>From my experience here in Wisconsin, A. konjac tubers break dormancy
"whenever they feel like it"   4 weeks is not unusual, and if they bloomed
the previous year, I've even had them skip a year of vegitative growth.  As

My Amorphophallus konjac is within a day or so of releasing its exotic perfume.
