RE: Advice on keeping those pencil tubers

I have been very happy with the sulfur/saran wrap method for the past few years. After dividing, the tubers are tossed in a baggie with garden sulfur and then wrapped individually in saran wrap. Stored in a cool dark place. Last year with over 200 tubers, I lost 3-4 to rot, and none dried up.

It takes a little time, but it works.
