What a cool and unique tropical perennial!  From seed to flower will take 2-3 years. Large glossy dark green foliage with white or black flowers in late spring to early fall.  Mature plant size: 3′(H) X 3′-4′(W).  Best in partial shade, warm location and in moist soil.  Easy to grow when the conditions are right.  Propagate by seeds or dividing plants. Due to its unique flower structure, its natural pollinators are flies, moths and ants.

播種後到子葉長出約2個月,種2-3年左右塊根才會長粗並開花. 植株高大喜蔭喜溫暖濕潤,但不耐寒. 花型特殊. 花期為春末到初秋,越成熟大株的花越多花期也拉的較長.  成熟株高3呎,寬幅3-4呎. 繁殖方式以種子或分株為主.  它的花構造不太一樣,自然界的授粉昆蟲為蠅類,蛾類及蟻類.
