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

Be careful of the tarp over the soil. It can cause the soil to heat up in the sun and trap moisture from the corm. ... I suggest removing the tarp for good air circulation and set the pot in a shaded area.
