    Plant Description:

    The Devil's Tongue (Amorphophallus titanum) is a flowering plant native to the rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia. It is known for its huge inflorescence, which can grow up to 3 meters (10 feet) tall and produce a strong, unpleasant smell, similar to rotting flesh. The plant is also known as the Corpse Flower because of this smell, which is used to attract pollinators such as beetles and flies. The plant's large size and distinctive smell make it a popular attraction at botanical gardens and greenhouses.

    The Devil's Tongue is a tropical plant and requires warm, humid conditions to grow. It is an herbaceous perennial that grows from an underground tuber. The plant has a single, large leaf that emerges from the tuber and can grow up to 6 meters (20 feet) tall. The leaf dies back after a few months, and the plant goes dormant for a period of time before producing its inflorescence.

    The Devil's Tongue is difficult to grow and cultivate, and it takes several years for the plant to reach maturity and produce an inflorescence. It is not a common plant in cultivation, and it is listed as endangered in its native habitat due to deforestation and habitat loss.

    Growing tips:

    Here are some tips for caring for a Devil's Tongue plant:

    1. Provide the plant with warm, humid conditions. The plant requires a minimum temperature of around 21-27°C (70-80°F) and prefers a high level of humidity.

    2. Water the plant regularly, but be careful not to overwater. The soil should be kept evenly moist, but not soggy.

    3. Fertilize the plant during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer. Follow the instructions on the label for the correct amount and frequency of application.

    4. The plant requires bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, which can cause the leaves to scorch.

    5. Repot the plant every 2-3 years in a pot that is slightly larger than the previous one, using a well-draining soil mix.

    6. The plant goes dormant for a period of time after flowering. During this time, reduce watering and fertilization, and allow the plant to rest.

    7. Be aware that the Devil's Tongue plant produces a strong, unpleasant smell when it flowers. This smell is used to attract pollinators, but it may be unpleasant for people.

    Overall, the Devil's Tongue is a challenging plant to grow and requires a dedicated grower with a green thumb. With proper care, however, it can be a fascinating and rewarding plant to grow.


    The Devil's Tongue (Amorphophallus titanum) is not a commonly grown plant, and there are no known specific benefits to humans. It is mainly grown for its large, striking inflorescence and for its value as an ornamental plant in botanical gardens and greenhouses.

    The plant is native to the rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia, where it is pollinated by beetles and flies attracted to its strong, unpleasant smell, which is similar to rotting flesh. The smell is produced by the plant to attract these pollinators, as it does not have showy flowers or nectar.

    The Devil's Tongue is listed as endangered in its native habitat due to deforestation and habitat loss, so growing and conserving the plant in cultivation can help to preserve the species and support conservation efforts.
