Dear Mike,

Sorry for the tardy reply---
The peduncles will dry up and eventually drop off, a new leaf will be
produced and maybe a couple others over the summer growing season, during
which you should apply water, fert., etc. At the end of their growing
season the final leaf will turn yellow, wilt and fall off. When the leaf
begins to turn yellow stop watering, let the soil dry out. When tolally
dry, turn the pot out, retreive the tuber, and store in p/bag or panty-hose
in a cool place w/ a little fungicide. Re-pot in late spring when all
threats of frost are passed. This is just basic info.

Good Growing.

Julius
