Should I treat moldy tubers before potting up?

5 months ago

I saved some tubers but did a poor job of it. I usually do better, but was too busy at the time so I just put them in a plastic bag and said "Que sera sera". They survived and are sprouting but the tubers are shriveled and fuzzy with, I guess, mildew. I want to pot them up to see if they'll survive and to get a head start on the season.

Should I do something about the mildew on the tubers before I pot them up? I'll probably cut some away. Should I dip in a bleach solution? Or won't it matter?
