Hi,

I use two parts John Innes No3/ one part corse grit-and sit the tubers on a little bed of sand to help prevent rotting. I feed every other watering in summer.

Hope this helps'

James

merci

It can be variable depending on which species. I don't have Sauromatum but I have one Dracontium and 9 different Amorphophallus. Generally just leaf mould wouldn't have a good balance of nutrients. Mine are in a heavier soil with a lot of organic matter. The A. titanum have a courser medium with better drainage.

Hi everyone

I'v done very well using a mix of 50% JI no 3 and 50% multi purpose compost and then I mix in some perlite and sand until it looks about right!!

Question to all.... What the biggest anyones managed to grow a amorphophallus saurmatum (voodoo lily) to, Leaf size/hight and weight of bulb?

Thanks James

I'm using peat and perlite for all my Amorphophallus, much the same as I do for CPs :P

No experience with saurmatum, but I remember reading somewhere that A. titanum could grow over 6m tall and over 60kg for the tuber. I think A. gigas may be slightly taller, but not heavier.
