    Somewhat surprised yours is awakening already. Mine won't stir for a couple months yet at least.

    Actually she's a little late this year, it's been a cold winter and the room where I keep them runs around 62-65F.

    I've been wanting to get Konjac. They don't look to be too terribly difficult to grow and where I am it may not even be necessary to dug up each winter. Stinky flower plants have always fascinated me.

    I cannot believe--in all the world--that you would keep something like that within closed doors. Where you live!!!!

    Funny story--we have some at work and dared a coworker to kiss one for five bucks one day. The stink molecules are oil-based, so they soak into the skin and don't wash off. It was a great day. Well worth $5.

    I've been growing them for about 6 years now so I'm kind of used to the smell. LOL!

    I can't imagine my threshold shifting that much, however temporarily!
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
