tuber will first produce the unusual pink and white flower with green lines, its pink spathe is very attractive and extremely exotic.
The flower lasts only about 5 days and the bad smell that accompanies the flower only lasts for a couple of hours. The flowers are monoecious individual flowers are either male or female, but both sexes can be found on the same plant.
