Be patient

Yesterday, Amorphophallus curvistylis sent up a shoot after having been 
asleep for 16 months (it went dormant on August 12, 1997).  With new
members joining the list, it seems worth mentioning that, when growing
some aroids, patience is not only a virtue--it is essential!

A small A. odoratus tuber has also just emerged.  Others planted last
spring were up in a few weeks, grew, and have gone dormant while
"sleepyhead" has just decided to wake up.  Then their was the
Amorphophallus konjac that bloomed in February 1997 and promptly went
dormant for 13 months finally sending up a leaf at the end of April 1998
(two others that bloomed the same year rested for just a couple of
months before sending up leaves).

So then just a reminder--be patient, and don't give up and throw it out
until you are sure it is dead (the same advice Wilbert gave in Aroideana
19, p.24).
