Ginger, we don't have any problem with a question like that...
or to re~ask or clarify a question..
If you didn't get it, we always encourage to re~ask if you don't quite get it..
That's how we learn...
The way you described it, is you've got it right..
The pointy end goes up..
*examine your bulbs that are sprouting and hold them up against the one's that aren't yet...
and see if you can see a line of similarities..
Most time the discription for bulbs is a pointy end and a flat/hairy end..
~~~>Pointy being up, and flat hairy end down..
But they do say, if you can't really tell..
*and trust me some of them can be very difficult even for a seasoned gardener
that you can plant
a bulb on it's side..
and it will get to the top...
and roots will go down...
Do you happen to have any pictures of the bulbs/corms you're wonderin' about??????
