Hi Arnold,

I grow this plant successfully in Berkeley, but even our autumn heat here
(yes, it's warmest from September to October here) where daytime
temperature can get to 90F can cause the plant to go dormant. The trick is
to keep it from getting too hot or too cold because it will go dormant
under those conditions.

In your area, I suggest you grow it as a winter grower where night time
temp is min 45F but daytime temp should be in the high 50's or 60's
otherwise the tubers won't break dormancy.

When it's in dormancy, keep it dry-ish and somewhere nice and cool.
