in our German
amorphohallus-forum we have a question to explain a often seen mark on
big T. venosum tubers.
For details see the pictures and contributions in
posts # 96, 93, 97 and 98.
The forum language is German but at the bottom of
the page there is translation fuction implemented.
maybe the link with the
translated page works also:
The questionis, if the mark
on picture 2 in post 93 can be related to the peduncle.
(I just notice that some of the
pictures are not displayed automatically in the English translation; you
might have to click the links; sorry.
for instance: http://www.amorphophallus-forum.de/index.php?page=Attachment&attachmentID=1251
controversion, because it is assumed that the old tuber is consumed /
replaced totally (post # 96) and in this case the mark cannot be
associated with the lst year's peduncle.
On the other hand there might be an indication that
the offsets go back to buds that might be present on the tuber at the
beginning of the new growing cycle and that those parts of the tuber are
still present at the end of the growing cycle below the mark on the
tuber (in other words: the old tuber is not consumed / replaced totally)
- see post # 97 and picture 1 and 6 in post # 93.
I hope these questions is
somehow understandable....... ;-)
Looking forward to any comment !
