  Amorph. lewelii dormancy
From: bonaventure at optonline.net on 2005.01.04 at 00:44:48(12540)
This has resprouted every summer for me, but as it has not increased greatly in size compared to my other Amorph acquisitions, I fear that perhaps I should not keep it completely dry like the others at this time.
Any advice?

Am. lewallei can be kept totally dry during dormancy. I don't know why it
doesn;t get bigger. Maybe try a more nutritious soil or fertilise more
often. It is a beast and grows big very easily here.

Do you fertilize your plants? I am told that is the key for tuber growth.
I am personally feeding 15-30-15 to my plants every two weeks, though many
say you can be more aggressive and feed them more.
