Foto: Voodoolelie

Amorphophallus variabilis Blume is native to Indonesia (OHTSUKI 1968) and grows wild up to 700 to 900 m above sea level in Java. Madura and Kangean Islands (HEYFERSCHEID and ITTENBACH, 1996; YUZAMM 2000). 
The corms contain soluble sugars and glucomannan (OHTSUKI, 1968; SAFII, 1981; WIYANI, 1988) . Sliced and dry corms have been used for a long time as feed for swine and cattle in some districts in Java, but seldom for human consumption because of their acridity (OHTSUKI,1968).
Indonesian people intend to eradicate A. variabilis plants because the petioles remind them of snakes (people in West Java refer to the plant as the habitat of snakes) and the spadices emit an unpleasant odor.
