Hi Marek,


Amateurs probably kill more plants by poking at them and seeing”if they have come up” than die from any insect or disease. If itseems firm, why not just put it back into the pot and wait patiently for thegrowing season.

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
