I wanted to share a pic of my Dracontium polyphyllum that is blooming for the first time after having it for 5 years. This is my favorite genus in the aroid family, although few people find them interesting. For those who are not familiar with these it is the Central/South American cousin to Amorphophallus :D Dan
