90 (130)cm, a medium sized, very rarely available species from Western and Central Africa with an extremely unusual, hooded pale maroon and yellowish dotted spathe with a whitish base embedding a dark maroon spadix inside and showy, narrow linear-leanceolate leaflests. For any rich, very well drained soil in full sun. In winter keep dormant corms completely dry at a minimum of some 15°C. This species is said to be rather difficult in cultivation. We are proud to introduce a new clone from Amorphophallus dracontoides found in Gambia into the horticultural trade, which has been proven reliably growing and easy going. An unique offer of new genetic material, worldwide only available from us! VI-VII.
