Will this suffice until it regrows roots or do I need to remove the calloused bit? Also, thank you so much for your help. I have backup pups now in case all goes to s*** haha


You welcome!......Remove the calloused!......Next time add a teaspoon of bleach to the bucket of water for 30 minutes!....That should be enough time!....Bleach or boil water has been using on the corms in commercial plantations for years!.....
