Still growing them, but after this year..its only basjoos... Im also done storing corms. After the difference i've seen between pups i overwintered inside (then moved to the greenhouse in March) vs huge corms i stored...the corms are WAY behind the other and i don't see them ever catching up. The greenhouse one just exploded in April/May with the sun/heat. The reason for basjoos? They just do better then anything else i've grown. The SDCs i have (a bunch) are gone after this year.
