Default Re: Nana super slow after roots dried out over winter

Wait am I the only one here who drinks bleach from the bottle? But anyways, thank you all for your help! I cut off the callous and soaked in water with a small amount of bleach for 30 min. I hope the corm did not soak up too much water. I now have it in the shaded garage in new, dry potting mix. Will it grow roots without moisture or should I water it in a few days? This poor plant probably wishes it had never belonged to me haha

Also saved the callous because it had 2 pups forming on it. Now up to 6 pups/corms (2 pups 4 corms). So if anything goes wrong, I still have plenty of backup! Thank you again for all of your help.
