This flower usually requires 5 to 10 years of vegetative growth before first blooming. After initial bloom, some plants may not bloom again for 7 to 10 years while others may bloom every 2-3 years. Therefore, this flower is said to be very rare.

In 2018, the carrion flower was included in the Red Book of Threatened and Endangered Plants. Indonesian government law is very concerned with the preservation of this special flower.
