Dragon Arum/Dracunculus Help
I bought a young healthy plant and planted it on the south side of my house in sandy, well drained soil and laid down mulch around it. It gets full sun and after it got established I watered less frequently and it seemed to be thriving with young healthy leaves and new sprouts off the stem.
Then last Sunday heavy rains came to Florida. And I mean heavy. It was a deluge of rain for half a day. Yesterday I checked the plant and the leaves were yellowing and the stem of the plant seemed hollow and soft when I touched it. Not good.
I assume this is from too much water. Is it too late to transplant the arum a few feet away so it's under the roof overhang of the house? That should keep most of the rain away, not sure why I didn't do this the first time. On a side note I did fertilize the arum yesterday with a small amount of well balanced fertilizer, but today nearly all the leaves are yellow, brittle, and some will probably be falling off the plant. Is it possible to prune the shoots with the yellow leaves?
Thanks for your help. This is my first time growing this.
