Voodoo Lily is an unpretentious and easy-to-grow plant with a pronounced dormant period in the home setting. The plant is used as an ornamental, despite the smell of rotten meat emitted by it during flowering.
Voodoo Lilies (Amorphophallus konjac, synonymous with A. rivieri) is a perennial tuberous plant. Its inflorescence is always single, representing a long dark purple cob directed upwards. The plant grows in tropical East Asia from Japan to Indonesia in open spaces, forest margins, and thickets, in secondary forests, at high altitudes above sea level.
