About this book

Language: French

Amorphophallus is a genus of plants that includes nearly 200 tropical and subtropical species. It includes one giant species, Amorphophallus titanum, which has the record for the largest inflorescence. Unpredictable and rare, it attracts many people curious to see it in the few botanical gardens that manage to grow this fascinating plant. This book presents the Amorphophallus, describes its different species, and how it is grown and why. The book also covers other genera belonging to the same botanical family, and which, also, have plants with extraordinary characteristics.
