I got a tuber of a mature location data tuberous sundew.
Drosera menziesii ssp. basifolia
Wongan Hills, WA




It is my first tuberous drosera, any idea on how to store the tubers and how wet they like their soil. Also does it need full sun, can I grow it outside in zone 8 or should I put in in my unheated greenhouse and shelter it from the elements such as wind and rain?
And is a 50/50 mixture of peat moss and perlite okay, I would use sand but I think it will be easy to distinguish the tubers of this plant from perlite as they are rather red.
