  How big DO they get.

On a similar note, is there an upper limit to how big Amorphophallus konjac
PLANTS can get? Mine never seem to get larger than five feet. A 12 pound
bulb grew a plant just shy of five feet high and wide, while a 25 pounder
grew a plant just barely five feet.
By the way, my garden is in Long Island NY, and most of my plants are grown
in full sun.

I have noticed that light levels have a direct correlation to petiole height
in that lower levels produce longer petioles. Could this work the other way
around? If I were to put a bright light just above the new sprout as it
emerged
and kept it close to the growing leaf, would that induce it to produce a
shorter
petiole? (All this assumes I can't put it out in full bright sunlight and I
keep
the light source just far enough away to avoid burning the leaf)
