Yep, this is normal. Most species from Borneo have VERY short resting
periods during which the tubers must NEVER dry out!!! Also they appreciate a
well-aerated (is that a word??) soil and LOTS of water!!!!!!! Ask Peter
Boyce, he has first-hand experience and I believe him since the days I am
doing this too, after having had trouble with these bast....errrr, difficult
plants for years!
