How did you narrow down the species? I can't seem to find anything definitive to identify one I found.

You've found the right place Jessie! Look forward to more spots from Florida.

Thank you! Edited! Look forward to spending lots of time on here! Very cool considering I spend a lot of time snapping nature pics.

Your welcome. Your guess is right, it's native to SE Asia. Welcome to Noah Jessie. It would be great if you could 'edit this spotting' and add the new common and latin names. Thanks.

So bizarre. I'd be very excited if one of these popped up in my backyard!

Thanks! after countless google searches I came up with nothing LOL. I have never seen anything like this before. My guess is it is not native?

Very cool! The Amorphophallus are so fascinating. We had A. titanum bloom at my work last year, it was amazing!
