Dragon Flower Relocation

What is the best way to relocate a dragon flower?

ANSWERS

Do you mean Dragon flower (Dracunculus vulgaris, AKA: Voodoo lily) or Dragon flower (Physostegia virginiana, AKA: Obedient plant, False dragonhead)? These are two different plants. The first is a bulb that transplants easily by simply digging up the plants or bulbs in spring or fall and replanting elsewhere. This article has more information about this plant:https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/voodoo-lily/voodoo-lily-information.htm

The other one is a perennial with spikes of white, lavender, or pink blooms. The entire clump can be dug up and moved in spring or fall, depending on where you live. Here is more info: http://gardening.about.com/od/plantprofile1/p/Obedient_Plant.htm

Beware, as both of these plants can be vigorous spreaders and self-seed readily.

Voodoo Lily Seed Balls?

These appeared at the base of the wife’s voodoo lilies. They are black, about 2 inches across and look like a pomegranate after it’s been peeled. Are they seed balls or what? If so, how and what do we do with them? There has been no special treatment to the area where they are planted (it’s pet’s final spot). I planted the corms between 4-6 inches deep and the spot is mainly shadowed.

Yes, this is a seed head. It generally falls over when it is ripe.
Ants and beetles will carry the seeds to other areas of the garden.

You can allow the seeds to dry on the plant then collect them.
Wear gloves when handling all parts of the plant and seeds.
Sow the seeds right away since they do not store well.

Voodoo Bulb

I received the voodoo as a gift. Neither me or the giver knew that there would be
an odor. Are all Voodoos the same bulb? What an be done? Worst is she sent 1 bulb to each of our cousins (all adults, none know about the odor; we all were told it’s is a houseplant).

ANSWERS

Unfortunately, nothing can be done about the odor. They can be a houseplant if one doesn't mind the odor. If the bulb you and your cousins received is up to 10 inches across, round and flattened - then, yes, it is the same type of bulb. Voodoo lilies can get up to 6 feet tall.

You can remove the little pups from the side of the plant and place them in a pot to propagate.
Removing them will not harm the mother plant.

A Particular Plant

What is the name of the plant that grows bushy, fan like leaves (green), and has stem with spots on them like snake skin. It lies dormant during winter months but re-appears in the late spring. It is a pretty leafy green plant and multiplies each year. Help? Someone told me that it is a snake plant but not so. Thanks for your info.

While it COULD be a Peony Leaf Voodoo Lily (sometimes called the Elephant Foot Yam), I am not able to make a definite identification from your description. Can you give more detail? Growing zone, environment where this plant is found? Is this a perennial garden plant or a wild woodland flower?

Amorphophallus Kon Jac Vodo Lilly

my husband has a vodo lilly but for the last few years it has been only producing the ferns I would like to know why can you help me

ANSWERS

It might be that the plant is not yet mature. If however the plant has flowered in the past, it may be that it doesn't currently have optimal nutrition for flowering. Try increasing the amount of phosphorus by adding bone meal or other phosphorus fertilizers. Too much nitrogen fertilizer can also inhibit flowering.
