[aroid-l] Growing problems.

Hi all,
I have been having some problems with a few plants this summer.  I put in
raised beds and planted my Amorphophallus tubers out.  My problem is some
plants have "rotted" right at the top of the soil, causing the plant to tip
over.  The odd thing is,  the rest of the plant and bulb looks fine.
Foliage looks great.
This has happened in some "easy" plants, like a large konjac.  And while one
plant may be affected, another right next to it will be fine, so I don't
think the problem is over-watering.  Could I have the bulbs planted too
deep?  (I don't think they are but you never know).  Could it be the soil
itself?  I haven't seen this problem before.

Thanks for any help!
