Hmmm I am sure there is ways to import plants, but it might not be worth the cost though. *Not yet anyways.
That was a long time to wait. I sure hope I don;t have to wait that long. Egads thats long.
5 years! Holy cow! That's an eternity. Oh I hope I don't have to wait that long. Man...
Well I am trying to follow the advice from the ICPS's seed germination for tuberous Drosera. Placing the seed on a sheet of printer paper, I lightly sanded the seed with 120 grit sand paper until I could see a little of the outer coating come off. The seed looked dull and, well, sanded after I got done. They have been sitting in dry soil since early August on my porch. It was good and hot. The weather is changing (slightly) now, so I am thinking October would be a good month to start wetting the soil. May the cp gods have mercy on my ignorant soul....
I found that gigantea is a species that should be kept at least a little wet year round. Keeping it for some time of the year under dry conditions and then try to make look like "The wet" as the Aussies say was probably the reason why it took so long to germinate.
