    Hey guys!
    I asked Mitch a while ago but i wanted to see what others have to say. How do you germinate D. peltata and other Tuberous dews?
    thanks

    You sow in early fall and they should germinate when the temps drop in winter.

    I just placed my seed on top the soil.
    Since they form tubers deep in the soil I use tall pots. They are 3 to 4" in diamater and 8 - 9" tall.
    I grow my plants on the south facing windowsill.
    Could take 2 years till they start to climb.
