Default Planting tip for Chini Champa corm

Hi this is my first post and I need advice please. I have got a newly acquired Chini Champa dry corm, with small section of narrow stem attached. Do I need to soak it first before planting or should I put in a tray with sand with bottom heat. Do I need to wait for signs of roots or new shoots before putting it into a container with soil. TIA. Iíve uploaded the image in the gallery

really helps us all if u give as much info as u can....... where do you live
if the danger of freeze is gone I myself always put mine in a good potting mix and let grow till I see a new leaf push out, then I wait a week and put in the ground....and you certainly could put it in the ground right away if u are comfortable with doing that...banana's are a lot more tougher than ppl think they are....kub

Great find.
There are a few ways forum members do this.
Some use sand and some use a prepared soilless mix.

Hopefully forum members which use sand at this stage will give details of their process.
They are very successful.

I choose to use a prepared soilless mix.
It is not a better way than sand but I can transition my plants easier in my situation.

I prepare a 3-5 gal container and place the corm in the center with dusting of rooting hormone and light organic fertilizer water lightly.......and wait.... and wait.

A heat mat is a must and facilitates faster healthier plant growth.

Here is your photo.
Great healthy looking corm.

Hiya Re: Planting tip for Chini Champa corm

Thanks for the information and reposting my picture. I am in the UK so it wonít be going outside not until at least June/July and it will be in a container. I will keep it in sand for now and will update with its progress :

Here is link to HMelendez's photos using his sand mix to facilitate his new plants and corms.
As you can see it works wonders....maybe he will share his mixing ratio.?

He does not use a heat mat because he lives on one.... in sunny southern Fla.

Thumbs up Re: Planting tip for Chini Champa corm

Thankyou for all the info and thanks to Hector for the images. I think I should soak the corm for a day and then put it into sand in a warm place
