This year’s leaves were all shriveled uo & almost gone before I dug them from ground & potted them. They are outside & get wet from sprinkler. Should I put them somewhere where they will stay dry?

These cala lillies have overwintered in the ground for the past 3-4 years. I dug them up & put them in pots so that I could move them around when they bloom next spring. The pots they are in are in the same area where they were living in the ground before being potted. Just don’t understand why they are sprouting now. I will, as suggested, remove them from pots & dry them, but will they still sprout new growth again next spring, since they’ve got about 10 inches of new growth now?
