Amorphophallus konjac

Amorphophallus konjac

I always worry about my Amorphophallus over winter. I have two big ones and some babies in pots.

I bring them indoors in winter but then have to be really careful not to overwater. In spring they take such an age to come back that the temptation is always to give them more water, at risk of rotting them.

Well, there's no sign of emergence from mine yet, however... Two of the pots have roots peeking out the top. Perhaps I should have repotted them. In any case, they are alive.
