Subject: [Aroid-l] Pycnospatha arietina - a problem

Dear Marek=2C

This is Christmas time. =3B Like all of us children=2C be patient!
Your tuber/corm looks perfectly normal=2C and probably is in dormancy. =3B =3B This is a really tropical species=2C and so may need a lot of warmth to break dormancy.

Good Growing=2C


>=3B>=3BHi all=2C
Last year I bought one tuber=2C 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. =3BYesterday I =3Bdug it from the pot and I still don't know if it is alive or not.
I scratched it a little - it was cream =3Bbeige inside and seemed solid. =3B
I broke =3Bthe tip where the leaf should grow from and it =3Bwas 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=2C I can do better images if neccesary (macro closeups).
Please help me
