Good luck with your Patupi. I have had one for a year in PA and have made no progress in growing it. It is a true 'snowflake' compared to my VC. The patupi seems to be sensitive to over watering, sensitive to cold, sensitive to being dug up and potted, sensitive to lighting conditions. It has died back to the corm about 6 times already. Not sure why I have so much trouble with it but I would love to hear your success story with it by next year!!
