‘Sprouted’ Unplanted Caladium Bulbs

Anonymous added on April 29, 2018 | Answered

My unplanted caladium bulbs have a tiny sprout appearing. Does that first sprout go 'down' or 'up' in the ground? ( Is it a root or first shoot coming up?) I know they will come up regardless, but they will come up faster if planted correctly.

The smooth side is the bottom and knobs on the topside is where new shoots will emerge. You likely have a shoot, not a root.
