No @gjones, it doesn’t look like it, but it is soggier than a swamp, so it would rot if I kept it like this. I’ll dry out the tubers for a week or so, and then I’ll store them in dry soil mixed with perlite or vermiculite. Oh and next year, I’ll divide them into TWO pots. Lesson learned 🤪
Lucky you @Opuntia. That might work in my area too, but winters are so unpredictable here and with so little snow, a severe frost can do a lot of damage. I might risk it with part of my collection next year.
Have no idea @gjones. It might be those small slugs (Deroceras agreste?), but it sort of doesn't look like the slug damage we normally get. I will be sure to rinse off the roots before taking them inside in the fall, just to be on the safe side.
I don't know about gresshoppers @terrimclaughlin. I remember some small ones from my childhood, but these days they seem rare as I hardly ever see any. As for the cannas, very few of the leaves are affected, and so late in the season it probably won't develop into a huge problem. I will keep an eye on them, though.
They are a bit of work since I need to dig them up and store them indoors over winter, but I decided I needed them...They probably would have liked a lot more sun than they are getting, but at least they get enough water😉 @gjones
I managed to get the cannas out of the snow, but working conditions in my crowdy orangery aren’t the best right now. Hopefully I can get the roots dry enough so they won’t rot.
