How old do they need to be to make the little bulbils? Mine hasn't done that yet.

They will do it at any age i believe, but they dont do it right away, when the leaf is fully out and ages a little it will start to grow them.

Susan, is the Bulbifer or Paeoniifolius the one with a bunch of bumps on the stems? Petitole.Thumb of 2010-09-27/mekos/5bc936 My name tags are faded off and I need to re-tag them.

Bulbifer is smooth, and Paeon is sometimes bumpy. But, many get a little bumpy when they are starting to go dormant, when the petiole starts to get a little flat on one side.

I just looked at our 10 day forecast and we have some nights in the 40s coming! It rained yesterday and today so I'd better get the Amorphs inside... ugh, so much work to do before cold weather!

I would say that was paeoniifolius but if you could get a better photo...

here is a different one.
Thumb of 2010-09-28/mekos/9ee7af I think this Sumawongii
and another different one. This is Thiensis I got from you.
Thumb of 2010-09-28/mekos/5233db same A. Thiensis

Yes, that first one is probably paeoniifolius, because there are no bulbils on the leaflets. Your plants look nice and green and healthy!

Thanks, it is nice and shiny and growing good,and it has the bumpy stalk. It is around 3 feet tall. Actually about 38 inches tall. My Konjac is not shiny at all and has a smooth petitole/ stalk and a little taller. I'm still trying to ID the one outside. I'll find a new picture for it tomorrow and see if you think it is A. Galbra.
Would this be my Bulbifer? Thumb of 2010-09-28/mekos/4f5233 It is trying to go dormant right now.

Hard to tell! Their leaves look so alike at a young age. From the petiole I'd say it's another konjac. Bulbifer has a pretty distinct white and green markings.

Thanks Susan. I appreciate all your help. And with so much going on today, I didn't get the picture of the one outside to show but will try later. It is too dark now.

I've never grown galbra so I wouldn't be much help there, but maybe someone else would be!
