RE: A.lewallei


Dear MJ,

Turning green is the normal reaction of lewallei tubers when exposed to
light. Some other species trun purple, or brown or grey. 

When the main tubers show desiccation, you better put them in soil
indeed. It surprises me though since lewallei is a real tough cookie!

Cheers,
Wilbert
