  Typhonium horsfieldi

Howdy!

What is the best way to store dormant T. horsfieldi tubers? Dry or in soil?
If in soil, should I keep the pots on a bed of moist sand?

Thanks!
Christopher

I don't know if I wrote back about this or not.... the tubers can be stored dry from my experience. On the other hand, they obviously have lots of very small offsets, and can handle water because I had them come back up again in pots that kept being watered.... so in the end, take your pick. They seem quite resilient.
