Question From: Rochester, Michigan, United States
Q: I purchased alocasia calidora and canna,tropical this spring. How can i winterize the bulbs?
Cut the plants back to 2 inches above the bulbs. Carefully remove them from the ground or pots so as not to damage the bulbs. Allow them to dry on newspapers in a garage or covered porch, but do not allow them to freeze. When they have dried, put them in a cardboard box filled with saw dust or sphagnum peat moss and store them in a cool place where they will not freeze. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
