I have a 3 year old titan. It measures about ' tall. When I went to repot it months ago, there was no tuber at all. I put it back in new soil and it's still growing. I haven't checked on the tuber.

Dear Tsuh Yang,
This has happened to me as well, with a large konjac
tuber that grew a leaf over 5 feet tall and probably
3.5inches in diameter  (152 cm and approx 9cm).  I dug
up the tuber in fall and ....nothing.  Mine was grown
in the ground.  At the time I thought it had put all
its energy into putting up a large leaf, and didn't
have time after that to get carbohydrates or whatever
built up to form a new tuber- needed a longer growing
period.  I don't know- it was very strange.

Dear tsuh yang,

how where the growing conditions of the plants?
Esp, fertilization.....

It is not understandable that a tuberous aroid does
not grow a new
tuber, if growing conditions and fertilization where
OK.

Better growing next time,
Bernhard.
