    D. hookeriana Stem

    *Sorry, I meant D. hookeri.

    So I generously received some D. hookeri tubers from kula a while back. I have been lucky enough to get a lot of them to sprout. However, I had this pot in my cool basement, and was waiting for them to pop up. It looks like I missed the mark though, because the stems have kept growing out of the soil, fooled by the dark basement! They were kept very lightly moist in a bag, in dark, cool conditions. Currently, I have them unbagged and sitting on my windowsill. They get 8 hours of light, and temps from 69F-60F. The humidity stays around 50%, and they are now being kept in a little tray of water.

    So what do I do to get them growing normally? All the others I had were in lighted conditions, so they are fine.

    Looking good. It's Drosera hookeri though, not hookeriana.

    Will this grow normally? All the others begin with rosettes. Sorry for the naming error.
