Papery Covered Bulbs and How to Plant Them

rkchappell added on August 16, 2016 | Answered

I was given some bulbs in a clay pot with soil on them and I want to replant them. I don't know how deep to plant them or what they are. They didn't even know there were plants in the soil of the pot at first. When I ran my finger over the soil I felt the dry tops of the two bulbs. I wondered if I should replant them in new soil so the tops don't show like I found them. Was that just a side effect of being dormant? Sorry, I don't have a camera on my phone.
