    It could be you're overwatering too. Most tuberous sundews go dormant during the summer and need dry conditions. Too wet will rot the tuber and too dry the tuber will dry out. Some like D. gigantea will survive damp/wet conditions during dormancy. See this thread on Pyro's tuberous sundew growing tips

    Mine never lasted long enough to make it to the summer. :P

    ...then again... with the lighting... the seedlings could have possibly thought it was summer?

    I did basically as pingman - sow in late summer and kept in the attic, now an unheated window sill, where they are kept cold and wet. Nothing fancy added.

    Ahhh.. think the ones I just ordered will last until the end of the summer? Or maybe I can skip the first dormancy.

    Dormancy in these plants is no like dormancy in a Sarr or VFT, you can not induce the plant to skip. When the plant decideds to go dormant it will and there is not a thing you can do to stop it or slow it down.

    It is possible to sow now and get successful germination and even good growth but you will have to provide very high light for the seedlings to give them the strength they will need to for a proper tuber by summer, if you don't then odds are you will end up with an out of cycle plant. Not a huge issue if you know how to synch it back up but if you are just breaking in on these species it can be difficult.

    Crap, I have once again made a mistake. Yay for me.

    How long do D. auriculata seeds last in the fridge? x_x
