Hello,

I've been lurking for a while and greatly benefitting from everyone's
experience on this website.

I have several plants that I placed outdoors early in June in Central Massachusetts
when we first had some 75F days/50F nights.
The plants I'm growing (forgive any typos:)
Saurotum venosum
Amorphophallus konjac, bulbifer, odoratus
I had some plants begin some roots around the shoot but then they got hit with a 38-40F
night temp. that seems to have induced a dormancy again.
Will these plants snap out of it? The Konjac and bulbifer appear to have lengthened its growing shoot infintesimally
so not sure if I'm imagining it (Note: A. konjac bloomed in February).

Is it best to leave them outside in 80F temps or is there something I should try to get them growing?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Kirk Martin
