Amorphophallus paeoniifolius seeds should be planted as soon as possible after arrival because they lose viability quickly. The plant goes through cycles of vegetative growth, where a leaf will grow, die back, and grow again. Leaves can be divided into hundreds of leaflets and can grow up to 3 feet wide and 9 feet tall. Once the plant reaches maturity, some of the vegetative cycles will be replaced with flowering cycles. Instead of a large leaf, a single flower will emerge. Amorphophallus paeoniifolius have one of the largest flowers in the world, measuring up to 2 feet wide and 3 feet tall. The flowers of this plant mimic the odor of rotten flesh in order to attract flies for pollination. Each individual flower is either male or female, both sexes of flowers can be produced by one plant. They do best in well draining soil. A. paeoniifolius require frequent watering when they are actively growing, but prefer to be drier during dormancy. USDA hardiness zone 11-12.

Plant the seeds 1/4 inch deep in a well draining soil, keep them moist but bot soaking, around 75°F. Germination typically takes 1-8 weeks.
