We also need….Amorphophallus

7 June, 2009
Amorphophallus: These are typical lowland plants, growing in the tropical and subtropical zones of the paleotropics, from West Africa to the Pacific Islands. None of them are found in the Americas although a remarkably similar but not closely related genus, Dracontium, has evolved there. Most species are endemic. They grow preferably on disturbed grounds, such as secondary forests. [ Wikipedia ]. See recent news in Spanish.
