Amorphophallus Bulbifer - growing a bulbil

araceaeloverSeptember 16, 2007

Has anybody ever grown a bulbil from a Bulbifer leaf before?

I won an ebay auction, the seller not only sent an extra tuber but also a bulbil about as big around as a dime.

The tubers are dormant now. Should I treat the bulbil as a dormant tuber that needs to be stored in soil, or treat it as a tuber that should be stored dry out of soil?

Yep, just as easy as a normal tuber.....store it in peat or something as these tiny guys are more likely to dessicate :o) Dan

Thanks Dan!

I have it planted in soil now, but it is at the surface, and I can see the top of the bulbil at soil level. I think I will leave it this way and just check the soil moisture every now and then.
