I just got my Certified Seed Potatoes...
...and they have absolutely NO "buds" or external growth on them. I put them in the dark in a shallow pan, under the kitchen sink, standing up on their end. After two days some of them are getting mushy, to the point I think they are rotting.
Must I wait till they have substantial external growth on them before I plant them out in the specially prepared box I have for them?
As you may be able to guess, this is my first time trying to grow potatoes. I've heard it was a challenge in South Florida...but I'll try anyway.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
