They aren't grown in standing water, but in pots with well drained
soil. Then the saucers go up maybe 3-4" & I keep those filled with
water... I just plant the corms into the soil & they take pretty
quickly, usually within a couple weeks. The size does increase, but
not like the ones I grew outside, heavily mulched in the garden.
The corms at the asian grocery are usually pretty small, a little
larger than a walnut. You can also buy larger ones by buying elephant
plants from nurseries (or Walmart :). I've never tried dividing them,
I always plant whole.
