I'm reposting this message as my original came through blank.
Warning to all about our fiend, oops, I mean friend Bonaventure. I asked him for a few tubers last year and he sent me about 40!
One of them looks a little strange. I'll have to take a picture, although I have kind of a cruddy camera. The plant appears perfectly happy but has a bump or ball about 3 inches up the stem. This is a small plant, only about 5-6" (14cm?) so far. The abberation doesn't look like an injury.
Ah, this is too hard to explain. I'll try to get a picture.

Carefull, you might have Gonatopus! No, that is not a sexually transmitted
disease... just one hell of a pest in the garden if it escapes... The
'bump' in the stem is the clue....

Ah, thank you, Dewey! Although my zone 5 isn't friendly to escaped aroids, you never know. Maybe my raspberries and strawberries can do battle with it (I think they are determined to take over the world- both grow faster than kudzu). The plant in question is in a little pot now, and I'll keep an eye on it....

Sue, still don't have any of those Gonadotopons in my yard, none dropped
there. That species then may have truly supernatural abilities to spread.
A thought on bulblet production and the particular success of digging
around or rototilling in propagating and increasing numbers of some of
these bulbous species:
