  Re: [Aroid-l] Helicodiceros fruit

Hello Peter!
Oddly enough, my most successful Helicodiceros are the ones that I pay
the least attention to. The ones that I slave over hardly ever do very well,
but the ones in the ground seem to thrive.
I plant offset corms in my native heavy clay soil amended with a little
woody potting soil. I find the best plants are the ones planted on the South
sides of tree trunks - lots of winter sun, then shade in the spring and
early summer. They get drenched in our winter rainy season, then get normal
garden water with a sprinkler about weekly after that. I try to let them go
a bit dry during the summer dormancy period, but otherwise I don't fret over
them too much.
