Hi, Marek,

What zone are you?  I am in zone 7B and have had mine in the ground for over 25 years.  Our coldest winters during that time were 2 degrees Farenheit, but usually it is only in the twenties some of the time and thirties most of the time.  It gets colder than that in their native lands.  Mine are planted about 6" deep in well-drained soil.

Subject: [Aroid-l] strange behavior of Dracunculus vulgaris

I have 2 tubers of this plant bough from different sellers and...
They wake up in november/october, bloom in jan/feb and shortly after they go dormant. I tried to store them in a frigde during winter (they're not hardy in my area). Now they lie in a bathroom and nothing can make them to grow in the summer. What to do? More in the page:
