I live on Long Island in what's supposed to be 7a but seems to be a tad colder.
I try to bring my konjacs in every year because by giving them an earlier start than they'd do outside, I get larger plants (or at least I tell myself that I do). Despite that, I always seem to miss a few tubers or offsets outside. For the past 3 years, I've found konjacs coming up all over the place in the yard; perhaps spread by the rototiller.
Anyway, they do seem to be reliably hardy here on LI.
