  deep pots for Amorphophallus

You should be wary of narrow deep pots. I have noticed that the tubers
tend to get necrotic black bloches the further they are from gas
exchange. I have drilled air holes (screened in for media containment)
which seems to reduce the problem. Those long tuber Anorphophallus are
worth the extra effort. banta
