    Lay the roots out horizontally when you cover them as this seems to stimulate offshooting .
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Do I just lay them on top of the soil uncovered or do I burry them horizontally

    Thanks a ton J. That is greatly appreciated I've lost a lot of stuff this winter. I was afraid of stuff drying out and over watered. I've definitely learned my lesson

    You want them covered. The Binata/Dichotoma complex dies down to the root if it gets cold enough. Most will survive frost but probably not the pot freezing solid. They are about as hardy as D. capensis and the fertile ones about as invasive/weedy

    I potted those roots up this morning. Covered them with about 1/8 inch of peat:sand mix in a water tray. Now it's just the waiting game right?

    Yup

    I've got some spare "extrema" if they don't make it. But binata are a pretty hardy bunch.
