Answer: The solution is simple. Turn the rhizomes upside down when placing them in storage, says Patrick Malcolm, owner of TyTy Plantation and grower of 75 varieties of cannas in TyTy, George. The buds for the following year's growth tend to be on the uppersurface of the rhizome. By turning the rhizomes upside down, growth hormones that keep the buds viable gravitate and settle in the buds during winter storage, he explains.
