Dear Clarence Waldron,
Dear Tsuh Yang,
Thanks for your replies!
Letting the Amorphs going their (natural) way and giving them favourable
conditions is definitely a good way to get them out of dormancy.
My point was rather the one Tsuh Yang mentioned. What to do with the ones which
should (normally) start to grow but won't.
I remember,too, that Wilbert H. and S. Ittenbach mentionend in their article
on the cultivation of Amorphs that offsets sometimes refuse to start growing for
years and then start (if they don't die, finally).
So the question is more precise, what to do with tubers and esp. offsets that
are due to grow in a normal cycle of dormancy and growing but won't.
I thought that growth regulators (ethelene or maybe cytokinines) might be worth
Is there anything known in aroids in this respect?
Any comments wolcome!
