Peter -

I grow both they are hardy in my zone 6b garden.  I planted the A. konjac
6 - 8 in deep.  The Typhonium venosum was planted deeper but one large corm
is just below the mulch now, so I suspect it may be hardy for you in zone 5

I was recently given corms for Amorphophallus konjac
(aka A. riveiri) and Sauromatum guttatum (aka S.
venosum, Typhonium venosum).  I plan to grow them
outdoors.  I have done searches on the web, and it
appears that they are not difficult to grow.  I would
appreciate helpful hints from individuals who have
experience growing theses Aroids.    In what zones are
they hardy enough to be left in the ground over
winter?  I know that they are not hardy in my zone 5
garden, but I will be sharing them with people in
zones 6 and 7.  Thanks in advance.
