  [Aroid-l] Amorphophallus Hewitii Dormancy
From: Neil Gordon neil at ng23.abelgratis.co.uk> on 2005.08.23 at 13:11:04(13302)
Hi, I have 2 A. Hewitii plants that I planted as seed. After a year of
growth one of those plants has gone dormant, and the other is in the
process of going dormant.

Now, the first plant has been dormant for about 3-4 weeks, and has now
decided to grow another shoot, and start growing again!

Is this normal for these plants to have such a short dormancy period?
I thought that it should have been about 3-4 months, not weeks!! or is
it as youngsters, these guys try to grow as much as they can in as
short a period as possible?
