Oh dear, now what? Newbie...
Last year I bought a bunch of tubers from pompon to dinner plate and grew in 12" pots. They were pretty.
I decided to dig them up, there were HUGE clumps of tubers! I put them in a bag in a shed and forgot about them till now.
The only clump I remembered to ID was bodacious, but the clump rotted.
My sister wants some so I started to divide the masses with the eyes, but I stopped because I'm not sure if I can divide them so close to planting? Do the new cuts have to "cure" or "heal" before planting?
They are sprouting so I think they need to be planted soon.
I'm in southern CA...
I'd appreciate any help. I just don't want to plant huge clumps because the tiny tubers I originally had filled the whole pots by fall!
