I will put it in the 5 in pot that I told you about in the last post, is it ok to use the same potting soil that I had for the damaged one?
Shouldn't be any problem using the same soil, as long as the damaged bulb wasn't in there long enough to transmit any soil-borne viruses. If the problem was simple rot, watching the moisture level in the soil will take care of that on its own.
BTW, the sizes of pots sound good; didn't have time to post when you gave that info! sorry.
