What to look for in buying calla bulbs
I have not grown these before. I was looking some over today in the store and actually examining the bulbs for the first time. I didnÂt know they were so bumpy and irregular.
Do I look for ones with many bumps? Or larger bulbs with fewer bumps? The smaller many-bumped ones had small shoots, whereas the bigger bulbs looked more dry and with no obvious signs of life. Also, I saw them sold 2 ways: in a box with peat moss, or loose in a bag with no cushioning. Does it matter? Is one better than another?
And how to start them early indoors? In pots like dahlias or begonias, or with any additional special treatment? Or do they not need a head start?
