 Amorphophallus ongsakulii is a cute mini, and it doesn't stink.  It stays in my tropical greenhouse year round, gets a dry rest in winter, and then eventually sprouts, at which time I water heavily for the rest of the summer.  Winter temps are sometimes below 50 in the dry corner and on the growing bench in summer well over 100 at times with heavy overhead misting at noon.  The photo shows the first blooms of this season.  It will produce many more.  Got it many years ago from Plant Delights and it continues to grow and multiply.  It has never produced seeds though.
Bob  Zone 7  where we got 2" of rain Friday and now it's hot.  After an unusually cold spring, summer has definitely arrived!
