    Yay, I be up and on the soil right away! Hmm...I have old soft wood that would be nice to have it in there for extra nutrients and a natural appearance.

    I have several Sauromatum venosum plants in the yard and their stems always grow in a half-bent over fashion. They are very sensitive to changes in soil moisture and temperature. If they dry out even the slightest in the hotter days of summer, they tend to die back. Most of the time the bulbs are fine. I keep them in very dry pots during the winter, or dig them up and keep them wrapped in dry sphagnum over the winter. Sauromatums are prolific reproducers, so I'm less careful with these, it seems. My other voodoos, though, all get dug up and stored away for the winter. All of these bulbs rot very easily if they are damp and cold.

    Dustin, they'll be alright. The tuber just might not be huge at the end of the growing season, but it will have increase in size nonetheless. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
