Title: Re: [Aroid-l] Konjac is coming!
Dear Skip,

I think that most of our members will agree that what you are seeing is a blooming stalk and with proper support, the corm can be completely dry and at ambient temperature and it will bloom as normal.  Only after the bloom has finished and the stalk withered will the corm want to put out roots (they’ll sprout from around the top) and grow.  It’s only then that you’ll want to plant the comb, hopefully in it’s final position for the year.  When the flower stalk comes off, you see a small, pink sprout underneath, which will be the leaf stalk to come.  Other members may have slightly different techniques, but this has always worked for me.

Good Luck and Hold Your Nose!

  Hello. I recently purchased a very large Konjac. It’s about 18” across. I have it in a nice, dry box near a window. Well it’s starting to shoot! The growth is about 9 inches right now.
  I live in Northern CA and right now it’s wet and cold. There is no way I’m potting this now and putting it out. So, what should I do with it? Should I can pot it now and keep it inside or should I just leave it in the box and watch the magic?

  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
