They are indeed small and should be small. Depending on how long they ahve
been resting (say 3-4 months max) you might want to put them in soil, keep
moderately moist and they'll emerge. The mature tuber/rhizome doesn't get
any bigger than some 1.5 - 2 cm and produces masses of these tiny offsets,
once you have it well-esteblished. If you are a member of the IAS you could
have noticed this species in Aroideana 29 (2006) on pages 65 - 67.
