Q.I’m putting my water Lily tubers in glass jars and water to store over the winter. Do I cut of the roots or leave them on tuber?

One of your articles said I could store them in glass jars with water on a windowsill bare rooted, but it didn’t say if I should cut off the roots. Can you help? thank you!

No, you will not cut the bare roots. They will need this to regrow after dormancy.
