Housemate chopped top off my largest calla! Help?
Z. PENTLANDII X HYBRID was chopped off right at the soil line and just finished "flowering". Now I can feel the tuber in the soil and it is next to a smaller one that just put out baby leaves. Will it rot and die or will it possibly just go into dormancy normally? I'm so mad :-( I hope it won't rot before any normal ending to the cycle happens. Is there any chance? Any special care (ie, low watering)? Will the little leaves help support the older tuber until dormancy? Or am I destined to lose the largest tuber? I know you are supposed to let the wither and die naturally. Boo to my clumsy housemate...thank goodness he's moving out!
Thanks for any suggestions or advice!
