Roots for Bugs

What are some roots/rhizomes you use for bugs (the good kind of start bug, not anything with multiple legs which can get into your ferment)? I’ve made ginger beer and ginger/turmeric, but wanted to branch out (couldn’t think of a good rhizome pun).

TIL that hundred thousands of kudzu plants were planted in the US South to fight erosion. The vine can spread over one foot a day and spread through runners, rhizomes and by vines that root at the nodes. It is now overtaking entire areas, outcompeting all other plants including trees nature.org/en-us/about-us…

I collect all types of plants, but among my very favorites are ferns. This Polypodium formasanum is so big, lush, and gorgeous, with its purple midrib, and powder blue creeping rhizomes. I grew this from a tiny plant, so I’m a bit proud of how it’s doing. reddit.com/gallery/sbzs6v

Rhizome suppliers?

Hey y'all. I'm looking to finally put some hops in the ground this year. I'm still figuring out which varietals will work best for me, but I'm unsure of the best places to purchase rhizomes from. Some of the sites I've come across have been a little sketchy. I've also had trouble finding specific varietals like Simcoe. I know it's a proprietary hop, but it's been over 20 years, so it should be free game now, right? Or do they just keep them too well protected? Thanks for the suggestions.

Buying hop rhizomes, to be super extra about it.

I'm buying some hop rhizomes for the first time, and have some questions, in case anyone who is more knowledgeable than I am may have some insight.

Two questions. The hop rhizomes were supposedly not going to be shipped out until late march or april, but after I placed the order they were shipped immediately (to arrive mid january). What do you do with the rhizomes in the meantime? Should I pot them or put them in water immediately, or are they able to just chill for a couple months first?

Second, the delivery of the rhizomes was supposed to be yesterday, but the shipment was delayed due to "extreme weather" (don't ask me why, its dry as a bone up here, much to my umbrage). Is it an issue that they're out sitting in a delivery truck 20 miles away?

Thanks a lot!

Do iris rhizomes bury themselves? I always thought they were supposed to sit on the surface of the soil, but just found mine have pulled themselves underground by a good inch since autumn just gone.

Can Anubias roots be cut back to the rhizome?

I just received my shipment of my first ever Anubias plants. The anubias coffeefolia I want to put as low down as possible due to the size it might grow to and that I have a 20 gallon tank. The rhizome is horizontal and I have a flat horizontal dragon stone that I want to glue it to but it has vertical roots that prevent that. Can I cut the roots off or should I leave the roots and glue the plant to one of my other rocks?

Desiccated iris (purposefully dried up rhizomes)

Thought this one may be interesting one to ask and see if anyone else has experience with this and hear some stories/thoughts.

So … few years ago I was getting some rhizomes for new garden and came across some dried up ones sold all the way through April-October. β€œWeird β€œ I though… but still got some as my curiosity won over me. They were about 1/3 of what a normal rhizome cost so I got 3. They were β€˜Pagan Dance’ .

When I opened the package they were looking horrifyingly dry… as if a single touch could turn them into dust. So pale and dry. No traces of any fungus or mold though so in rehydrated them as per instructions and put them in the ground. And behold! About 2 month later there were leaves and everything. Proper length too, not looking sickly or challenged in any way in growth at least visually.

So although every single one woke up from being stored dry and now grows normally, I still keep asking myself why… why store it like that? Is it just something retail farms do to manage leftovers to take less pace ? Is there any reason to store it this way? Do they perhaps keep longer this way? Like, for few years if kept properly dry perhaps? I thought maybe people who have their collections over 100 may see more logic in it

My oxalis survived. I had this outside for years but our new neighborhood has squirrels that love to bury things in potted plants, and they dig up all the rhizomes. I took it to work to see if I could salvage them and returned after a two week break to this.
