Amorphophallus albus, Dwarf White Voodoo Lily is another of the small group of temperate Amophophallus in a genus of predominantly tropical species. For that reason, it is a prized addition to any collection offering the grower a no-fuss plant than can be nurtured to flowering-size without all the heating required for the tropical species. A relatively small-sized plant with the typical umbrella foliage it has an eccentric shaped inflorescence with a pale creamy-green spathe and a prominent creamy-yellow or sometimes green spadix.

Amorphophallus albus freely produces many offsets sending out rhizomatous stolons that will quickly form a large clump. It does well in a cool unheated glasshouse under netting or can be placed outside in a woodland or jungle setting where it can benefit from the overhang of larger plants. Humidity during the summer growing season and a warm mulch of bark are important. As with all the Aroids, attention to providing a free-draining yet fertile substrate is key to success.
