Tulip Bulbs With Mold - Knowledgebase Question

Newton, MA
Question by lorigottlieb

I have some tulip bulbs that were left in a closet for several weeks tied up in plastic bags. Some of them have mold growing on them, and some have sprouted a little; but they don't seem to be mushy or soft. Should I plant them? The ground here is still very soft and warm, as we have been enjoying mild weather in the BOSTON area.

Go ahead and plant them as soon as possible. Try not to break off any sprouts and do still bury them at the recommended depth. Next time, keep them in a paper bag or better yet plant them right away!
