  Re: Typhonium diversifolium

The first year I planted my typhonium (Zone 6) I was given no cultural
information. I plunked it in the ground covered about 2" with soil, and a
week later the thing was 4' (1.5 m) tall! Having had no cultrual
information (I even lost the name) I left it in the ground all winter.
Returning to the nursery where purchased next spring, I found out what it
was (everyone who saw it immediately wanted one) and bought 2 more bulbs.
That was all they had in stock. I planted the new ones in April in the same
general area as previously. They both came up (no "flowers") within a week.
Much to my astonishment, June 20, the original one put up a leaf stalk (no
spathe). It stayed with me until August. The replacements stayed until
July. Playing it safe, I dug up 2 bulbs (all I could find) and stored them
over the winter. I replanted them outside (new areas) in early April.
Keeping my fingers crossed that they will prove hardy and multiply...
