This "dwarf white voodoo lily" is one of the cold-hardiest in the genus Amorphophallus. Leaves are damaged by frost but buried corms will take quite a few degrees of frost. It is also more resistant than other species to wet cold soils and will grow in areas with cool summers. Nevertheless it grows better if planted in well-draining soils. Mature corms can attain 7 - 10cm. Dormant corms can be stored dry out of the soil at room temperature.
We ship a corm of 4-5 cm diameter, it will bloom in about 1 year. It will be shipped dormant and leafless or in moist sphagnum if growing.
