I didn't realize that plant is native to my area. If it's like most tubers you can bury the lower part and it will root. I know an expert will come along to give you exact advice soon. If it produces seed, I would love to have some!

I have seen pics of this plant and other caudiciforms that have a flattened pancake appearence, do you know how they get this type of caudex development. There is a pic on DG of one of these plants showing that type of growth.

Interesting low tech webpage for the nursery. BTW, http://www.bihrmann.com/caudiciforms/SUBS/ibe-lin-sub.asp is a summary of the species, and here's general care from the site: http://www.bihrmann.com/caudiciforms/div/vstt.asp .
