Dear Don,

Perhaps the reason your plant of this most interesting member of the S. American tuberous genera did not bloom last year was because it spent its energy in tuber divisions! Perhaps this year after it goes completely dormant, you need to gently un-pot the plant, carefully removing the soil around the tubers and see what you got! My friend Bobby who grows THE best Taccarums, a related genus, takes his corms/tubers out of their pots when they go dormant, this makes an examination easier, and a little fungicide dusted on them before storage helps. If there are rotted areas, he can cut these away and let them heal. They are stored dry out of the soil till they begin to sprout in spring, at which point he re-pots them.
I hope this helps.


My seed raised Synandrospadx vermitoxicus, has performed well and even bloomed for me. Last year it didn?t bloom, but looked otherwise healthy.
This year, however, there are 3 large and one small growing point, leading me to believe that the bulb has split. See attached picture. It will be going dormant for me in a few weeks, and I have just kept it potted, kept very dry and on the cool side (50-60F/10-16C). Is this ?normal? behavior as it is for some of the other tuberous species? Should the plant be divided and if so, is now or next spring the best time?
