  Temps for storing A. Konjac
From: chris bob handspeakboy at yahoo.com> on 2003.11.04 at 20:21:53(10774)
I have heard several different temperature ranges for storing Konjac .. Some say storing at room temps are fine others say they must have a cold dormancy ..

I am wondering if I were to keep Konjac at room temp say 70-72F Would this have any adverse affects ? possibly causing it to come out of dormancy before the winter is over or decreasing the size of next years growth .

I am also wondering if giving it a cold dormancy at around 40F would be iether beneficial, not needed ..or harmful

All Info appreciated

Hi,Chris Bob , just keep the corms frost free and dry. Start into growth early spring, should have no problems. Colin. chris bob wrote:
