<< I'll have to content myself with my A. konjac watch >>

Well, my A. konjac has finally wilted.  It was it's first spring to flower.  
I didn't even know what kind of plant I had, until a few weeks ago, when I 
did some snooping around on the internet and found out what I had. I got my 
first corm, tuber, or whatever we decided to call it, at a garage sale in 
southern Ohio a few years ago. I plant it outside every spring and dig it up 
in the fall, putting it in the basement.  When I found it growing in the 
basement this spring, I brought it upstairs and it must have grown about 2 
feet in one day, or at least it seemed like it. In a week, it was about 6 
feet tall. It had divided into two corms last summer,but was still attached.  
I cut it apart this spring.   So I actually had two flowering A. konjacs.  I 
kept waiting for it to stink. It stank a little bit one day, when it got in 
the 70's, but it never stank again.  I had to get really close though to 
smell it.  I kept expecting it to get really stinky, but, it stayed in the 
60's and rainy most of the time, so it never stank.  Probably a good thing, 
because my husband was threatening to get rid of it, if it smelled. NO sense 
of adventure.

Does anyone know if I can keep it outdoors in the ground year around in 
northern Ohio?  Should I give it full sun, part sun, shade, or what?  Should 
I care for it the same way the titanum is cared for?
