Hi Marek,

Oh, you will definitely know if it is rotten.  Pycnospatha collapse very quickly and smell horrible.  Your tuber still looks good to me.

Hi all,
Last year I bought one tuber, it produced a leaf and fell into dormancy as it should (I cultivated it at home).
This year it hasn't put any leaf or roots. Yesterday I dug it from the pot and I still don't know if it is alive or not.
I scratched it a little - it was cream beige inside and seemed solid. 
I broke the tip where the leaf should grow from and it was wet.
How to check if it is not rotten? What to do with the tuber?
I stored it during dormancy also in the room temperature.
Here are 2 photos, I can do better images if neccesary (macro closeups).
Please help me
