Best grown in a slightly shaded spot that gets moisture during the growing season and remains drier during winter. Or pot it up so growing conditions are easy to manage. Watch it develop into an unusual 1m tall plant, which when mature (after about 3 years), will produce a slighly pink arum-type flower, similar to the flower of a Spath or Peace lily. The flower produces odd, and somewhat unpleasant scent for the first day after opening and then persists for another week or so without any smell. After it has finished flowering, an attractive cluster or red berries develops. There is a seed inside each fruit. The Voodoo Lily dies off in autumn each year & comes back in spring.

The A. bulbifer also produces a large quantity small bulbils that form on the leaves in Autumn. It is possible to grow new plants from these bulbils.
