Last year I stored my konjacs in paper bags, and '99 A-101(stipitatus?) and
A-102 (sp. 1?) in dry pots in the basement (anyone know their proper

Why even risk leaving the others in the ground. NJ would be pretty "unpleasant" by most Amorph standards. You will probably spend the winter worrying that they are dead and lost... spare yourself the trouble and dig them out.

Well, I'm south of you, but if you're near the ocean, we may be the
same zone - I'm in the cold part of 7. My A. konjac has been in the
ground all the 4 years or so that I've had it. It has never bloomed,
but has increased - now have 3 stems coming up and not exactly right
next to each other, either.

If you have more than one, try one and see what happens.
