Plant Experimentation: Voodoo Lily (Amorphophallus Bulbifer), Day 1.

Another packet of seeds I picked up is that of the Voodoo Lily, or Amorphophallus Bulbifer.

I read that the Voodoo Lily seeds are supposed to have been kept moist, so I hope that these will still be good. They look pretty dry.

The packet came with 10 seeds, so I decided to divide them in half and try two different techniques (though similar). I took 5 seeds, placed them in a small pot with moist vermiculite.

The pot was then placed inside a ziploc bag to retain moisture, and was placed on a shelf closer to the heater, where it hopefully will be kept a little on the warmer side.

The other 5 seeds were placed in a moist paper towel, which was placed into a ziploc bag.

This ziploc bag was placed in a north-facing window, hanging from the blinds.

I am intrigued by this plant with a flower that stinks to high heaven. I’m hoping I can get at least one to grow.
