dormant aroids!

my aroids are going dormant, not just the Amorphophallus spp. but also my Typhonium/Sauromatum venosum are having a brief dormancy before taking off again

photos and stats!

some of these were only bought through the summer so havent actually grown under my care yet, others are still growing since the last set of pictures.

*asterisk means theyre showing signs of waking up from dormancy, which worries me because im heading into winter :s

this list is only ones dormant right now, all others are omitted

GO LIST KAPOW:


Amorphophallus bulbifer
4 a 164g (down from 348g last dormancy :s)

Amorphophallus coaetaneus
1 a (no photos or records yet because i dont want to disturb it while it wakes up)*
Amorphophallus hirsutus
1 a 10g (fairly recent purchase, no previous records)*

image


Amorphophallus kiusianus
1 a 4g (fairly recent purchase, no new records)*

2 a 6g (forgot to take a photo sorry, but it has a massive split in the tuber, looks like pacman from above, should i worry about this? also no previous records)*

Amorphophallus paeoniifolius
1 a 3g (this ones weird, i got it 2010/2011 summer, but it grew through winter, stupidly i didnt take any records of it, but it grew pretty well, going dormant right before spring. when this last summer came up i thought it would emerge with the rest of them, but instead it just rotted through, leaving a tiny 3g tuber left, its waking up so im not disturbing it for a photo)*
Amorphophallus prainii
1 a 51g (no previous recods)*

image


Typhonium/Sauromatum venosum
1 a 18g (down from 26g last year, i think i reduced watering these ones too soon and sent them into early dormancy, the old tubers are still attached)*

image


2 a 21g (still 21g from last year, but last year it was a single tuber. old tuber still attached)*

image


3 a 39g (down from 54g last year, old tuber still attached)*
