Can tiny bulbs that fall off mother bulb before they have developed their own root system be saved and grown? When dividing my multiplying glads, the baby bulbs fall off and they don't have their own roots yet! They are only pea sized and smaller but good and firm...will planting them on their own cause them to continue to get bigger if they don't have their own roots? What to do??? Many thanks...wendyD zone 4b

The corms (baby bulbs) aren't mature enough to produce a plant until the end of summer, but you can certainly store them through the winter and give them a try next spring. This article will explain how:
