Dear Jerry,

Welcome to aroid-l!
I`m by no means an expert on the growing of the 'voodoo lily', but since it
is an aroid that does go dormant, I can offer the following
tips/suggestions. It will 'go down' into dormancy once it gets cold enough
where you live, and once the leaves start to turn yellow, cut way back then
stop on the watering, and once all the leaves are withered and brown, remove
the corm from the soil and store in a paper bag in a cool place, say on a
garage shelf. Next spring, once W. Cen. Florida begins to warm up, the
tuber must be checked regularly for signs of new growth, it will begin to
put out either a bloom or new plant growth, and should be potted out at this
time, start watering slowly at first, once the new plant has rooted in,
begin a system of regular light fertilization. Enjoy!
Good luck, and
GOOD GROWING!

Is this Dracunculus vulgaris we're talking about?
Here in Canby, OR zone 7-8 I leave mine planted in the
ground year-round. It has grown, bloomed
successfully, multiplied, and smelled up the
neighborhood (slightly) for more than 20 years. I
never dig it up except to divide clumps and sell some
of the tubers.

Dracunculus vulgaris here in Norfolk, VA, stays in the ground year round.
They are in shade among small transplanted dogwood trees. Blooms like a
trooper. For better or worse, when the first one was planted right next to
the fromt door- big mistake though the stench is fortunately short lived!
Oldest one was almost 4' tall this year. A real show stopper though appeals
to a limited audience!
