eyes will develope later especially when you move tubers to a warmer location. Steve in Baltimore County.

Many tubers without eyes will grow roots. Tubers without eyes will never grow into a plant. If you cannot see an eye or a sprout, put the tuber into a plastic bag with some damp potting mix and place the bag in a warm area,75-80 degrees. Check after a week or two. If there are eyes, they will sprout and the tuber will grow. If only the white roots are there you have a dud.
