Re: Pinellia cordata "tuberlets"


Don,

One of the things that distinguishes Pinellia from other aroids like
Arisaema is the production of viable tuberlets in the leaf petioles. It
is one of the things that makes them aggressive plants.

>Will they do this in succeeding years as the leaves increase in size and
how should these tuberlets be propagated?

Yes. And every year thereafter too. Normally they droop to the ground and
root themselves. You can move them then to wherever you want them.
