Joy How do you know if your piece of a corm is dead?

How do I know if the piece of corm I planted back in May is still alive? Nothing has happened yet. Yes I know I already asked this on another thread but I thought I needed to ask it a different way! Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

Depotted - i saw your other post about tissue culture? a piece of corm is not a tissue culture. if your chunk of corm had roots and/or an eye it should work. very much like planting seed potatoes

I donít think I knew that! Yeah my chunk of corm didnít have roots or an eye as far as I know! Oops! I wonder if thatís why it never did anything then! I thought all you had to do was take the tiniest bit of corm and stick it in the soil. It would at some point start to grow! Well, thanks for clearing that up for me!
