Giraffe's Knees flowering

Recommended Posts

Love it!

Zamioculcas get those bulges on the leaf stems, I've often thought they were trying to form tubers within them. Would that make any sense? I've tried cutting just below them and using them for propagation. Still too early to say if it works.

Never noticed those bulges on the Giraffes Knees produce anything. Amorphophallus symonianus have a bulge right at the top of the stem and some bulbils form inside them. Can get 2 - 3 new plants out of one of them. But the Giraffes Knees must produce a lot of seeds as there are lots of seedlings coming up all over the garden. However, I've never noticed berries/seeds developing, although I don't believe in spontaneous generation so must be seeds. They can also be propagated from leaflet cuttings.
