My seed raised Synandrospadx vermitoxicus, has performed well and even
bloomed for me. Last year it didn?t bloom, but looked otherwise healthy.
This year, however, there are 3 large and one small growing point, leading
me to believe that the bulb has split. See attached picture. It will be
going dormant for me in a few weeks, and I have just kept it potted, kept
very dry and on the cool side (50-60F/10-16C).

Is this ?normal? behavior as it is for some of the other tuberous species?
Should the plant be divided and if so, is now or next spring the best time?

Thanks a lot, Julius. That was most helpful.

Hi Don,
I don't know about flowering and splitting tubers, but I store mine dry too. It will start to sprout in the spring long before it starts to grow though, lost a few by watering too early.
