Most of the tubers that I transplanted are growing fine now . All have shot
up very large colourful petioles , but as yet the leaf has not unfolded.As a
identifying aid , I have noticed that the emergent leaf is very dark brown
on this sp. compared to dark green on D.pittieri. [I was having trouble
telling the two apart ]
Just as i thought , I missed 4 tubers that had grown very deep into the
sandy soil we have here. All infloresences will have to be cut of , or the
threat of herbicide has been mentioned !! [LOL]
