About 2 months ago I watched as my Typhonium pedunculatum's end leaves began
to droop and curl. I didn't know if this was a precursor to dormancy or some
problem with the plant. Over the weeks I watched more and more leaves curl
and droop until finally I unpotted it to find not much left of a rotting
tuber. It's gone.

Remember Mj, you have friends in Miami and should never be without a
Gonatopus bovinii. Tricia

Sounds like the gammet of tuber rot problems.

Use a drier soil mix.. and stop watering.

I have gonatopus as well (here in florida) growing rampantly in the backyard... When my pool was being built my sprinklers were turned off for 7 weeks, and we were in the biggest drought in 50 years.

The plant couldnt have cared less.
