    I always seem to kill these things when they go dormant otherwise I'd collect them.

    The flower itself is a week old, the smell lasts 3-4 days. As of today the flower is still standing but the smell has subsided.

    When Konjac goes dormant you dig it up, dry it off and sit it on a shelf in the house. You'll know when it wakes up, either the leaf stalk will start to grow or the flower spike. These are easy, they just need VERY well draining soil. And they are heavy feeders.

    That's when they die. I need some way of keeping a "dry" bulb not actually as dry as my house is. By spring they're completely dessicated and powder in my hands, if I keep it potted it's mush. So I've given up, they're all yours! LOL

    Swords, I have the same exact problem. It grows ok (bulb gets smaller and smaller, yeah i'm doing something wrong) but overwintering it is so tough, they always dry out or turn to mush. I still keep trying though, love these too much.

    I have this problem with Elephant ears but not with Amorphs.
