Ah yes, the reason I quite growing most Amorphs....they have their schedule, I have mine and mine is about 4 months long plus some time under lights......flowering and then growing a leaf in fall became routine, wanting to start growing in the fall was too routine so out they went!!  At least with the Dracontium I know they are going to be nearly evergreen (like titanum) so I am ready for it with my small collection of them.  Besides, Dracontium are way better looking :o)
Good growing through the winter everyone,

Any body know how to force dormancy? I have several spp including cirrifer that gave me flowers then promply decided not to grow a leaf. Another one I kept breaking the leaf off and it would take so long to start growing a new one that there is not enough grow time lef in the season. Now those ones that flowered are starting to grow buds. I need them to stay asleep until next season. any ideas?

I refuse to
participate in the in the recession.

Dear Vincent,

There is no mention of ''natural'' variegation in Dracontium amazonense in the literature I have. 
We are left with three possibilities of which I can think ---

1) Your treatment w/ chemicals has caused this condition.

2) This variegation has spontainuosly developed in your plant.

3)  Your plant has become infected w/ ''Dasheen mosiac virus", very common in MANY genera of cultivated aroids, it slowly weakens the infected plant over time.   No cure, and infected plants if confirmed should be burnt.  It is spread by sucking insects such as Aphids.

Good Growing,

I have a small Dracontium amazonense that has a variegated leaf At first I thought it was white spots that were either damage or disease. But now that the leaf is bigger, it looks to be variegated for sure. I still could be wrong but I think not. It could be the result of mu hormone experiments but I was not trying to induce variegation as I do not know how. Inducing variegation seems to be a closely guarded secret. At any rate, I do not think I could duplicate it. I was trying to increase tuber growth actually.

But then again, maybe I did not induce this. So my question to the experts is: Is this common for this spp to be variegated?
