Dioscorea elephantipes Seedlings

These two seedlings are a little crazy--their tiny bulblets will eventually form into huge caudices that look like chunky pine bark. At the moment, I'm enjoying them as little babies, but they will probably move outside soon. They have a dormant period during hot, dry summers, but perhaps in a shaded location with a bit of water, they'll keep growing and getting bigger.

  1. Dioscoreas are really cute plants. All caudiforms are...especially as tiny seedlings :)

  2. I love this one because it's a caudiciform VINE!

  3. I'm confused as to whether this should be buried or not. Mine are about a year old. I lost one this summer to rot as it was buried, but I've read they should be buried. What do you do?
