  Amorphophallus konjac, multiple buds
From: ". ." iamwhatiam52 at hotmail.com> on 2002.04.15 at 08:59:30(8553)
I have a thirty pound A. konjac bulb (tuber? corm?) whose flowering tip was
damaged. It now has half a dozen growing tips emerging. I am concerned
that if they are all allowed to grow, I will end up with many smaller bulbs
instead of one huge one. Would cutting out all but one bud prevent this?
Any experts out there have some advice for me?

Mitch,

they are tubers...

There is a dominant bud that normally keeps the others from growing! I
don't think you would have multiple shoots (leafs) on one tuber!! you
should have just the one big tuber!1 But who knows it will take its own
course!

Hope this would help and have fun growing
