I got a windfall bunch of NOID glads from a friend. I planted all of the larger corms in containers today. I still have to plant the small corms but there are many small, round, pea-sized cormlets. Do I plant the cormlets and/or handle the same way?

They won't bloom this year, right?

I mixed mine up with dirt in a clear container. When I saw germination, I dumped them out and planted the germinated ones in 72 paks. The rest went back into the dirt to await more germination.

Depends on type of glad, usual glads in the trade very unlikely. If the glads are not from the usual source though....*shrug* maybe, a lot of the species bulbs (and hybrids closer then modern garden cultivars) are often far smaller at maturity.

Anyone with oryzalin (aka Surflan, Embargo), am looking for a small amount rather than 5litres from manufacturer (min size in Australia....)
