    I realize I am a bit late to this party but I am not on here that frequently anymore. I would like to make a small comment

    This information is not correct, D. gigantea does indeed produce the papery coating. It is however, very thin and very easily displaced so you likely are not seeing it because it is shed/lost when you are unearthing your tubers.


    Your assessment that it prefers a damper dormancy is correct. You will have better luck with this species if you can provide DEEP pots as they tend to hold moisture well in the lower regions. I used to use tap root pots designed for seedling trees - 10cm x 10cm x 50cm. I would still have to repot every other year because the tubers would drop out the bottom (which is very bad if you are trying to keep them damp as the tubers cannot tolerate standing in water even for the very short time frames I used)


    It is nice to see others successfully working with this group of Drosera. I had nearly 40 species/forms before I moved and had to terminate my collection back in 2010.

    With limited cold protection in winter I have hope that tuberous Drosera are totally doable in Georgia. Cannot wait to try more species outside!

    As long as you can keep them from freezing, they should do just fine.
