  Re: [aroid-l] hibernation time

Hi all, I was wondering if I could ask a slightly different question with
regard to hibermation, i.e., how might I get things started growing more
quickly in the spring? For the most part, my konjac, bulbifer and henryi
are no big problem, but some of my larger paeoniifolius don't get started
until July and then go dormant here in zone 6a (western PA) at the end of
September or early October (we've already had our first hard frost this
year) and so don't have a chance to reabsorb all of last years tuber. I
should say that I do not have a greenhouse and grow all of my Amorphs in
pots. So, I was wondering how I might get them out of dormancy earlier in
the spring? Could you set them on a large heat mat for seed starting and
then once they start to sprout put them in their pots and off they go. I
know it seems an odd request, but any help would be appreciated. Best
