Dracontium or South American Titan Arum is a small genus with some 25 species from Central America to South America. They usually make one deeply dissected, umbrella-like leaf on a on a medium sized to tall stalk and a flattend tuber with several tubercles on top. The spatha is maroon-brown in most species. Easily grown in any rich, well drained substrate in a partially shaded (summer) to sunny (winter) spot. Keep plants always warm at a minimum of some 20°C throughout the year, decrease watering as soon as plants go dormant.
Plant tubercles horizontally and flat in any humus rich, well drained soil. Keep soil always slightly moist and pots at some 20° to 30°C in a sunny to partially shaded spot. Tubercles will usually need one entire year in most Dracontium species before the first leaf appears. Thus be patient.
