Hi
Where should I store any of my dormant Amorphophallus tubers (the ones that can be stored dry out of compost)?
I have both heated (10c) and unheated greenhouses or indeed indoors available.

cheers

bill

what i do is let them dry out under the bench in a heated greenhouse,just turning the pot on its side and forgetting about them till they show signs of life again
