mashua and teosinte

it seems to have been a day for shriveling...the two mashua tubers that i managed to produce this past season have been doing okay in a paper bag...until now (first photo )...they are showing signs of going south so i took them into the basement and put them into peat pots filled with a potting soil/compost mix and put them under the light with the rest of the denizens ( second and third photos )'s getting crowded down there ( fourth photo )...some of those teosinte plants are pushing a foot in height and will have to find more spacious quarters i ordered another grow light fixture and prepared two large ( two feet in diameter at the top and eighteen inches deep ) soon as the fixture arrives there will be a transplanting post.
