The blooming corm should sprout new pups whether removing all pups or some.
Thanks for the response. She is definitely actively growing and so far the newest leaf looks healthy, just small.

Just so I am clear - assuming she is trying to flower, you are suggesting it is not worth letting her do so?
Who keeps calling me nuts??
