RE: [Aroid-l] Alocasia Sanderiana dormant

I cannot speak on the A. sanderiana, as mine have never gone dormant, but
your Typhonium (formerly Saromatum) venosum must go dormant this time of
year in the northern hemisphere. When the leaves fall down completely, they
should come off with a slight tug. If not, then they are not quite ready.
After you remove the leaves, dig up the tubers, clean off all the soil and
roots, but be careful not to damage the growing bud at the top center. Let
the tuber air dry in a cool dry place, and leave it alone until spring, when
it should be re-planted. If the tubers are big enough, you will get a flower
sometime between January and April.

Happy days,

I recently was forced to move all of my Aroids to my
attic because of some major renovations in my home. I
have since moved them back into a permanent winter
growing room under lights with some natural sunlight.
My A. Sanderiana Has shed all of its leaves and I
believe that the cooler Temperature in the attic
caused it to go dormant. The attic had dropped to the
low 40's at night and a few specimens had suffered
including my Alocasia and my Sauromatun Venosum.  The
lowest night Temperature now is 62 degrees. Has
anybody experienced this before?
