Default Corm or root rot?

Any idea what’s going on? They’re turning dark and falling over. This has happened to 5 out of 8 of my Grand Nains. The other 3 seem to be doing OK. Had in greenhouse in pots over winter and never got below 40. Once I put them in the ground, they never even tried to come out. Anyway to save them?

Default Re: Corm or root rot?

pull the plants and inspect roots/corm.. if mushy then yes it was rot. I'm sub tropical so I don't have experience with container growing but i'm aware to much water in winter is a bad thing for them.
