Preisdent Canna Question :

Happy Spring everyone ~
I have some quick questions about my Cannas, any help would be great :

I saved my Canna bulbs in a wooden wine crate lined with plastic and added alittle bit of soil - In March I placed them in a South facing window, and they are all growing - my questions are :

One some of them, it looks like there is a dead black stripe, running through the leaf or sprout and I was wondering what causes this ? Water, light, soil ect . ?

And should I pot them up now ? Or wait until after frost to get them outside ?

Again, any help would be great ~ Tom

RE: Preisdent Canna Question :

I have absolutely no idea what the dead black stripe is, but I would separate them from the others just in case. Cut the 'bad' part off and hopefully it won't return.

I would go ahead and pot them up and get them going for transplanting outside.


RE: Preisdent Canna Question :

do they need to be hardened off ?
