Growing foliage spikes available at plant shows price dependent on size.
Unusual member of the Arum or Aroid family closely related to the famous Titan Arum that produces smelly flowers in early spring when mature. The corm should be planted a couple of inches deep in well-drained soil or potting compost. A foliage spike with an attractive mottled stem like a giraffes neck will emerge and gather energy for the corm until autumn when it may be lifted and stored or protected under a deep mulch. The flower spike (right) appears in spring so keep an eye on stored corms..
Dormant Corms available from November to April in various sizes from 10 to 70 grams at £1 per 5 grams.
