    Question:

    For Aussy tuberous dews, how are you supposed to work the seasons while in the northern hemisphere?

    Shouldn't you be growing them in northern hemisphere summer which is the wet southern hemisphere winter growing season? And the tubers' dormancy would then be the northern hemisphere's winter? Errr......something like that..........I think I just confused myself...

    So, what is the scoop?


    *** If I plan to grow a few "easy" tubers from seed here in North America, what is the most advantageous time of the year to sow?

    The trick is to scoot some extra artificial seasons in between the natural ones to trick your plant into going dormant during your local summer. That, or grow them from seed/TC. It's not like they run on an atomic clock - they take cues from the environment like any other plant.

    Seedjar pretty much covered it but if you search the Drosera forum for my username and the term tuberous then youshould find a few posts by me on the topic that should help.

    Jim,

    I go bone dry but try to take a month or so for the pot to reach that state.. Then I bag the whole pot. That said, auriculata and peltata are more tolerant of damp dormancy so you can err on that side if you are worried

    for dormancy for my auric i put the pot outside after it dies back in mostly shade and just let it get watered if it rains and they start to sprout on there own in the fall when temps cool. Then once it gets to cold for it , i bring it onto the bright window i put it every winter where it loves it. I actually have 2 plants growing strong still but the other 10 in the pot went dorment. I didnt start with that many but they actually are producing offsets off the mature plants.

    Good advice from Sean and Pyro, and I might add that the drying off should be as gradual as possible, allowing for the stored sugars in the stems and leaves to be translocated to the corm to fuel next season's growth. Too quick a dry off and the process can't happen.

    I'm crossing my fingers with these two. It's like that trust exercise when your buddies are supposed to catch you when you fall backward!
