Default Re: Do pups come back when you store a corm?

I have no experience with Gran Nain, but Raja Puri tends to rot out on me from the apical meristem. I get new sprouts on the corm each spring that grow very fast and stout though. Now Orinoco I have much better luck with. The pups will almost invariably come back the next year for me. I do cut them back when hauling under the house for the winter though. The little bit of pseudostem you save on a pup just isn't worth the cumbersome size issue when I'm trying to fit it through a crawl space door.
