Re: [aroid-l] titanum corm storage

Hi Peter,

Perhaps a few comments on how to store these would be appreciated by several
of us here who have not grown these Bornean species previously.  Do you
leave them in their standard potting mix and occasionally water even when
dormant??  Do you allow the potting mix to dry or do you water as soon as it
is barely moist??  Any help is greatly appreciated!!
