Probably koratensis based on the short spathe limb but it's really hard to tell if it doesn't open up well.? This group doesn't flower very well left out of the ground as the bud develops.? Some of the species like konjac, longituberosus and a bunch of other things will flower just as well sitting in a box as being planted but it's been my experience that koratensis and paeoniifollis will brown out.? There don't appear to be any offsets on this corm and that's also consistent with koratensis.? It does offset but produces fewer than the clones of paeoniifolius I have and not often on a small corm.

Hello Thom,

looking at the bulb, it might be Am. koratensis. Concerning the flower, I
cannot help you.

best regards!

Hi Ron, Thanks for the info... i cut the flower off (since it was
only browning out) and opened it up
so if it is a koratensis, at what point do you put it in soil and at
what level? it seems to me that since the spathe limb is so short on
this species, you would plant it rather shallow....but shouldn't it
be planted deeper when the leaf starts to form, so the root system
can support the leaf?
