RES: Dracontium amazonense going dormant?
I keep all my Dracontiuns (including D. amazonense) warm and wet
when dormant. I only bury the tubers when I think it is needed to repot them. I
have had zero losses for more than 15 years doing this. The only Dracontium I
treat different is D. margaretae, which is aquatic and need to be taken out of
the water bowl during dormancy (but still kept warm and wet).
Very best wishes,

I ahve a
Dracontium amazonense going dormant now. Ive kept is wet and warmer then
outside. It started by slowly loosing leaves. finally only one was left and
the last one stayed there for about another month. now it is starting to
turn yellow and the stem is softening like the others did before falling
I also have several offsets in the pot. Non of the offsets ever sprouted
but the did grow roots and get larger in size. After checking the offsets,
I see that they are dormant also because their roots are gone. I have
fertilized them the whole time theyve been growing, almost 2 years now.
Can anyone tell me what is going on here? are they going to sleep or
something else? If they are resting, how long will they rest?how should I
