Definition of corm

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by talinum:

A solid, swollen part of a stem usually found underground. A corm actually lives for only one season, but during that season it grows replacements in the form of one large new corm, plus several tiny cormels. Discard the old corm and plant the new one, which will flower the following year.
