Incidental Amorphophallus titanum cutting advice
My two A. titanum just arrived a couple of weeks ago and the sudden cold is turning them to a quick dormancy. One of them crumpled halfway down the petiole, because the weakened tissue couldn't support the leaf D:
At the point of the fold, the tissue had died a little bit, so there was no living tissue connecting the top half of the leaf to the rest of the petiole and tuber.
The top half was still green, pretty tough and full of 'juice', so I figured it'd be a huge shame to let all those nutrients go to waste.
Let me know if this was the right thing to do:
1- I cleaned the dead tissue off the lower half, and it's now a clean, dry scab.
2- I cut the dead tissue off the top half, exposing the 'juicy' tissue.
3 - I dunked the juicy end into a sachet of rooting hormone (powder).
4 - I put the powdered end back into the coir/sphag mix.
Will this produce a new tuber?
