Will you have to dig and store for the winter? I cringe at the thought. I still have stuff I have to drag in on (OUR) cold blasts for my deep tropicals, I shouldn't even Noni berry is getting big, next pot will have rollers...UGGG

Lol... last year we barely saw any snow. There are benefits to it - it's an insulator. The problem is that since it's more important to keep everything dry, the milder snowless winter was wet. Not good.
I don't dig up the big corms. I DO cut off pups and pot them indoors so that by spring they've grown quite a bit... a nice jump start. For the mekong, I am going to leave inground. I like experimenting at first even if I'm told it can't be done. I have an online buddy trying Mekong Giants out near Buffalo (Tonawanda) too.
