    Johnny,
    What are your thoughts on pot size. Are the simple 5x6 fine or would you go deeper?
    It seems that with the rosettes you could almost use tree seedling pots. I've been looking at those. They are around 3x9, but if unnessary I'll stick with the common ones.

    I actually use the 2.38'x 5.0" Anderson Band Pots for small or single specimens and they work just fine. For the rest, I use standard 5"x6" pots. The tubers of many species will eventually work themselves out the holes on the bottom of the pots over time but, since I dig mine up every summer to check on them this isn't an issue for me. If any species could possibly benefit from very deep pots it would be D.gigantea. They can be found down to 3' underground.

    Thanks for answering my questions!

    Last one. For the erects, do you use anything for them to anchor themselves upon? Any benifit that can be seen?

    Also curious. Additionally, which species are most prone to cement themselves to other things?

    No Problem !

    Well, the "erect" species like D.menziesii, D.gigantea, D.modesta etc... are pretty much self supporting. It's the "scrambling" species like D.subhirtella, D.erythrogyne, D.intricata etc.... that really benefit from a support stake. When a stake is placed in the pot, they will inevitably find it and wind their way around it. Without a support stake, the plants will find their way into other adjacent plants and get themselves hopelessly intertwined in the foliage making them impossible to untangle.

    It's actually got flowers starting at the ends of the other 2 growths as well as the central stalk.
