Amorphophallus problem

markpajakJuly 5, 2009


I recently received an apple sized A.paeoniifolius tuber that was in the process of producing a leaf but the leaf got damaged and rotted off once planted. The bulb seems ok and is still growing roots. I have scraped of all of the soft tissue. Will it be able to produce another leaf? How should it be treated?

Here is a link that might be useful: Picture of plant before rot set in

Not sure since I'm new to growing these but to me it looks like some of those are too wet. They need well drained soil mix. I have 4 Konjacs, 2 golf ball sized ones and 2 7", 4+ pounders.
