Holes in iris rhizomes - throw out or plant?
First time on this forum - This morning accidently hoed up some rhizomes, and am concerned over tiny holes, like ground black pepper-sized dots all over the underside of most. One with the fewest spots has a sprout, so I moved it to a different area and shallowly planted it. The rest I covered with water and left in a pot outside until I can find out if the holes are from pests and if so if I should discard them. Some looked a little withered, but when I broke off a section, was surprised at how fresh the inside looked. Reading some on this forum, I think the water is a mistake, but still need advise. Thank you all!
