    D. Binata Dichotoma giant root cuttings

    Hello guys and gals hope this new season brings about some great growth for us I'm excited. I've taken a few losses over this harsh winter. I'm attempting to save my D. Binata Dichotoma. The hibernacula rotted on me and I was wondering if at all I can propagate this plant using the roots. There is still some white left inside if them. If so how do I go about doing so and getting them to grow?

    I keep this plant outside in my bogs in Boston all winter. While the growth points die off, the plants always grow back from the roots. Just replant them and they should be fine.

    So I can just plant the individual roots into the soil and they'll start growing?

    Yup. I would have recommended that you not dig them up and just leave them be but I see it's a bit late for that.

    Hahaha I kinda panicked since I lost like 3 Sarrs. I have a D. binata Multifida that I won't dig up. Do I completely burry the roots? Or leave a little sticking out?

    D.b.multifida is more tropical. That one may be a goner.
