Re: Amorphophallus paeoniifolius


Not an uncommon problem with this species, and probably a bacterial infection.  Store dry as possible, and try treating surgical cuts (make sure that you cut enough to get  to sound, healthy tissue) with alcohol: soak the 'wounds', then let dry.

Hello everyone,

I have been trying to grow A. paeoniifolius that I have bought from asian spermarkets, but am having no luck stopping them from rotting. I have tried keeping them in dry compost and out of soil in a cupboard at room temperature, but the same thing happens. Cutting away the affected parts and treating with sulphur powder doesn't help. Should I try to keep them warmer, or will that make it worse? I live in southern England where it tends to be humid - could this be a problem? I have had no problems with the other species I grow, so am a bit baffled.
I would really appreciate some help as I am desperate to grow this species!

Thanks, Greg.
