I LOVE it: TWO tubers out of a potential 180 species, and you ask which ones
they are. You know, there IS a limit to magic!!!!!
Having said that, the #1 sounds like A. konjac, provided the offsets are on
long rhizomatous structures. Both bulbifer and muelleri (wrongly named
blumei by you, I guess......) have NO offset development. Maybe, the pale
one is krausei, provided you got it from me, directly or indirectly.
