Comments: Does not show up well when growing with other green plants. Plant tubers in a loose, porous soil. Only a few leaves are produced in tight, compacted soil. Mammoth and jumbo size tubers may be cut into several planting pieces for greater color massing. These pieces usually produce more leaves of slightly smaller sizes. Allow cut pieces to air dry 10-12 hours before planting.
