Flowering Fern (bought from Breck’s online)
I received these tubers from Breck's today, I am confused as to which way is up. On one side is the tuber and the other end has sprouts coming out of it but I don't know if they are roots or leaves. Can you help?

I'm not clear on the specific type of tuber, but if it's a corm the rounded side should face up. Small bulbs, even if planted upside down will find their way to the surface. When in doubt, plant sideways.
