Ty said to use the biggest corms I could get and I didn't want to destroy all my stocks so some I planted to put out new plants just for experimenting.

I have 1 small bins on heating mat with sawdust, 3 corms in that bin. I have 1 pot with sawdust and 1 corm in that. All the rest are in soil. The ones in soil seem to be producing better and faster.

Some I soaked in a solution of BAP water. Some I soaked in Coconut water, a natural alternative to BAP.

So we shall see. I'm wondering if the small corms I pared them down too small.

If I remember I'll post some photos tomorrow.
