tuberous begonias not growing

I had several tuberous begonias: Two were 1 year old seedlings, one was a cutting, and the other was a 8 year old tuber.

I let them die down and stored them in the basement last year. There is still no signs of growth. I brought them up last week and lightly watered them. Still nothing.

Any ideas what might have happened? The tubers are visible and are not soft or hollow.

RE: tuberous begonias not growing

They are typically very slow to grow. Did the tubers have growths when you potted them up? If so, they're viable, and they'll grow eventually. It can take a month for them to start growing. If they didn't have growths, they still might grow, but it'll take them awhile. Put them someplace warm and don't overwater.
