Winter storage

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'v been thinking about giving these plants a try next year. My plan is to keep them in an unheated greenhouse, but how do I do when the winter approach?

Are there some hardy species that survive freeze, or must they be kept at warmer temperatures?

I only grow A.konjac and A.bulbifer from this genus. A.konjac needs to be kept dry and frost-free. A.bulbifer not so sure, still young seedlings, I suspect a bit warmer...

I dig my Konjacs up in fall before first frost and dry and clean them off. They get stored indoors in a cool place. No need to cover them with anything, just sit them on a shelf/table!

GREAT plants!

This I dug up a few weeks ago, it was tennis ball sized when I planted it this past spring:
