We cross posted Linda. That definitely looks like rot. Let them dry. A lot. I think they will come through it. Just keep them dry.
Twit should be along in a week or two and may have more information for us.

Great photos Linda. Glad we started this thread so us visual people can understand what things look like. Here are a couple of mine that really stuggled last year because of drought (they were new plants for me), then our fall and winter rains came, and are still here almost non stop into March. You can see the damage. Hope they will flourish once our sunny weather arrives. : (

Linda, Sorry that I missed your original post and only just saw this. Can you update the original pictures so that I can see how they are doing? Lynn gave you very good advice. As long as you catch them soon enough and let them dry out for a few days before planting, then keep them on the dry side, most will recover. Since there is root on each offset or piece, you should have good results.

I thought she was the hospital administrator. Blinking They aren't allowed to practice medicine because its a conflict of interest. Need to make a profit but don't play golf, you know what I mean? (I sure hope she's not listening, I'll get into trouble for saying that)

Oh no...I didn't realize or think about her being the hospital administrator. *Blush* Maybe she's just leading a helping hand and not really a NP... Rolling on the floor laughing Hilarious! Blinking

Good morning Cynthia. Don't get all wet out there. I think we might even have some sun again today. Hurray!
