I left a few decent sized aroid (mixed) bulbs out of soil, dry and in the greenhouse. They are now frozen solid. Are they likely to be ruined or will they thaw ok come spring (whenever that may be?) :confused:

Venosum and Konjoc. I saved some indoors before it got cold so all is not lost if they dont survive.

S.venosum, possibly, several small tubers survive outside every year for me, coming up mid-summer
A.konjac, I suspect not....wait and see though

Arrrrgh. A great big pile of mushy, mouldy bulbs. :smile:

I think I now know the answer to my question.
