When do you zone 5'ers start these tender bulbs?
I will try to get a head start by starting most indoors.
Colocasia (elephant ear)
I started the caladiums early last year, in April sometime, but they did nothing at all until I had given up and put the flats outside on the deck. THEN they sprouted. I have a cold house. I would really love to have them ready to pot up earlier.
The TB I started in peat pots last year, but most barely fit. I'm thinking about flats or foil pans.
