|double wide bucket from Walmart|
|even the runners, hacked up by the digging process have sprouted !|
|It's very important to remove ALL traces of soil, old leaf sheaths, rotten leaves etc before they go in the buckets of clean water. Worst case: you'll have to flush out the buckets and replace the water.|
To get them going easily in March, soak the dry roots in HOT water overnight (I do mine in the laundry tub). This seems to break dormancy easily. Then put up in dry potting mix, at least 1/2 of corm out of the soil with slight moisture and warmth and light.
