Damn - I was looking forward to some extra space to put plants while this rested.

Yay - Everythings normal!

The soil I have them in is very well aerated, lots of sand in the mix, so far, these guys (and the Titanum seed I bought) have been no trouble at all!

Thanks for the reply!

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!
