  Flowering in konjac
From: Michael Marcotrigiano <marcotrigiano at pssci.umass.edu> on 1999.04.09 at 17:20:22(3254)
Can any one tell me. Will a A.konjac survive if it is left to flower while
dry or unpotted and then potted later to induce the leaf to come out? In
other words is the flower feeding off the tuber without getting any water or
nutrients from soil? I've never dug up a flowering one to see what is going
on. Has anyone else?

Also, does any one know if the flower bud is intitiated and resting from the
previous season or is it formed during the long dormant phase? Wilbert?
