mold on tubers
OK I dug my dahlias, rinsed the thick clay mud off them, divided, dried, wrapped in plastic shopping bag, put in cardboard box and stored them in my parents' root cellar. I just checked them a few days ago and some had surface mold on them. Just a bit of fuzz. There was also a bit of fuzz on the inside flap of the box and I can FEEL the dampness. Could the root cellar be a bit too damp perhaps? What can I do to salvage these tubers? How about a surface scrub and a soak in bleach water? Some I cannot afford to lose because I didn't get many of them. HELP and thanks in advance.
