I have some questions about Amorphophallus.

A. odoratus - In Aroideana, Vol 19, there are no cultivation notes.
Should the dormant tuber be stored dry as with A. yunnanensis?

A. opertus (and other species that should be stored in the soil) - I
continue to have trouble determining how dry or damp the soil should be
when these species are dormant. Dry or a minimal  moisture? If they
should have minimal moisture, how do you determine "minimal"?

When making cuttings of Amorphophallus, the vegetative growth eventually
rots and a small tuber forms. How should that very small/tiny tuber be
stored? Do I wait for it to begin vegetative growth before potting it
and watering it?
