Amorph. Koratensis Question

araceaeloverSeptember 21, 2007

I have an A. Koratensis that is just breaking dormancy. The new petiole is just emerging from the soil now.

I do not know much about this species.

The tuber was approx. 5 inches around, and sat about 3-4 inches high.

I had hoped that it would flower given its size.

Does A. Koratnnsis flower at this size?

Do they flower reliably every year or do they take a year or more off after flowering?

I aquired this tuber about 2 months ago and don't know if it flowered yet.

It likely flowered in the spring and now you got stuck with the silly plant growing all winter......either that or simply do not allow it to grow, but if it is nicely up with roots you probably do not want to piss it off now....the reason I cut back so much on my Amorphs....this nonsense gets old after 10 years or so :o) Dan
