Question on Tacca rhizome

Posted by Starry_Night z 5 (My Page) on

I have a question about potting, division and possibly growing semi hydro for Taccas.
Have a couple rhizomes arriving soon? How best to treat these. I was suprized that they can be divided via rhizome and would love any and all info.
I am also considering trying to grow one via semi hydroponics. They are arriving supposedly blooming sized.
This is a first time potting up a rhizome, what would be recommended depth?
I have grown Tacca chantreiri and Tacca integrifolia prior and have grown them in a variety of mixes. The last one I had a couple of years ago I lost to a sever fungus gnat infestation and rot.
