Re: Cultivation of Taccarum

Agreed that keeping it in its pot when dormant is a good idea, as with all geophytes. But Taccarum should be kept DRY when dormant. This is true for probably most but not all tuberous aroids.

Your problem is taking it out of the soil, it needs to be kept in the pot and moist at all times, also needs to be outside not in a window.

Hello,
 
I've had Taccarum weddellianum since 2005, every year it produces a leaf and usually a "baby" tuber.
But... it doesn't grow in size almost at all, although the tuber very slowly increases, the leaf is 20-30 cm tall every year.
I use regular pot soil, and the plant is fertilized with natural biohumus.
It grows in a southern window.
When it's dormant I store it without soil in the normal room temperature.
 
What do I do wrong? What should I do to make it grow larger?
Here are photos of my plant:
 
Please help,
Marek
