I grow all the long-cormed Amorphs in sections of PVC pipe cut to the 
appropriate length.  They sell flat caps that insert into the pipe (not 
the permanent cap pieces that are white and fit over the end of the 
pipe).  I drill holes in the cap as well as the pipe very near the 
bottom for drainage.  To keep them from falling over, you can stand 
several of them in other large pots.

It's been my experience that potting one of these horizontally doesn't 
really accomplish anything.  Once in a while a dormant bud does start 
to grow but it's really rather random.  The new corm that forms still 
grows vertically and just pushes the entire plant out of the pot or 
grows down through one of the drainage holes and tips the pot over.

I just planted some very long P. fallax tubers , and was lucky to have 
an extra tall pot to put them in . But if they get any longer , what 
will I grow them in next year ?
Could I grow them just by laying them in a large pot instead of 
standing up ?
I thought this might intiate some dormant growth points along the 
length of the tuber somehow , and maybe give some offsets . There are 
some very nice glazed ceramic pots available that are nearly 1m high , 
though a bit expensive , they would be perfect for these .
