[Aroid-l] Amorph tuber recovery after rot

  • Subject: [Aroid-l] Amorph tuber recovery after rot
  • From: Adam Black epiphyte1@earthlink.net

During dormancy, my largest A. paeoniifolius tuber that has been blooming for several years suffered from some localized rot, which damaging the central area where the new petiole or inflorescense would emerge. The rot was sucessfully treated, but now there are two substantally smaller growing points developing on either side of the damaged central disk that look like they will put up some small leaves. What will happen now? Will one of the shoots develop into a "dominant" full sized shooting point and be back blooming and putting up large leaves in a few years, or will it forever be a "Siamese twin" bulb with two growing points? I was hoping to grow this into a monster until this setback!

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
