    I have it on good authority (my wife and daughter) that I am difficult. I don't have to try! I'll go with the peat as the seeds have already had enough experimenting done to them. I put them in a 2oz deli container with some water to germinate back in July and they got pushed behind some other plants. Out of sight - out of mind. Found them Saturday and they were still alive but stunted, so I thought I'd plant them and see what I get.

    sorry to bump this up but where does the dieback start ? at the bottom up ? or other way around.

    my tuber (d.peltata spp. ariculata) still a seedling, is dieing back. I increased the light so i think its going into dormacy. the avrge day temps are 80-95F (lol whoops). Imma start drying out the pot so that it'll get used to soil being bone dry.

    After dormancy (if i did it correctly) do they make growth without water ? then continue growing them normally ?

    EDIT: nvm its not dieing back -.- its just coloration in the stem and the leaves still have dew

    Die back starts from the top down on the upright species.

    After dormancy, the plants can start growth before being watered. I often look for growth to show before putting the pots back in the tray

    i hate to say this but yours might be a gonner...
    first of all, when potting up tuberous dews, it is best to use a dry or barely damp media. do everything normal as you would for getting a pot ready for planting, but let it dry out after.
    potting a tuberous dew in an already wet media, especially if it is not ready to break dormancy, will cause it to rot (im taking this inference from your bladderwort reference).
    watering usually commences in an increasing frequency when a stem forms out of the eye of the tuber.
    tubers should be firm, and not wilted like a raisin- even if it's black, if it's firm, it's still viable.

    ok i seperated everything i could and this is what i got out, they had kinda of a single long tap with a bulb at the bottom i guess this was the tuber.
    i cleaned everything i could and rinsed them clean, repotted and this is now about 10 -14 days. think they are growing.
    when should i let them start the dormant thing , they are starting the growth cycle right?
