  Re: [Aroid-l] Amorphophallus tuber planting depth
From: Ken Mosher ken at spatulacity.com> on 2005.01.02 at 19:14:26(12528)
It's been my own personal observation with plants in general that they
don't need to be planted more deeply to make them stand up. Another inch or
few of soil won't make any difference.

I think that either 1) it is a certain plant's natural characteristic to
flop over, or 2) some other growing condition is not right.

I think that when my Amorphophallus sp nova mahajanga break dormancy I will
provide the leaf with some support. How much sun are others giving this
plant (and where are you)? How much would it get in habitat?
