Is this a corpse plant or a jack-in-the-pulpit ?

Asked August 23, 2015, 1:11 PM EDT

In the 1960s my uncle grew this plant in his basement. I photographed it and it smelled bad like the corpse plant here in the Denver Botanical Gardens. As you can see, it is nearly 8 feet tall.

The news here in Denver sparked my curiosity about the plant my uncle had.

Thanks for the photo Harold.
The plant in your photo may be Devil's Tongue (Amorphophallos rivieri), a close relative of the Corpse Flower at Denver Botanic Gardens (Amorphophallus titanum), also known as Titan Arum.

Thank you very much. I had no results on the internet on what it might be.

Regards, Harold
