Dear Friends,
	Thanks to a very kindly PBS er, I got some tubers of Oca last 
fall ( Oxalis tuberosum), both red and yellow tubered varieties.  I 
ate most (yum), but planted 2 of each in large pots. They all grew 
well, but I do not recall seeing any in flower. Now as other  winter 
growing Oxalis are going dormant, so are these. I noticed that one 
pot has a number of small 'marble-sized' tubers right on the ground, 
but attached.

	I'd appreciate any thoughts on what next ? Should I with hold 
water, keep hot and dry or just shaded and dry or un-pot and see 
what's dormant.? Or.? Appreciate experienced suggestions.

	The foliage is almost totally gone, just a few ratty stems 
and a tiny bit of faded green.

		Many thanks for cultivation info. 		Jim W.
