Second Amorphophallus konjac Flowers
After the first of the three Amorphophallus konjac plants bloomed in January, the second is on show now in the Lowlands Tropic Glasshouse. Unlike the first one, which caught horticulturist Nathan Kelso by surprise, the two remaining plants were moved to a public glasshouse well in advance of flowering. With the plant now in full bloom it is hard to miss the powerful smell emanating from it. The plant which flowered earlier today should be followed by the third and final one hopefully blooming next week.
