Searching for Amorphophallus aphyllus

I'm looking for Amorphophallus aphyllus bulbs and/or seeds.

Thanks in advance.

...right now at ebay......


aphyllus is very rare and not too easy in culture; therefore, although the species makes offsets, offsets are rare, too.
It needs probably very high temperatures; in the Botanical Garden in Hamburg, they hold it in cacti greenhouse.

Let alone these restrictions there are a few people who can not ony grow aphyllus, but can also offer them now and then.... see:…=item4d1d518b82

Happy bidding, Bernhard.

Hello Bernhard,

Thank you very much for this very useful information. I know about the bulb offered on ebay, but wanted to see if there were also some people here who has this species and might have some for sale now or in the future. Because it's quite an expensive species and I trust the people on this forum a bit better then just somebody on ebay with a inflorescence picture from IAS.

I read in the Internet it was pretty easy to grow and that they made offsets quite regularly. I have a small greenhouse (for now, I have access to a bigger one, but it's unheated and because of that quite expensive), or in my dad's greenhouse is also possible. Was planning in growing most of them outside (northern part of the Netherlands) as soon as the come above the ground. Have nice part in our garden, an open space between big oak trees. Funny thing is, I live next to a botanical garden

Difficult decision. Recently bought an old lithografie of this species because of it's beauty.

Why are they so addictive. It's not because they're all small like Asclepiads :icon_seb_zunge:

Hoi die Willem !

Could you post the links where the cultivation is described as easy?

With the seller pflanzensucht at ebay you can be pretty sure to get what he offers - he is member of our Forum as well, but under his usual nickname RealTreder.
Chris is one of the people in Germany who collects Amorphophallus for a very long time already and he knows worldwide many people who are the usual suspects in regard to collecting Amorphophallus.
You will also find him in the facebook group moderated, when I remember it correctly, by Marco Motta.
He uses the pictiures from the IAS, because he has the OK for this by Wilbert Hetterscheid and others who provided the pictures.
But he has also a lot of own pictures:

So..... Happy bidding, Bernhard.

Hello Bernhard,
I will look it up, don't know exactly where I read it, but I will find it again. Thank you very much also for giving info about the seller, not everybody on the Internet can be trusted. But then I guess the price is also right for this species. Think I will message him also for a bit of extra info about this plant.

Thanks again for the useful information.

Best regards

I have been searching for more info, but couldn't find the page where I read A. aphyllus was an easy to grow species. But I talked to the seller/Chris and he told me it wasn't the easiest species. They need a well drained soil and a warm place, they don't need heat above 30 celsius degrees. They make maybe 1-2 offsets every year if they like their growing conditions.

this fits more to the things I have heard before.....

and it's a pity, since this species is not only very nice because of it's flower, but also because of it's unusual leaf..

and even worse: it cannot be propagated by leafcuttings (as far as I know)....

and no idea, if someone has produced seed with cultivated plants....

Happy growing, Bernhard.
