    I understand what you mean by red and green being the same and any green being "aint dead".

    I won't tell if you don't! Plants don't read nomenclature?

    Keep an eye on the trade forum. I should have them posted for trade on Saturday.

    For some reason they just keep coming for me. I didn't even manage to kill them early this spring when I forgot to bring them in one night. I woke up the next morning to see them under two inches of wet snow. A few of them bit the dust, but most of them survived.

    As you mentioned earlier, the problem is that you probably kept them too wet. Here is a photo of my D. scorpioides. Gemma were planted in fall 2002. They did not flower in Spring 2003, but formed gemma in the Fall. They flowered in Spring 2004, produced gemma in Fall 2004, flowered again in Spring 2005, and are now getting ready to produce gemma this Fall. It will be interesting to see how many more years they will live.

    More photos and the story of these plants can be found at

    So that's what healthy D. scorpioides look like. I think like Jim, I kept mine too wet and in too deep of a pot initially. They are in that same pot however now I let them dry out between waterings. This summer (when kept too wet) the stems shriveled up and several leaned over. I left them on the dryer side and secondary roots developed from the upper green portions of the stems and dove into the soil. Now the tops are thriving again and looking much better. Inside now the photoperiod is 10 hrs. and temps around 60. Will this induce flowering or gemmae ?

    Nice pics and article Bob. Like the way you showed the different growth layers.

    Mine are growing in various containers 3" to 5" deep. I water them thoroughly, then allow the soil to dry slightly before watering again. The only time I lost plants, was when they got snowed on this last spring. Most of them recovered though.

    Would you say that media depth is also an imprtant factor? Mine were only in 2" media, not knowing any better at the time.
