  A. albus question
From: "Allan Tetzlaff" <atetzlaff at rogers.com> on 2006.12.11 at 04:04:16(14912)
This may be a bit basic, but just wondering with
bulbs like albus that look somewhat like an octopus, how the new plants
develop? Some places I've read say that some of the species you have to
separate the offsets off or they get reabsorbed back into the main bulb...
others the offsets separate themselves after a time, but perhaps not the first
year. So, I'm not certain what to do with this one. One of it's
tentacles already snapped off, so that's a given.

Thanks,
Allan Tetzlaff

Hi Allan,

Fortunately Am. albus is very easy-going and it doesn't
matter if the offsets snap off, they'll yield plants again next
season.

Generally it is best to try and keep the offsets on the
mother tuber untill it is replanted. Then separate the offsets but not if they
resist.

Cheerio,
Wilbert
