The first year they will produce a 10" to 12" plant, then grow bigger every year and then developing the flower.
Voodoo lily is a member of the philodendron family that grows from a tuber. Each tuber produces a single tripartite leaf on a tall, mottled stem. Voodoo lily is a perennial generally grown as a curiosity for its unusual flower and interesting foliage. But be aware; When in bloom it produces an odor like a dead animal (Corpse flower comes to mind which is a relative). The smell is intended to attract the carrion flies that are its natural pollinators. If this is objectionable, the flower can be cut off or covered with a plastic bag to confine the smell.
As a tender plant, the leaf is very frost sensitive (although buried tubers are supposedly hardy to zone 6), and must be grown indoors as a house plant or as a seasonal outdoor plant. It is easy to plant the tubers outdoors once the soil has warmed and dig them again in the fall once the weather cools.
The mother tuber will form offsets, eventually making a giant clump -very exotic and unusual! Amorphophallus konjac has long been prized medicinally for its weight loss properties and is now used in many weight loss products. The corm has dietary and medicinal uses and provides several vitamins, but must be used only after careful research.
