  Cultivation of Amorphophallus konjac
From: LisaOthello at gateway.net on 2000.01.20 at 05:30:31(4008)
Hi everybody!!

I have several questions about the cultivation of my Amorphophallus konjac.
I purchased it at the end of summer last year while it was in it's leaf
stage. When the leaf died back I brought it into the house because I have no
garage or basement in which to over winter it. It now has several offsets
which I've read should be removed while the bulb is dormant. The bulb has
never really gone dormant, so is it still okay to remove the offsets (or is
it better to just leave them)? To do that do I simply slice them off flush
with the main bulb?
Second, the bulb has a bud that is about 3/4" long, should I plant it in
normal potting soil

A. konjacs are fairly easy to grow. You can take them out of the soil for
the winter
