  Amorphophallus Question
From: "MJ Hatfield" mjhatfield at oneota.org> on 2001.03.09 at 14:31:33(6026)
Most of my Amorphophallus are not blooming size so the only real experience
I have had is with A. konjac. However, I do believe some other species might
be large enough to bloom this year.
When I see new growth beginning, I can't tell is it is going to be a
petiole/leaf or a flower so I have potted them. I have also been watering
them and they are growing. However, my konjacs are never in soil when they
bloom so I never water them.
How should I treat these other species (right now A. krausei, A. odoratus,
and A.unknown-a species that seems to be more common than it once was)? Is
there a rule of thumb for all the species?
After I pot them and the growth emerges from the soil, do I water them?
