  RE: [Aroid-l] Amorphophallus tuber planting depth

Hello Michael, my flower also bent over but not till after the flower was totally spent. I blamed it on the really strong winds we had. Mine is outside. After the leaf came up however, it is now winter and get nights down into the low 50's. In there the leaf also bent over but fortuantely it had some support, so it did not bend and totally damaged it. I propped it up and added some soil to the pot. I wrote Dr. Hetterscheid to ask about the problem. I have also gotten a letter from Bryan, and his did the same thing. I was wondering it the plants possible either grew in dense underbrush and used that for support or just naturally grew deeply, more so than most, needing the petiole to have more support from soil. I am hoping that Wilbert can shed some light on this.
