My dilema now is I have lots of voodoo lily bulbs that are green & standing tall & pretty with the exception of one which is turning yellow & withering. Do I HAVE to dig that bulb or can I leave it in the pot & just not water it and see if it blooms this upcoming season? I've just found these, gone nuts over them and can't quite find the correct or right information even after looking it up on the Genus Amorp. website for info.

Not sure, Alta, but @eclayne will know what to do. Hopefully he will come and see your question.

I think they are all going to go dormant for the winter pretty soon, though.

Thanks for the tag Elaine. Hi Alta, Which Voodoo Lily do you have? If what you have is Voodoo Lily (Amorphophallus konjac) , you can store it potted and dry during dormancy. I lift or un-pot mine to inspect for rot, then store on a shelf in a cool, dry place.

This list gives expert recommendations regarding storing Amorphophallus (in soil or dry).
