Snake Palm Voodoo lily, Devils tongue, Corpse flower, Amorphophallus
Here is an interesting plant.
I just wanted to share a couple of pics of Snake Palm.
I've had these since 2004 or 2005. Usually around the end of May the Snake Palm starts to pop up-they are kind of like a bulb-and get larger during the year.
A few years back, a couple came up early, and to my surprise, were like a pitcher plant, bad smell and all.
Well, a guess this just happens every few years, and this year, they are 'blooming' again. And the smell...kind of like rotting flesh!
It smells like something died!
It's similar to a 'carrion' plant....
