      What I would do with sprouted tubers.

      I know some of you got tubers in the mail. Its a bit early so I would not put them outside unless I had a heated tank. Now next week I am going to try and find a small stock tank to put some of mine in. I would plant then in a small pot. put in some dirt and some osmacote, place the insert the bottom half of the tuber in the dirt and sprinkle some sand over the dirt. place in a large heated well lit tub. Dont forget to label. Most f you can get more plants off of the tubers if you want too. I dont mind a few multiple crowns. I will be giving most of my blues away to a cousin who loves blue and does not care if they have a name or not. Remember heat and light are important.

      Yup, that would work well, you would have well budded plants ready to put out the first moment the ponds are warm enough.

      Plus, with a set up as effective as that if the weather takes a nasty turn late in the season you can bring them back in...
