When clearing out tubs yesterday, I discovered very large, heavy round ?tubers in 3 of them. The largest is almost spherical with a diameter of about 9 inches. I grew begonias in these pots last summer but these look much to big to be begonia corms. Can anyone help please



hard to say, no idea what you've been growing. If they're not potatoes, maybe Colocasia? Alocasia?

I think it is Begonia, the tuber full of water is large and spherical. Here is a link with pics to check. (
