180 (300)cm, Elephant Ear Titan Aroid is a tall species from Malaysia, cultivated throughout the tropics. Makes a leaf similar to those in Amorphophallus titanum, above a nicely white to dark brown checkered stem. Its large, dark maroon red inflorescence unfolds just above the ground. For any rich, well drained to humus rich and sandy soil in a partially shaded spot, keep always warm at a minimum of 20°C in summer, respectively dormant corms in a completely dry soil at a minimum of some 15°C in winter. The large tuber may gain up to 10kg in weight. Sow seeds in a slightly moist, rich, well drained soil, keep pots at 20°C to 27°C, turn seedlings to a partially shaded place in summer, respectively to a sunny spot during winter months.
