|I have several amorph bulbs I tossed in the ground this spring because I didn't really know what else to do with them. It's gonna get cold one of these nights, tho not for a week yet. I'm just wondering should I dig them up now while the stem is still green and put them in pots in the g'house, or should I wait till the frost kills the stem? I would LIKE to have them do SOMETHING one of these years. LOL|

|Are they A. konjac Anna? If so cold up to a hard frost knocks them down is OK as long as they're dry. Cold and wet can lead to rot so a really well draining soil is important this time of year. I'll be lifting mine (in ground) in a couple of weeks, before frost, and just cutting off the leaf.|
This one flowered in the Spring but took forever to leaf out so the tuber will probably be small.
August 26 and today.

|I had them planted under my brugs I put in the ground. Maybe I will just dig them up in the next couple of days.|

|Let us know how big they are. How do you deal with monster brugs over winter?|

|Not a problem re: the brugs. Chop them back and put in the g'house. I have a large g'house.........30x64. I think this year I should try and root-prune the ones in the 24 inch pots. They are probably 9 or 10 years old and need a little TLC for once, I'm thinking. LOL|
The ones in the ground................hmmmm..............haven't decided if I will dig them and put in pots, or just take cuttings and let the plants croak in the ground. Prolly have to hire a backhoe if I want to dig them. The amorphs are planted in the front, right under the brugs. I don't imagine you can see them.

|That bed looks great. Are those Sauromatum venosum under there? You're right, I can't see the Amorphs. They'll build a bigger tuber in full sun for us folk up north.|
