soaking bulbs - Calla, peony, tigridia

steelskies(5)June 11, 2013

Walmart has all their bulbs on half price, so I bought a bunch! Some of them are very dried up, and I know they might be iffy as far as actually turning into a plant.

Should I soak any of these bulbs first? One I have is called "tigridia mix" ($2.69 for 20 bulbs) another is a felix crousse peony rhizome,also very dry, and 3 packs of calla bulbs (2 bulbs @$2.99 - EXPENSIVE!).

I thought I went overboard buying l0 packs, until I saw an older man with a cart full of those bulbs!

I did soak the Amaryllis bulbs and Voodo lily bulbs until I saw strong roots came out. Then, planted into the planter.

They are growing leaves now.
