My corpse flower is putting out a new leaf
I would like to give you an update on my corpse flower. Amorphophallus titanum, more generally referred to as the corpse herb, is one of the strangest plants you will cultivate indoors. This is certainly not a plant for beginners, but it is undoubtedly one of the plant world’s greatest oddities.
Usually, this type of plant only puts out one large leave each year. The leaf is supposed to die back each year. However last year, the leaf did not die back. This year, it appears to have put out two more leaves, so I’m not exactly sure what’s going on. I don’t know if this means that a second bulb has developed, or if the same bulb is putting out multiple leaves. The plant is so rare, that it’s difficult to find much information about it online.
I am currently growing mine in a fishbowl. During the winter, I had the top of the fishbowl covered with plastic to increase the humidity, but now I’ve taken the plastic off because it was causing the leaf to bend a lot. When the winter comes again, I’m not sure what I’m going to do because I still need to find a way to increase the humidity, so I may need to wrap it again. Above, you can see what it looks like now.
