RE: [Aroid-l] Cinnamon Fungicide

I have a large collection of Dormant Amorphophallus tubers. Should most of them be kept “bone dry” until they show signs of new growth?  When the new growth begins, before roots appear, should they still be kept bone dry?  Or, should the soil always be kept misted?  I know there are exceptions and someday I will know which they are, but until that happens, I could use some general information.  Thanks for your help!   Ron  Florida

I've used nothing but for a while now, and have never lost a tuber to fungal problems after treatment.  As an added bonus, it makes the area where the tubers are stored smell delightful.
