Bulb Storage Help Needed

evil_garden_gnome(6b)September 23, 2009

Ran a few searches on storing bulbs, but couldn't find the exact info. I was looking for

I have a few~

Peruvian Daffodil / White Spider Lily / Hymenocallis Narcissiflora

That I got in a trade awhile back, they did great, but it looks like they're done doing their thing for now

I've been growing them potted in my greenhouse & was going to take them out & store the bulbs over the winter / Make some much need room in my GH

Anyways, I dumped out one of the pots & I have a giant mass of roots & a bulb about the size of a giant onion with a few smaller strouts

Do I just cut all the roots & everything off the bulb(s)???

Should I hose all the dirt off them & let them dry out a bit before doing so???

This is my first time dealing with bulbs

So any advice on how to do it the Right Way would be greatly appreciated

Thanx,

If you have a spot with good drainage, Just plant it there, and that will be all the "storage" it needs in your climate. Just remember: the more rain you get over the winter, the faster the drainage needs to be! Good luck! : )
