This is why it smells like something died in my living room right now.
It’s been six months since I planted Betty’s berries and I now have a small family of amorphophallus titanum.
Though it looks like a small tree, what you see here is actually a single leaf.
Of the eight Amorphophallus titanum seeds I planted, one rotted, two are growing, and the others are still somewhere in between.
It still lives in a plastic bag, under lights, on a heating mat, but it’s about to outgrow all three.
The first Titan Arum seed has broken ground.
Trying my hand at growing one of nature’s most unusual plants, the Titan Arum.
