	In my Zone 5 garden in Kansas city, T. giganteum is THE 
LATEST aroid to emerge. Just when I have given up and realized it 
finally croaked last winter it pops up in July or August!! I never 
even see it is spring and early summer. By the time it finally 
emerges, we have had weeks of 100F plus. Of course you didn't mention 
where you live or climate info.

	It has very shallow tubers and these seems to go 'up and 
down' in the soil over the year. After blooming new small round 
tubers roll away from the parent plant and then seem to disappear 
until next July. If I don't catch a few tubers in fall, I can rarely 
find any to move them to a new location.

	I still haven't convinced myself if it does best in sun, 
shade or half way there.

	No clue		Jim W.
