Default Can one preserve the rhizome/corm for later?

I am wondering if, I can store the rhizome/corm of the sucker for later use say after 5 months. Perhaps with some treatment when preserving to avoid infections? Or will the rhizome die?

I think you could. Some fungicide and dry cool conditions. I mean the Polynesian people brought corms from the Marquesas to Hawaii on canoes.

Many forum members dig their plants up in the fall and store them for the winter.

Some forum members store them bare root or in pots in basements and cool garages.
Winters in the northern zones are 5-7 months and plants are replanted outdoors when it warms up.

Here is an good example Time to put the bananas to sleep for the Winter

In Africa Ensete corms have been proven to stay dormant in the ground for upto 8 years! Then the rain comes and they start growing! That is just amazing to me!

I would test a pup before doing the whole collection! Keep it dark, cool, and dry. Maybe consider “under sand conditions with no rain”. It would be a fun experiment to try! I know some store dry better than others. Orinoco would be my first choice! They store dry very easily.

Please report your results!
