    Postscript: I was having a look at my Amorphophallus konjac yesterday and noticed that one of the tubers with an existing leaf was throwing out a second one right next to the first. I've never seen an Amorphophallus do this before - has anyone else experienced it?

    this is very common in konjac. For some reason they seem to get to a certain age and divide into another one but this means 2 smaller shoots as compared to 1 giant. The thing is that they usually do this after they flower and i am keeping my eye out. they say if you chop the smaller shoot off while it is small it wont come back and it should continue as one.


    KONJAC DATA

    CURRENTLY 6 1/2 inches

    I had one given to me as a christmas present that is the size of a small potato, but I know they get much bigger. How big are the tubers before they are likely to flower?
