Hi all,

I'd plant the sikokianum into the ground, with some sand under the tuber =and dig it out carefully in October or November. I'd avoid growing these =in pots, which always require more care and are warmer than planting the =Aris into the ground.
My sikoks are flowering outside, very beautiful, and will spend their win=ter in the cold basement or, if they start growth too early, in the 0=B0C=department of the fridge - this stops growth but does no harm....

Good growing !
