Terrestrial orchids may be rhizomatous or form corms or tubers.
The corms of the tuberous sundews native to Australia are considered a delicacy by the Australian Aborigines.
Some Australian species form underground corms for this purpose, which also serve to allow the plants to survive dry summers.
Some of these corms were also used to dye textiles, while another purple or yellow dye was traditionally prepared in the Scottish Highlands using D.
Virtually all types of shoots and roots are capable of vegetative propagation, including stems, basal shoots, tubers, rhizomes, stolons, corms, bulbs, and buds.
Freesias grow from corms, which may be planted indoors to flower in succession from late spring through early summer.
Well by planting hybrid Gladiolus corms, you can attain mid to late summer colour year after year with only occasional renewal.
The bulbs, technically called corms, are planted during the brief July and August dormant period.
Instead of planting individual pots of bulbs, corms and tubers.
Corms and bulbs are important when available as they are one of the greater sources of protein in plant life as are hard masts such as acorns.
