Get them out of the plastic bags right away. Never store Amorphophallus tubers or offsets in a plastic bag, even ventillated. Put them in paper.
Am. variabilis don't produce foliar bulbils to my knowledge so maybe you have a wrong id on the plant.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Storage of Amorphophallus Bulbils

So far this fall, I have harvested / recovered the leaf bulbils from five amorph species:
A. variabilus
A. bulbifer
A. muelleri
A. variabilus
A. symonianus
A. ????
These range in size from that of a pea, to a half dollar.  
For now, I have them in well ventilated perforated ziplock bags.  Anyone have advice for storage and care, or planting them, either now or later?
Thanks and Cheers!
