Amorphophallus dormant in july.
Hello. I got 2 amorphophallus (paeoniifolius and bulbifer) for christmas because my mom knew they were one of my favorite plants. I thought I knew how to take care of them already. They supposedly came from florida. They sat dormantly occasionally misted with water until the bulbifer grew about 2 inch stub. I planted the bulbifer and while I was on vacation for 3 weeks, it bloomed and I didnt get a chance to pollinate it which made me very sad. That was in june. I thought that it would soon grow a leaf, but it still hasn't. The paeoniifolius sat longer until a couple weeks ago it had about 1 inch stub and so I planted that one too and it hasn't emerged yet. I am a little bit worried because in a few months here in california it will be like 50 degrees at night and I don't want them to just have started growing then. I planted both of them in a mix of something like 1 part commercial compost, 1 part miracle grow something dirt, and 1 part perlite, the paeoniifolius had more perlite because I heard they need more drainage than some others. I could potentially grow them in a window sill inside my house if they grow in the middle of the winter. ( could that happen if they were actually from the southern hemisphere and not florida?). I haven't been watering them quite too much because I don't know how easily they will rot. I can dig them up if people think that they don't have roots I could damage. What should I do? Leave them? Water or not? Dig them up?
