Question regarding removing offsets from Amorphophallus corms

MadAboutCPs(Aust)May 23, 2005


What is the best way to remove offsets from species such as paeonifolius during dormancy? I accidentally broke an offset from the parent corm. Then i treated it with a fungicide called 'Mancozeb' as it was all I had at the time as to prevent infection. Anyone else had success with this product?

Some sites say severe, others mention breaking. Do they mean use a knife to perform a clean cut or can you just break them off? I would assume that the broken cuts heal themselves. Are these open woulnds prone to infection or am I able to plant it now?



Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

if they look as if they will remove easily, then you probably can. otherwise what another season before doing it. offsets can be a little sensitive and may dessicate because they are so small.
