    If it's top heavy then repot but Amorpho's don't need that big a pot. They develop a network of short roots that radiate out from all over the surface of the tuber. I grew a metre tall A. paeoniifolius in a 30 cm diameter (and about 25cm deep) pot and had no problems at all. Of course if you have access to a bigger pot then use it. Just water regularly and, like Kai noted, fertilise HEAPS and the tuber will grow quickly and produce lots of offsets.

    Cheers, Troy.

    First of all its KHAI,
    The reason I suggested a larger pot is so the plant doesnt dry out so fast. All of the A. titanum that I have grown have not only been heavey feeders but the are also water hogs.
    One thing I should note though is that I dont grow in standard hieght pots, I only use Azaela pots for plants.

    Sorry bout the name Khai, my son's name is "Kai". Guess I was thinking of his spelling.

    Cheers, Troy.
