Wilbert L.A. Hetterscheid,
Sara Buri; Central Thailand
Minimum - Medium
This member of the
was given this name by Wilbert Leonard Anna Hetterscheid in 1994. It is found in Sara Buri
in central Thailand, growing in a well drained but rich limestone mix with
quite some water and but little or no direct sun. The caudex can grow to
20 centimetres in diameter, five centimetres high, the entire plant
from 30 to 60 centimetres in height. The flowers are creamy-white.
The genera name from
ancient Greek amorphos, 'without form, misshapen' and phallos,
referring to the shape of the prominent spadix. The species name
from Latin; atro; 'dark, and -viridis; 'green' for
the leaves, which have a fine red margins.
In the wild, the caudex sit deep, and I'm not sure how it will
appreciate to be exposed.
