I've gotten most of the plants out of the garage now, as it's been an up-and-down spring but warmer weather seems to be here to stay. It was so warm a month ago that most of it was outside already, but had to be dragged back in again when the cold returned.
The voodoo lily (Amorphophallus konjac) bulbs though have stayed on a shelf the whole time. I noticed recently that they seemed to be waking up...
..but that was a week ago and this is more than I expected!
Lucky me, each of my biggest bulbs are putting up flower stalks. This means that I'm going to have several of the rotten/death smelling blooms in the near future. Blech. One was enough...
|The two in back were stopped by the shelf but have continued|
...but five? I'll have vultures circling overhead!
I'm hoping that this doesn't mean that I won't see any foliage this year, as the one that bloomed in 2014 did not produce any leaves -- but did create these pups.
Here's a reminder of what the foliage looked like last summer:
We'll see what happens, but for now I just need to get these out of the garage before it's too late!
