Dear friends who don't mind smelly flowers, here is one that you can consider growing.

My amorphophallus variabilis flowered and unfortunately i did not get the chance to experience the full smelliness of the flowers. When i discovered it, it has already bloomed with all the flower pollen collected at the base of the spathe.

The inflorescence stood 3 Feet and 7.5 inches tall, the spadix measured 13.5 inches with a 8 inches spathe.

Another species that bloomed earlier. This species is very much smaller, its spadix measured 2 inches tall.
