Q.Stored Orchid Gladioli Germinating

Zone Zone 4a | Anonymous added on February 5, 2021 | Answered

Hi! I have checked on my stored orchid gladioli and most of them have germs, I did not plant them last year because we had to be away for 3 months, they were stored in vermiculite and look good still. Do I cut the germs and store them till Spring, I am in zone 4a in the middle of Winter.

I look you up all the time for advice on seed sowing, etc.

Thank you very much!
