Whatโ€™s the best way to transplant the baby corms?

I have about 5 babies, already with leaves, on this Alocasia and I want to transplant them. What is the best way? Doing some research before I start digging around on her. Thanks in advance for any advice!

There used to be a LOT of hubbub about #corms! If @RJG is around, I know he has had success with them and he knows a bunch of other folks who have as well. (:

Woo hoo #Tennessee!!
I am currently propagating about 15 different corms. 13 in water which have all sprouted successfully. I did 2 in perlite that havenโ€™t done much yet. Itโ€™s been about 3 weeks.
@GreenIvy3 all of the babies that I see already have leaves, so I know they have roots. Should I just pull them away from the root ball? One just pulled right out of the dirt for me and I already have that in some perlite and soil. Thanks for the help! Good luck on your corms!
My apologies, I thought you were growing from corms. But yes, you can just pull them and pop them in soil. Iโ€™ve done this with a couple of my alocasia babies. Some made it but a few did not.
@GreenIvy3 no apologies necessary. I shouldโ€™ve been more clear. Iโ€™m a brand new Alocasia Mama, so I didnโ€™t even know how to ask honestly. ๐Ÿคช Thank you! ๏ฟผ
@Briska no worries. Welcome to the Alocasia clubโ€ฆ.they are awesome!
