Question regarding removing offsets from Amorphophallus corms

Posted by MadAboutCPs Aust (My Page) on

What is the best way to remove offsets from species such as paeonifolius during dormancy? I accidentally broke an offset from the parent corm. Then i treated it with a fungicide called 'Mancozeb' as it was all I had at the time as to prevent infection. Anyone else had success with this product?
Some sites say severe, others mention breaking. Do they mean use a knife to perform a clean cut or can you just break them off? I would assume that the broken cuts heal themselves. Are these open woulnds prone to infection or am I able to plant it now?

if they look as if they will remove easily, then you probably can. otherwise what another season before doing it. offsets can be a little sensitive and may dessicate because they are so small.
