I have just purchased two bleeding heart tubers in a bag and I am having a bit of trouble determining which end is up...they have a cut end and an end that appears to have new growth on it, but when I planted them with the new growth looking end up; it be
kentucky, United States
The tubers are approximately 4-5 inches and are cut at one end and the other end appear to be new growth that is curved down toward the other end. I planted them 2 inches deep according to the package, but the exposed part that looked to be new growth began to dry up after a day even though it was watered very well. This makes me think maybe it is upside down and the cut end is where the plant was cut back. I don't see any small roots anywhere.
