Some of the obvious questions that come to mind regard the dormancy of the plants, plus current temperature range and light intensity of the environment? Had you experienced similar problems with these plants/species in previous years? What was their condition just before you brought them in?Thanks,

I have two potted tubers, both labeled Cyc. graecum.  Both were grown 
outside near each other but are inside on the south window for the winter. 
One looks normal.  The second pot has extremely etiolated stems 12 inches 
(30 cm).  The tuber is 2 inches (5cm).  The leaves are small and still 
folded, but green not dried about 1/2"x 1/2".

It is entirely possible the etiolated plant is mislabeled.  Hard to keep 
labels in the pots here.

I have not removed the tuber from soil to determine examine the roots.

Any thoughts, speculations or questions, anyone?
