Help! I just 15 japanese butterbur plants, just bulbs, they have a point on one side and the other is cut flat. I'm just not sure if the pointy end of the bulb goes down or up? I dont want to plant them wrong...

Most bulbs are planted with the pointy end facing up toward the sky, its the pointy end that will grow and bloom. Otherwise I dont know anything about japanese butterbur (but it sounds beautiful!)
