Default Best Practices For Starting Corms in Pots?

This is more of a question to the experienced folks here than me offering advice. At this posting, Winter has just began in Zone 7 and i have 9 corms potted up in 9 pots in my heated office. I've grown TC plants, but this is my first bout with corms. My primary concern is maybe too much / not enough water.

All tips / suggestions / comments are welcome!

Post a photo of the plants if you can with your current method to grow your corms......

There are a few ways members grow out their plants from corms in containers.

Some folks use perlite, sand, and peat moss based mix's with great results.
Some plant the corm directly in the ground.

I have used all three substrates in containers and have had no real issues with them.

Some members really like the sand or perlite. Use what you can afford or what is easy to get.


With any of the ways one chooses good drainage is key especially in a slow growth indoor environment.
