Elephant ear stem White

I took my elephant ear bulb out of storage and when we noticed it had a white stem on all the bulbs. Does that mean the bulb wont produce green leaves?

Your bulbs just started to wake up from dormancy and the stem is white from lack of sunlight.
Plant your bulbs as you would normally .
If the bulbs are soft and mushy, they should be tossed out.
