Dear Mike,

Sorry for the tardy reply---
The peduncles will dry up and eventually drop off, a new leaf will be produced and maybe a couple others over the summer growing season, during which you should apply water, fert., etc. At the end of their growing season the final leaf will turn yellow, wilt and fall off. When the leaf begins to turn yellow stop watering, let the soil dry out. When tolally dry, turn the pot out, retreive the tuber, and store in p/bag or panty-hose in a cool place w/ a little fungicide. Re-pot in late spring when all threats of frost are passed. This is just basic info.

Good Growing.


I have a few A. bulbifer that just finished flowering, and I'm not
sure how to care for them now.
The flowers have died back, and the peduncles are slowly drying up.
Should I pinch off or cut off the growth, or will it eventually
totally dry up and separate?  If I should remove it, should I do it
right at the top of the tuber?

Also, I want to repot these corms -- is now the right time, or should
I wait longer?

Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can give.<
