I have about 8 Voodoo Lilies, the botanical name is Amorphophallus henryi. The plants are at least 1 foot tall and they will get bigger every year. In the fall the plant will die back and you can dig the bulb and store it dry (I keep mine in a paper bag in the basement) until the next spring. You can also leave it in the pot if the soil is completely dry. Once the bulb gets big enough it will bloom in the spring with a black stinky flower. This plant is usually grown as a conversation piece or curiosity due to it's unusual odor, but if you want to get rid of the smell, simply spray the flower with water. If the flower is pollinated, you'll see a seedhead grow, the fruit is blue, and you can grow new plants from the seed. Every year the bulb will also create offsets, small bulbs attached to the main bulb. These usually fall off when you dig up the bulb and you can also start new plants this way. I'm not sure how hardy these are, I would say if your ground freezes more than a few inches deep in the winter it will not be hardy. Or, if the ground stays wet and cold. These are interesting plant due to the umbrella -like leaf and the beautiful green and white speckled stem. Some of the pots have more than one plant. These are small plants and will most likely not be big enough to bloom next year. Very easy to grow!!
$5 each plus USPS priority shipping. I usually ship the next day after payment, due to eclipse frenzy here in TN I will start shipping on Tuesday Aug 22.

The last 5 photos show a large stem, what the flower looks like, and what the seed pod looks like. Just to show you what you'll have in a few years!
