hi davidia, the last pic is indeed titanum :)/>

and you are right about the tubers' identification as well!

i think i grow one typhonium and i recently bought a small tuber of a pure white flowering arisaema from thailand.

cheers,
csbear

hi, the titanum i dunno why got multiple growth tips, but im not complaining :P/> the other titanum i had formed multiple tubers, contradiciting the claim that titanums dun reproduce vegetatively :)/> the white arisaema i dun have a picture of, becos i only saw the preserved flower in a bottle from the lady i bought from in Thailand. i will try to id it as soon as possible. btw, its about 3yrs old, grown from seed.

as to what that really is, lets all wait for the leaves and flowers :)/> I was convinced then that it was a arisaema, mainly because of the hooded spathe.

Hi, I decided to add onto this thread instead of creating a new one.

I grew this Amorphophallus titanum and paeoniifolius from seed, as I have never seen the titanum seed before, I am not sure if it will ever be one or ends up a jackfruit tree :lol:/> I will be repotting when it grows bigger.

The young paeoniifolius, has rounded leave and obvious spotted stem.

hi, could you take a picture of your titanum seedling stem? it would help towards identification. and if possible, where were these seeds from?

Hi Bear

Here is the photo of the 2 of the titanum stems. Seller say is from Indonesia but did not mention which state.

Among all, this paeoniifolius remains tiny of the batch, mere 3inch.

Thanks CSBear and Gillie for the ID. Guess will have to wait for 10 years to see to see the result.

I will try to keep this thread updated as it grows. :P/>

In reality its not easy to get flower. Take years, just like the "guan yin bamboo", I have only seen GY the bamboo bloom once when I was primary 5. :lol:/>

If members are interested, I try to find the photo and scan it for posting.

I grow over 50 species of Amorphophallus , and have a few forms of some species .
Our native A.galbra is very variable , as is A.paeoniifolius . A mate has recently discovered a new form with the flower almost an 'alba' colour. I have many planted out on my 3 acre property , lots will grow very well in full sun .

Nice. From here, I learn more about them already. :)/>

Never knew the red arrow heads are aroids. When young, I was always told to avoid the red ones it bec it make skin ichy.
