This is a very rare species in cultivation, and likely a one time offering.
These unusual plants grow from a thick, slowly growing tuber, often branching, which creeps horizontally just below the soil surface. Horizontal tuber can measure up to 30" long by 10" across, the plant produces one huge, much-divided leaf with a stout prickly stem. The compound leaves are up to 30 inches tall and are supported on slender spotted stems with very rose-like thorns. The fascinating leaves are an enlogated bi-lobed bat shape, often with fenestrations (window holes).
These are now mature, over 20 years old seedlings of a most unusual aroid, distantly related to Amorphophallus. These seeds were planted in 2000, originated from an ethnobotanist in the jungles of Benin, along the west coast of Africa. The indigenous people there use the species for a variety of medicinal properties.

Shade garden Q&A

How to finding plants for the shade garden?

What are the best plants for shade you might ask? Well there are so many, it is hard to pick just a few. It really depends on your space and your own personal tastes. If you are just looking for a nice ground cover for your shade space, consider one of the most colorful shade plants, Alternanthera dentata also known as Red Thread Burgundy. It is a beautiful burgundy color and will spread to form a low mound of color. It is pretty friendly to other plants and when planted around evergreen shade plants it makes a wonderful contrast.

Are there any tropical trees that do better in shade?

The Chocolate tree, Theobrama Cacao is a wonderful tree. It is an evergreen that loves shade, but it does require temperatures that stay above 50° F. If you have other tall trees to provide a good shade and you are in a tropical area, it is one to consider. Grow it and harvest the beans to make your own hot chocolate or better yet some chocolate syrup for your ice cream. If you like coffee, consider growing your own coffee tree in the shade. If you don’t like coffee, you should grow it and just enjoy the beautiful red coffee beans.

Are there any colorful flowering bushes or plants for shade?

You would be surprised at the number of flowers that love the shade. Here you will find many flowers and several flowering shrubs for shade. Many of these plants will tolerate a mix of sun and shade, so read the descriptions to pick those that best fit your area.
