New here, having trouble with amorph. konjac

I have read some other threads but nothing exactly like the situation I have. I bought my first Amorph. Konjac from Home Depot. It was healthy for a month or so, I was keeping it indoors in a south facing window. I would let the top of the soil dry out before watering. I noticed some of the leaves turning a bright yellow so I moved it out onto my covered porch. It has been in steady decline and this morning I noticed the stalk had started to rot. I cut the stalk off and dug up the bulb (which is very small, maybe 3 inches or so in diameter) . I pulled the remainder of the stalk free from the bulb and noticed what appear to be small sprouts (they were growing under a hollow dome in the base of the stalk) it also has some healthy roots. The bulb feels soft though as if its rotting and the soil was very damp around the bulb. I have it out drying. Any suggestions as to if it will survive and what if anything I can do to help the situation. Thank You

Welcome, Wednesday. I am growing for the first time, myself, but someone here will help you.

I can barely believe you bought it at Home Depot, but then I, myself, have bought several alocasias/colocasias from HD or Lowe's, so that' why I check them out (usually late summer) to see if they have any goodies. What a catch!

As Bonbon mentions, someone will respond. There are a lot of amorph nuts on this forum (I mean that lovingly, guys).
