Re: [Aroid-l] moving dormant plants outdoors

It's been my experience up here in CT that if I water the tubers before they're ready to break dormancy that I'm risking rot - and a high risk, too. I would not recommend doing the move and I wouldn't recommend trying to keep them moist unless you have one of the few species that won't tolerate dryness at all.

When I try to keep "slightly moist" I generally lose the tubers. Most of them don't require the "slightly moist" when they're in soil during dormancy.

On another topic, now that it is Summer here in South Florida, my wife would
like to get all of my dormant Amorphophallus pots out of the garage. Would I
loose them if I put the pots out where they get rained on?  Should I keep
them moist in the garage?  Ron Kessler ronlene@bellsouth.net
