I have been fertilizing all season at EACH watering with a 10x usual
strength of Miracle Grow with amazing results.

ALL my Amorphs have sent out new shoots continuously throughout the season.
The ones that have gone dormant and were dug up for storage were much larger
than I would anticipate. As a guess I would say that the Konjacs which were
dime size, are now about 4 inches diameter.

Other species which haven't started going dormant yet appear even bigger.

I am sold on heavy fertilization!
