Two cases to prove that these plants are just nuts overall.
1) Three years ago I sowed out seed for D. ramellosa. Nothing happened, nothing happend, nothing happened. This morning I was going to throw out the pot and move something new into it and what do I find?? 8 sprouts!!. This pot has been in a bag so nothing else could have accidentally gotten into it. 3 YEARS to get germination!!
2) Last year I potted up a single D. platypoda tuber. I planted it smack dab in the center of the pot (so I'd know where to look for growth.) It grew but was very tiny, 0.5cm across at most. It went dormant as it should and I dried the pot with all the others and set it aside. This winter it was a little slow to start and I thought I had lost it but finally life emerged from the center of the pot again. And also from opposite corners of the pot! Now I know that tuberous Drosera are sometimes known to branch off spare tubers but how/why can/would a plant that was no more tha 0.5cm get enough extra material to form 2 new tuber plus whatever runners sent them to opposite sides of the pot? And if it had all that extra energy then why is it that the "parent" is still tiny while the new progeny are growing like weeds?!
Freaks I tell you.
