Dear Tsuh Yang,
This has happened to me as well, with a large konjac
tuber that grew a leaf over 5 feet tall and probably
3.5inches in diameter (152 cm and approx 9cm). I dug
up the tuber in fall and ....nothing. Mine was grown
in the ground. At the time I thought it had put all
its energy into putting up a large leaf, and didn't
have time after that to get carbohydrates or whatever
built up to form a new tuber- needed a longer growing
period. I don't know- it was very strange.
