vulgarisI don`t
grow Dracunclus, but I was gived a pea-sized bulbil of wild-collected
Helicodiceros, a related Aroid from the same region, and with little hope of
it`s survival I potted it up. It has THRIVED for me during
the cooler months for the last two years, and when it goes dormant in late
spring-early summer I just put it in its pot in a dry area of my Florida
room, and it stays alive till the cool 'winter', emerging in around mid-Jan.
when watered and put out on the bench. It has not bloomed
as yet, but the beautiful, twisted and divided leaves are worth the wait.
Hope this helps.
