African Titan Aroids and the closely related genus Pseudohydrosme are native of Africa and contain some 7 to 8 species in Anchomanes, respectively only one species (Pseudohydrosme gabunensis) in the monotypic genus Pseudohydrosme. They differ from Amorphophallus in having always spiny stalks and deeply dissected leaves, and tuberous, spreading rhizomes with perennial roots. All can be successfully grown in any rich, well drained, slightly moist soil in a partially shaded to sunny spot. Keep plants always warm at a minimum of some 20°C throughout the year, decrease watering as soon as plants go dormant. The inflorescence appears with or shortly before the new leaf is formed.
Plants are easily raised from seeds, sow the usually quite large seeds horizontally in any rich, well drained soil. Keep soil always slightly moist. Keep at 20° - 30°C throughout the year in a sunny to partially shaded spot. Seedlings will usually grow continuously for about two years before going dormant for the first time.
