calla question

Hollywog(z7soIL)August 22, 2005

I recently bought about 9 pots of calla lilies. There were several varieties. I noticed after some rains that the pots labelled 'Hot Flashes' were dying back, so I turned them out to get the bulbs prepared for winter storage. I was suprised to find only 1 solid bulb in all 3 pots; the rest were mush. What should I do? Are they goners? Should I soak the survivor in bleach to rid him of whatever may have damaged the others?

If they are mush they are goners. They probably got waterlogged in the pots, but hybrid callas are also prone to soft rot.
I would wash off the survivor really well to get off any mushy parts (I spray with a hose) and let air dry until REALLY dry. (turn as needed)

Boy, I really like the ( ) don't I? LOL
