The word amorphophallus comes from the Greek words amorphous, meaning without shape and phallus meaning penis due to its shape. These somewhat funny plants are lowland plants. They grow in the tropical and subtropical zones, from West Africa to the Pacific Islands. They can be carefully prepared and cooked, after removing some parts of the plant that can cause irritation. Amorphallus titanium smells like rotten animal hence the name corpse lily.
