  [Aroid-l] Pycnospatha arietina - a problem
From: "Marek Argent" <abri1973 at wp.pl> on 2008.12.22 at 02:32:51(18791)

Hi all,

Last year I bought one tuber, it produced a leaf and fell into dormancy as it should (I cultivated it at home).

This year it hasn't put any leaf or roots. Yesterday I dug it from the pot and I still don't know if it is alive or not.

I scratched it a little - it was cream beige inside and seemed solid.

I broke the tip where the leaf should grow from and it was wet.

How to check if it is not rotten? What to do with the tuber?

I stored it during dormancy also in the room temperature.

Here are 2 photos, I can do better images if neccesary (macro closeups).

Please help me
