    You mean like this one I found on my Dionaea 'Akai Ryu'? They can apparently change color between yellow and white depending on what flowers are available, though the process can take several weeks.

    That tuber looks just like a little tomato. Do you unpot all your tuberous sundews for dormancy?

    This is my first year growing tuberous sundews. The D. zigzagia I bought this spring and it apparently didn't like the shipping process and went dormant extremely early. I unpotted it to try to get a feel for the moisture level of the soil based on the appearance of the pot and to make sure the plant didn't just die on me rather than going dormant. I have two other plants I bought at the same time which went dormant at a more normal time and I left them in their pots. The D. ramellosa I traded for and I believe it also went dormant quite early so it's not a surprise to see either of them growing right now.

    I always had the impression this species was rather boring, but it's growing some nice pitchers!

    Close-up of the unusual patchy peristome. I'm wondering if it might actually be staining from the nectar, as that appears to have a similar brownish color to it.

    My sanguinea gets that too, not sure what it is either. Also, those are some nice photos of the tubers! I haven't unpotted the rest of my D. ramellosa tubers, so hopefully they haven't dried up. I sometimes give them a little watering, maybe about 1 fluid ounce or so, every 3 weeks. They seem to be a little harder to dry up than you'd expect though, those D. zigzagia tubers you gave me are pretty good being dry in the bag (with the little humidity that there is in there, though I'd expect soil to retain more humidity than what's in the bag).

    This reminds me, that I need to find a bigger pot for my D. menziesii, which I also have not dug up. I'll see if I can get you a tuber or two, for September's meet. I don't expect them to start growing then, since they went dormant so late.

    I went ahead and potted my tubers back up since they were growing early. Since it's been so hot, I've been using ice cubes to prevent the pots from heating up too much and ended up with the soil quite a bit more wet than I wanted to. Hopefully it's not too early for it to be wet like that, though I've been told you should start watering before you see new growth on the surface.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the pots drying out though. When the surface dries out it heavily insulates the rest of the pot and it takes a very long time for the rest to dry out. I've been giving my dormant pots a quick squirt from a squeeze bottle every week or two. One of my pots had some U. bisquamata and it took TWO MONTHS without water before it finally (hopefully) died.
