This striking native from Afghanistan to Tibet has been described as a plant of El Greco-esque proportions, with a deep, narrow bright-green- with-white-stripes spathe, a hood that rises up instead of curving down, and ends in a long whip, a spadix with a long and purple-black or green whip, and multi-fingered leaves! Quite a specimen.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
