My motto is, if you find anything resembling a tuber/corm/whatever, save 
it, unless of course it is mush.

While unpotting tubers this past weekend I noted a number of phalloids 
just waking up after only two months or dormancy. So back on the benches 
these plants went. My concern at this point is that our "cool" zone 10b 
weather may force some of these to go dormant again with little or no 
tuber left. Our weather here, until the past several days has been 
exceptionally warm, 78F or higher and in low 70s at night, and this may 
have stimulated some of this activity. But it is finally cooling off the 
last day or so dropping into the 50s at night.

One week ago one A. titanum decided to wake up after being dormant for 10 
weeks. Not wanting to disturb the tuber I repotted it and the entire mass 
of medium around it into a 30 gallon container. Dreams of an 
inflorescence persist!

The Urospathas are now beginning to flower again. The cooler weather 
seems to stimulate inflorescence production in this genus. Will be out 
there with the paint brush this weekend hoping to stimulate some 
reproductive activity.
