Holy crap! konjac really grew!
The 4 pound Amorph Konjac I posted in the gallery was dug out today. It's now 13 pounds! It was 7 inches across this spring, now 11 1/2"! WOW! Photos soon. She needs to dry off a little. This is my first year growing these.
With that said, I experimented. I had 2, 4 pounders the same size. The one I just mentioned was kept out in the open and got a lot of rain, etc. The other was kept under cover and got only watered by me. The one under cover maybe grew an inch bigger. No babies. The big one grew no babies either.
I also planted 2 nickle sized corms this spring and they are now tennis ball sized. One made 3 babies, the other none. Grown under cover.
Any insight appreciated! REALLY fun plants!
