  Re: [aroid-l] refrigerating tubers

I find the flowering stalk to be 'less resistant' to being held dormant
by cold on konjac and if it wants to go it goes. I would not risk
stopping it by going any colder than 44 or so. I once stored a big
konjac in a refrigerator at 38F dry and it received enough cold injury
to have the tuber rot. Remember that the flower stalk must preceed the
leaf and if you are to get the leaf out in time to renew the tuber
stalling the flowering until late spring would not result in good
vegetative growth unless you have a greenhouse or live down south.
