Dear Tony, Thanks for the info and link. My small tuber was planted in a med pot, then moved to a gall pot and now looks like it needs up potting again. I was hoping its deciduous habit would indicate better hardiness (except it comes from the most tropical parts of Yunnan, alas). It is growing a bit oddly. I am hoping it will grow fairly weel during our warm wet summer (as opposed to the more typical drought).
