    Tuberous Drosera pics

    Thought I'd add some of my own after all the ones I have seen recently

    D. macrantha. 3rd year from seed





    D. ramellosa. 2nd year from seed



    D. stolonifera. This was actually my first tuberous. I started with a tuber about the size of a BB. The tubers for these guys this year were just about the size of a full sized jelly bean

    There is still some time for germination though odds are it'll have to be a short season for anything that does come up. Might want to try exposing the pots to temps of 5C or so if you can. I have heard that can help.

    I do have gigantea but right now it looks like nothing more than a mutant asparugus because it has not opened out any. Guessing it is going to do a repeat of last year when it grew all up but refused to open out till well into March and then hung around until August before dropping back to dormancy. Definitly an oddball of a plant.

    Pyro what F temp is 5 C? I am too tired for the conversion right now. ATM the pots are outside and have been since I planted them. It is too cold for them out there? I thoght they liked the cold. The water they have been sitting in has been frozen a time or two.

    5C = ~40F

    I would shoot to avoid freezing them, seedlings are very fragile and a frost would likely destroy them.
