    We grew water chestnuts this year in buckets of soil that I kept topped up with water each day. They grew well but the corms are a bit small. I certainly will be growing these again and I have a few ideas which may increase the size of the corms.

    How do I store the water chestnuts I plan on growing next year? Am I right to assume that if they are too wet they will rot? Could I store them in some damp soil in an ice cream container in the garage? Would they be better in the crisper part of the fridge?

    Thanks for your help.


    I harvested mine as well, the ones I’m replanting for next year are in tube pots of potting mix out the front which they will stay in till spring after they sprout and reach about 10cm in height when I’ll transplant them and start the flooding.
