It looks really well! Congratulations! I ordered two of them... i'm thinking to plant them on one big pot and grow them outside below a corktree.... any sugestions? And regarding watering? Thank's!
I just got my two d. alata plants and they are HUGE! Big pots and very big plants. I'm very impressed, the plants are beautifull and very healthy!  ;D

Glad to hear that. Mine is growing very fast again, around 3-4 cm per day.

Im in south florida. Got a few small bulbils from my local Filipino restaurant. and grow them over the summer season. harvest a huge! tuber from each bulbil. I have many many many starts growing all over the yard from the aerial tubers. dozens literally. I have made many purple pancakes, muffins, pies, smoothies. or just plain boiled and mashed with butter. yummy.
