[aroid-l] tubers splitting

I also have had tubers that split, usually on the bottom.  I've seen this in
Arisaema, and like you, Synandrospadix.

I suspect this may be due to the plant getting too much water just before it
to shut down for dormancy.  This splitting of tubers is a lot like
watermelons and
pumpkins splitting in the autumn due to getting too much rain.
