Amorphophallus bulbifer (Roxb.) Blume has leaves with purple-edged segments, leaflets obovate or lanceolate; mature leaf bears bulbil ……. this much I can say!


efi page on Amorphophallus paeoniifolius 


… is correct, it is Amorphophallus bulbifer. On a recent trip to the Upper Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh I have come across similar plants near Pasighat that were also brown tinged. The flowers should appear shortly after the first non-flowering plants give shoots and on our way to Yingkiong we saw several in bud. 10 days later on our way back the forested area north of Pasighat was full of flowering and shooting plants.


Thank you Sir. I copied part of what I found in ‘Bengal Plants’, ‘Flora of British India’ and ‘Botany of Bihar and Orissa’.

I too have similar thought as of …; could be some galls ?
And the plant could be some Amorphophallus sp.
