  [Aroid-l] Forced Dormancy Question
From: "Allan Tetzlaff" <atetzlaff at rogers.com> on 2007.01.07 at 17:28:58(15054)
I have bulbs of Typhonium venosum and I keep them
in the fridge during the winter so they don't start growing too soon in the
spring (the suggestion of the woman I purchased them from). I was
wondering if anyone has experience with any of the Amorphophallus species in
using this type of method to shift the growing season? Eg. My A.
haematospadix always grow during the winter and rest during the summer.
Though they're not big, they do take up space.... same issue for
paeoniifolius which are currently getting large. If they grow outside in
the summer that solves a few important issues. Any tips would be
appreciated. I'm not concerned about konjac as it seems to match our
season fairly well.
