enter image description here While I was transplanting daffodils I came across this plant that grew upside down, with the base of the bulb sticking out of the ground. Now that I dug it up, How should it be replanted?

I'd split the difference for this year - plant it sideways. I'm just guessing. I've never seen a chthulhudil before. – Ed Staub Jan 26 '12 at 4:39

Replant it roots down and it might stage a comeback. The stem will come about.

The stem has a curve, so it is should be possible to plant it roots down with the stem curving upwards. – winwaed Jan 26 '12 at 13:42

Replant it. Most likely it'll come back.

You could toss it. However, just put it back in the ground wherever it came from.
