  Re: Amorph Konjac

We store konjac dry in the 45F cooler or dry in it's pot. No added
moisture. Our experience is that bringing them into a warm room and waiting
for the pink sprout to come up is a better guarantee against rotting. I
would suggest digging the konjac up and leaving it in a warm room until you
see if wants to sprout. I pot mine very shallow with the sprout right at
the surface. Corms (yes I think Amorphophallus are corms not tubers but no
one has an opinion to my listserv query so they have contractile roots that
bring them down deeper as needed. This is just my experience - others may
have other opinions. I've grown over 2,000 konjacs last year and none of
them rotted.
