Elephant Foot Yam/Amorphophallus paeoniifolius

Hey ECHO Community,

Does anyone have any experience growing Elephant Foot Yam/Amorphophallus paeoniifolius in SE Asia?

Please share your experience! Here to learn.

Thanks,
Maddie

Hi Maddie,
I’m trying to grow them in Myanmar
Cheers

Hey Wayne,

How is it going for you?

Maddie

Hi Maddie,
If you ignore the fact that I’m locked out of Myanmar because of Covid, and our efy’s didn’t do all that well last year because the soil is like concrete in the summer and saturated in the rainy season and in desperate need of resurrection, then I’m doing really well.
Where abouts in south east Asia are you thinking of planting elephant foot yam?
Cheers
Wayne

It’s a fun crop! This helped a lot:

my experience:

we are looking to grow in it in Myanmar as well.

Keith, thank you so much for sharing this info!

Hi Maddie

Whereabouts in Myanmar are you growing them?

cheers
