Do not cut off the bottom. The tuber was regenerating itself and was interrupted. The bottom is the original tuber, the top portion is the new tuber. The old tuber is typically used up, at least partially, making the new leaf. Then, the tuber is basically “regrown” absorbing the old tuber. Sometimes the old tuber is not entirely absorbed by the new one. That is okay, it probably will absorb it next growing cycle.


Happy days,

My Amorphophallus koratensis had it leaf removed by the wind recently. Its cold now so it just went dormant. But as you can see from the pictures, it looks like two tubers stuck together when it is in fact one. The bottom one was the original tuber. Interestingly the bottom part is the same size as it was when I planted it in the spring. It now weighs 13oz. Anyway, a friend said I should cut the bottom off. I am not at all comfortable with that. What do you think? Do you think it might flower for me next year also? Is prety heavy.
Thank you
