Hello Friends,

Remember, A. konjac is a widely CULTIVATED species, so there are MANY vars.
of this, and one would expect to find different 'going dormant' times on
plants collected in different countries/zones.   Maybe 'Lord Phallus' would
have a more educated comment on this!?

I know it came from Victoria..... so it is probably what you are talking
about.  However..... why does this form die down far earlier than the other
A. konjac that I have?  Someone in Queensland told me that theirs has done
the same thing as mine....and I think they mentioned Collector's Corner.

Are there specific clones of A. konjac that die down before others? I would
say we're talking about a month before by the look of it too.  There are no
signs of even a little yellowing on the A. konjac that I got from an Aroid
collector (from this list) here in Canberra, so I would have thought it was
at least something slightly different?
