Krzysztof and gang:

Heya, thanks for the response. Actually, I think I pulled the leaf off sort
of my Konjac on accident trying to repot it, but I must admit that what I
saw looked somewhat soft and bruised looking so I was a bit concerned about
it. Now, what I *did* do intentionally, was rip off that softish outer
layer to se what was underneath and there's a healthy pink and green tip
poking up from the tuber, so I am feeling better about it. I have it in the
pot so that the sprout-y thing sticks up out of the dirt so that it can
keep dry a couple days . I really can't wait to see that little guy grow. I
really wondoer both how big it will be when it leafs out and when it is
mature. right not the tuber is about two inches across.

On the dracontiums, since I had to wait a couple days after getting the
tubercles, I put them in a paper towel and put a little water on it and let
it sit overnight. (I did this twice) and each time it was pretty much dry
by morning, but at least on one species a few of the tubercles seem a bit
softer and mushyish, and I was surprised by this, because this could not be
any worse for them than a couple days with rain in nature. Is this normal
for these tubercles? Most of the rest were just fine when I planted them
last night. Do these have a dormancy period like Amorphs? Or should I
expect something soon? Anyway, take care everyone!
