(Especially Mr. Stinky, now taller than me!)
I received some Amorphophallus seedlings- about 8" (20cm) in height. They
had their roots in moist paper toweling and were in plastic bags. They
arrived pretty damaged- some had their tops "mushed" right off.
My question is: Before planting, is there something I can do to help these
The tiny tubers (tuberettes??) were wet for a week- that can't be good for
Would a captan or rootone dusting help before planting? Or would that be
too toxic for the roots?
Thanks for any suggestions!
