    Good luck! I'm interested in growing linearis and peltata (along with other tubers) in the future and I'd love to be able to learn from your experiences.

    I have quite a few tuber seeds (growlist -> italicized), so if I'm successful with anything, I'll let you know Well, everyone will be hearing about it, to be honest, haha. I'm gonna be awfully proud.

    If you find Darlingtonia and highland species a challenge to grow in Florida then D. linearis will be doubly so.

    Tuberous seed requires a great deal of patience and it may take up to 3 years to germinate. D peltata has a reputation for being the easiest to grow of the tuberous species - much more forgiving on moisture while in the tuber stage. Most need to be bone dry but a few need some moisture.

    Josh - you're at a good latitude to grow D. linearis. You could probably leave them outdoors year round.

    Trying not to hijack here but are the tubers themselves easier/quicker to grow from than seeds?

    As for linearis, I considered them when setting up my bog but it seemed like it wasn't an easy plant to keep even if you give it long winters.

    It's my understanding that the best bet to grow them is from seed, since they don't handle transplanting well, although I've seen then shipped when they're tubers.

    Tubers are definitely easier to start with unless you get them from a source across the equator. Then the challenge is keeping the plants alive while you resync their growth patterns to the season shift.

    Tuber season is drawing to a close in the Northern Hemisphere.
