With mine, as the plant begins to die down, I just snap it off and plant it.

My young bulbifers, bulbils year before last, have just died back. They
have not produced bulbils themselves. My older bigger bulbifers are just
now emerging. If I extrapolate backward in time, I figure that they must
have begun emerging from their corms at just about the time Wilbert so
agreeably ordered them to arise.

Still no sign of konjac, though...

Clear skies,
