No, despite it is considered strongly toxic to mammals, it is usually 
attacked by another parasites. My biggest tuber of Synandrospadix 
vermitoxicus (approx. 15 cm in diameter, before the attack) were attacked by 
an unknown primary agent during its dormancy (maybe nematodes, but I 
couldnīt find the monsters), so it was followed by fungus, bacteriae and 
even termites (believe me!), so it lost approximately 50% of its weight. Now 
I think it isnīt lost (I scrapped the tubers, put them in a Temik solution 
and sealed with fungicides). I only hope the the plant survive the chemical 
attack! I have never seen a massive attack like this in a tuberous aroid, so 
the poison is not so effective. Anyway, do not eat your tubers!

                               Eduardo.
