[Aroid-l] Dormancy of Amorphophallus from Madagascar
From: aroidgrower at gmail.com (John L) on 2008.05.24 at 04:59:08(17609)|
I have been fortunate enough to purchase more tubers recently from a seller
and grower of plants from south africa and Madagascar.
One of the recommendations of the seller of these tubers on eBay is to
immediately pot it and water it.
I believe that this grower/seller is thinking of these tubers in terms of
the other plants from that part of the world that generally emerge from
dormancy at the beginning of the wet season, even if that wet season is
My experience with the Amorphophallus tubers from Madagascar is that they|
generally don't emerge from dormancy until our late Summer to late Fall here
in the Northern hemisphere. I have a few that do grow during my springtime
but this particular tuber is showing no signs of breaking dormancy now and
my biggest concern is rotting. It is showing signs of mold and I have
increased air flow around the tuber and have treated it with cinnamon, so
all seems well for now.
Does anybody have any experiences to share?
