Hey!

I bought this guy from the horticulture club at my school. They didn't know what it was. They suggested bright indirect light and letting it dry out before watering again. If you have any clues what it is, or at the very least, what care it needs, please let me know.

It looks like it could be a type of amorphophallus, or voodoo lily, but not sure which one.

Thank you!

The little guy has some new green since I showed you those pictures. I'm trying to decide if I should move him a little closer to the window (as he's currently behind a larger plant).

I have mine in the south window, but it is shaded by the porch roof there.

It grows really slow..

Will try to get a photo to show.
