Your help is needed for its I.D. confirmation. Inserted is a thread I posted on the other forum in search of an answer; http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1172883/

The big round one looks like Konjac (Amorphophallus rivieri). The smaller ones - my guess is you'll have to wait till they sprout and have leaves to get a good ID.

A. rivieri. I'll have to look that up. LariAnn, the smaller ones are projections that broke off from the bigger one. I suspected those are the future 'babies' that I saw after the main bulbs withered. Thank you.

Yes, I've the photo some where in my files (which is not accessible right quick). But I look it up and LariAnn was right-on! It's Konjac. Thank again LariAnn.

My Konjacs look nothing like the big one. Here's an example of mine:

Looks like Amorphophallus konjac to me as well, especially after I looked at the other thread and saw the top of the bulb and read your description.

Tommyr2006, it's Konjac. See other photos from my link above. Only mine, that once has bloomed and the stalk center is detoriating. I hope the small bulblets will survive and give me some offsprings. The plants have given me lot of fun time watching them grow over the years.

My Konjacs today. I've one that's about 3.5 feet tall that accompanied by many little ones. Here is one of the newest addition to the pot. I've 5-6 offsprings in this container. All total the big one, plus all the little small bulbs/tubers were planted after I raised my I.D. question above.
