  shipping corms and cold weather
From: ken at spatulacity.com on 2003.12.08 at 16:08:43(10877)
For those list members who either ship from a place with cold winters, or if
you ship to cold locations, how do you handle shipping Amorphophallus corms
in winter?

Hi Ken: I never ship in winter. I don't see the point since the
'customer' must wait until dormancy breaks anyway. If you must I have
received plants on ebay with 'heatpacks' in them but I can't give you
advise on where to buy them. They are either these chemical heat
compounds that last a day or two or some other kind of heat retaining
materials. I can tell you that a few days at 30F can give you chilling
injury in konjac corms if not death.
