Ever since ive been growing A. konjac (about 3 years), not much has happened
with the bulbs. Even ones that i have ahd for 3 growing seasons have put on
absolutely no tuber mass at all. They usually come up mid winter and grow until
mid summer. Is this too short a period of time for them to do anything? What
is going wrong?? I desperately want to see a flower, and i am no closer to
getting one than i was 3 years ago.
Fertilize. Fertilize again. Nitrogen, nitrogen, nitrogen. Then, when you
think you have fertilized too much, you have only just begun. Fertilize
some more, and more, and more. Feeding weekly is probably only a light
appetizer, something like those silly rice cakes my macrobiotic friends
Osmocote or the like is not going to cut it. Osmocote only lasts the
stated time if temperatures are rather cooler than Amorphs prefer. You
are going to have to mix up some liquid fertilizer and give it to your
plants very frequently.
And, how big is the pot? Would you expect a 600-pound person to live in
an Aston-Martin coupe?
