There is a good clump of this in the gardens facing False Creek in Vancouver BC, by Granville Island. It has been there to my knowledge for 3 years, and probably much longer. Does this climate differ much from yours?
Here in the UK I often lose them in pots if they stay moist, but they are usually OK in the garden in very well drained soil.

Due to our rainfall,  I have rotted out the tuber of this plant more times than I care to count and had seedlings die off. I put a tuber in a 2 gallon pot about a month ago, and set it next to plants in the garage which are waiting for spring.

Should I water this tuber or just let it sit in the pot waiting for spring watering? Or will it tell me what to do?
