Re: Amorphophallus konjac size

>From my observation I noticed that Am. konjac as well as other prolific 
tuberous aroids like T. venosum or Arisaema spp. grow larger at home. They 
produce less offsets so the main tuber grows faster. The same plants growing 
outdoors (I live in  Z6b/7a), quickly divide instead of increasing the tuber 
size. Has anyone noticed the same?
