Just let one or a even a few slime and wiggle around in your hand. Then slowly bring your hand closer and closer to your eyes. Then there you have it, fear faced. Worms won't and can't hurt you.

Well, this is a bit outside the usual questions on horticultural matters. Of course, the only meaningful answer is to get professional help. The fear of worms, and the fear of snakes, have several different names, and are both clinical conditions. The best advice I can give is to look for support groups and therapists who specialize in phobias.

Flower color, texture, shape and even smell all have to do with pollination in order that the plants can reproduce. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/children/why-plants-have-bright-colored-flowers-flower-color-significance.htm

If you are hoping to have them bloom for the holidays, you can leave them for now. Some bulbs, like Amaryllis, actually do best in a crowded pot. If you are not looking for them to bloom soon or after they have bloomed, you can separate the bulbs from the mother bulb and repot them each in their own pot. It may take a year or so until they bloom again after that while they settle in.

You don't know what these are? Have they ever flowered? It's hard to advise you what to do when we don't what kind of plant you have. I would suggest you leave the pot where it is unless there's a hard cold on the way, then you can bring it in. An alternative would be to take in the bulbs for storage, but if the leaves are still green I wouldn't do that. If the leaves die back, you could try lifting and storing them. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/bgen/preparing-bulbs-for-winter-how-to-store-bulbs-for-winter.htm

In your computer's browser enter "where to buy granite setts near [insert your community]". This should give you a number of sources that you can call to get prices, etc.
