Amorphophallus titanum dormancy

  • Subject: Amorphophallus titanum dormancy
  • From: "ExoticRainforest" <Steve@exoticrainforest.com>

There is one very recent post on a US garden site stating Amorphophallus titanum should not go dormant if kept above 50 degrees F (10 C).  That is outside my understanding of the species though I do not grow this one.  I asked at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden about their specimens at the IAS show and was told they were dormant.  Obviously, it was well above 50 degrees F in mid September.  Would one of you Amorphophallus experts please comment?  I'd like to be able to copy your comments and post them on this garden site with credit to you.
