This is a very rare Amorphophallus from the rainforest in northern and western Sumatra. The inflorescence has a large, white-pink spadix surrounded by a purple spathe with light spots. The spathe grows quite wide and often hangs forward with its tip, resembling a kind of hood. The height of the inflorescence can be up to 60 cm, and the umbrella-shaped leaf grows a little taller at 90 cm. The flower and leaf stalk are usually spotted, but unspotted also occurs in individuals. The plant grows from an underground tuber and has an occasional dormant period. This period follows irregularly and is not affected by drought or lower temperature. 

The plant can be kept in highly permeable soil with organic matter. Keep that soil constantly slightly moist, even during the dormant period. In addition, provide a shady spot and preferably a temperature above 20grC.  

The species is named after Italian botanist Odoardo Beccari who found and described Amorphophallus titanum in Sumatra.

Sowing description: The seed can be (further) cultivated in a well-drained soil mixture with organic material. Keep that constantly slightly moist. For initial development, a temperature of 25-30grC is optimal.
