Pot in a well-draining mix (oak leaf compost and coarse sand maybe?), put in a warm, well-lit place, apply a little moisture daily, and stand back! LIGHTLY fert. once it starts to grow.


I hope my plant does well enough to be able to worry about finding new ones all over the place.
First I have to worry about waking it up. Do I leave it dry until it shoots or is moisture needed.

So in about September just start withholding water until it crashes?

I'll ditto the part about G. boivinii being invasive. Every leaflet blown
off by wind and into leaf litter among plants among my oaks became a tuber
and then
a plant. I finally had to hunt every one down and discard, and get rid of
every one on the property. I'm still finding them once in awhile, this is
the 'Giraffe Knee'
type with mottled petiole. Tubers of this can get quite large.
