  A. konjac Tubers
From: ManFont at aol.com on 1998.10.17 at 03:24:15(2700)
Previously I had written about and asked questions regarding the active growth
expectations of A. konjac in South Florida.

My first plant has gone dormant and I have removed it from the growing media.
I was both fascinated and amused by the unusual growths...only a mother could
love this thing ;-) This one had come from a tuber ('John Riordan' clone)
offered by Dewey Fisk as a donation to the International Aroid Society. It
went from a small garlic clove size to that of a large grapefruit in one
season! It has what I assume are offsets, five of them. These are only about
the size of a US quarter in diameter.

Do you think that this larger tuber might actually flower this coming Spring?
Should I treat the small tubers differently initially until they reach a
larger size?
