  non-aroid question: Manihot
From: Lester Kallus <lkallus at earthlink.net> on 1999.03.04 at 22:26:19(3100)
One of my favorite plants has always been a Manihot esculenta variegata
(the variegated tapioca plant). I grew three last summer and watched them
flourish in our hot summer. The wait for a warm house during my fall
construction has unfortunately done them in. The tops died and then dried.

Now that my greenhouse is 95% inhabitable, I've started transporting some
plants there. I found the Manihot pot and dug up the dried plant to see
some tubers which appear viable.

Does anyone out there have any knowledge about what I can do to re-initiate
growth? Can it be done? Can I get more than one plant out of this? I
know I can replace it for $15-$20 but the sticker shock of my renovations
has me looking for alternatives.
