The voodoo lily is a very unique flower. It is a corm, not a bulb. To bloom it requires very little care. Like the ones in the wild, it needs spring floods and mulch with light fertilizer. The hard part is waiting for size; a quarter sized corm will take 3 to 4 years to get big enough to bloom, but it is worth the wait.
The green 4 foot stalk only produced leaves on the top each year, but with or without the bloom, this is a class A keeper. It stinks only if you're within 3 feet of it, but it is pollinated by fruit flies.
