    Well, I'm impressed......
    I don't really seem to have a lot of luck in getting the tuberous species to stay around, they don't form big enough tubers to go through the summer. I'm jealous.
    And that D. graomogolensis is jaw-dropping. I thought mine was doing really well, but apparently it has a long ways to go
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    The tuberous species of Drosera need copious amounts of food while in active growth in order to properly develop tubers. I feed them several times per week with Maxsea.

    That particular D.graomogolensis is now about 4" across and has produced several other large offshoot plants.

    Impressive update, Johnny. I'm always taken back by how nice those tuberous dews are, and by the sheer diversity of the Australian species. Not many people seem to be growing them - at least, not well.

    Also impressive how quickly you located those Disas!

    Thanks Mat. Many people can't seem to grasp the dormancy requirements of tuberous Drosera and often fail with them. Since they're fairly expensive and relatively uncommon, an initial failure often keeps people from trying their hand at their cultivation a second time. I've made a few good connections in the US with other tuberous growers but, you're right......there doesn't seem to be too many around.

    I actually didn't have a very hard time tracking down the Disa at all. Seems I was a bit late in the season looking for them though since it seems I got some of the last available plants.

    No, it was field collected by John Turnbull in the 1970's. That's the only information I have on it.

    A beautiful display, as always!

    It is nice to see the tuberous 'dews setting up for the winter. And that is the biggest graomogolensis I've ever seen a photo of. 'Looking forward to more as they progress.
