The Amorphophallus konjac are blooming, which means I say "wonder what died?" every time I walk around near the deck.
The blooms are stinky, like death, decaying meat. Pretty though.
Just photos today of the five blooms I have going at once...
The green dots you see in some of the photos are aphids. Somehow these plants got infested with them while still growing in my garage, and I have not been able to get rid of them. They're not doing any harm from what I can see.
The foliage from a smaller corm:
Probably a couple more years before that one flowers.
Beautiful stuff, especially if you're experiencing it digitally. In person, not so much fun.
