The real trick to this is "not" to store them damp, dirty, or with imperfections still on them. I wrap mine in news paper however, saw dust, or packing material works very well also. I also add a bit of fungicide powder to the wrappings as well. This can be important to do, if you have a fungus anywhere in the packaging it can or will spread through everything.
What I am showing here are Cannaceae:, Canna Lillie's, Iridaceae gladiolas:, Gladiolas, and Ipomoea batatas:, Sweat Potato Vines (two types). This is just a small part of the whole. Now to bring in the Dracaena:, Spikes!!!!!!!
This house does get taken over by the garden during the winter months. I will show a pic later to-day of how this can look.
