Images are used for general reference only. The size and shape of each plant will vary as well as the bloom state. 

Exotic tropical and subtropical tuberous plants in the Aracae family. Produces only one petiole with a single compound leaf from an underground tuber. The tuber shrinks away as the new leaf grows. During the growing season a new, larger tuber replaces it. 

The fleshy leaf stalk (petiole) is a very interesting mottled pinkish-gray and olive green. Larger tubers (about the size of a grapefruit or larger) may produce single inflorescence in late winter or spring before the foliage appears. A heavy stalk bears a large, shiny brown-purple to maroon ruffled spathe. The flower is quite large, but possesses an odor similar to that of rotting meat, meant to attract pollinators. 

Light: These plants prefer full sun to part sun

Water: During the growing season, keep plants evenly moist. Be sure to use a well drained potting mix and pot with drainage.

Environment: Voodoo Lily prefer warm temperature growing conditions. Voodoo Lily requires a dry, dormant rest period every year (fall–winter). Wait until the leaves turn brown before removing them. Once your plant goes dormant, stop watering. During the winter rest period the tuber can remain in its pot in the dry growing medium or can be removed from the growing medium and stored in peat moss. 

Toxicity: Consumption of the raw plant has been reported to be toxic to humans and animals.

Of Note:

  • Plants can grow up to 4–6 feet tall
  • Can take years to bloom — patience is key
  • No pruning required
  • Separate offsets when dormant

*When planting in a pot without a drainage hole, avoid over watering by estimating 25% of the container’s overall volume, with appropriate drainage materials incorporated when planting.
