Marked down!!

These plants are easy to grow. I have two sizes, 3-1/2 x 4" pots, and 4" x5" pots.
They look like herbaceous palm trees and have a pretty green trunk (petiole) with spots. They grow from a bulb and die back in the fall.
Once the bulbs reach about 2" in diameter, they are flowering size and before the plant comes up in the spring it will flower with a large Calla lily looking flower. Often it has a bad smell, like a dead animal or something like that. It's part of the appeal of these plants for some people, but if you don't like the smell, just spray the flower with some water and the smell stops.
They like partial sun. Morning sun and dappled shade in the afternoon are great. They aren't hardy unless you live in a warm area.
The group photos are the plants for sale. The smaller ones are $7and the larger ones are $10. It's a bit hard to tell but the smaller pots are smaller than the Coke can and the larger pots are just a bit bigger than the Coke. The larger ones will probably bloom next spring. I've included close ups of what the leaf and petiole look like, and the flower. Oh, and the seed pods! BLUE!!
Shipping by priority mail, 2 pounds from 37725 and the plants will be removed from their pots.
I've sold on Cubits, ATP, and Dave's Garden and I used to run the Calla Lily Co-op, which hopefully will start up again if there is more interest.

Hi Shirley! I'm glad they're doing well. They're such nice flowers, I wish more people were interested in them. Do you have the konjac voodoo lily and do you grow it in the ground or a pot?

Susan, I would like one of the larger sizes. Is it hardy to your area?

Susan, I received my voodoo lily today. I could not be more pleased. It arrived just as healthy as the day it was shipped. It was well packaged and stabilized in the box. I did not measure the height, but it must be at least 3' tall. I will follow your instructions for winterizing and will see blooms next year. Thank you!

Shirley, this is a different variety and we don't know if it's hardy. I wish I had good soil here to try them in the ground, we have only rock.

If you wait a week or two the plants will go dormant, then I can mail the bulbs in a first class box, much cheaper.

Hi Roxanne,
It will take about 2 weeks for them to go dormant, but the shipping will only be about $3 for a small box, 1st class. Message me your info.

I just want to say that these are the coolest looking plants. Maybe next year I'll get me some but can't do it now. No more room at the inn. Can they survive Texas heat?

They probably can take the heat, as long as they get water and a bit shade. Their home country is Taiwan.
This summer we had temps in the 90s almost every day and they seemed to love it.
