All my Amorphs are still growing well except for the pranii. For some reason it went into dormancy although there's still a few months of growing season left. My largest is a paeoniifolius, it stopped growing by late December when it reached 227 centimetres (7.45 feet). This is it this morning, in the rectangular pot.
Looks lovely, tropicbreeze. Another Australian just posted a photo of his 30+ cm paeoniifolius bulb- planted with mulch and chicken poo. I'm so envious!
FWIW, my prainii did the same thing, it never grew long enough to build up a big tuber. The tuber just got smaller and smaller until it croaked.
Lakesidecallas, I haven't seen that other post of the A. paeoniifolius, which forum is it in?
My A. prainii I only bought last year as a growing plant, not my prefered way with Amorphs, but the only way they had it. I think they must have got it going early in the season. I haven't dug it up yet to see how the tuber is. Just want it to be completely dormant first. Anyway, I won't be able to know if it has grown or shrunk.
