    My first tuberous dews

    After a long wait, they finally sprouted. Thank you Johnny for giving me the opportunity to grow these!

    You're very welcome Djoni. You're doing a great job with them ! Be sure to feed them heavily so they have the energy they need for dormancy and to produce daughter tubers.

    That is so cool, and congrats! I wasn't able to last year, but I am hoping this summer that I'll be able to grab some more tubers. I always get nervous with them during dormancy, but then they all pop back up again and reassure me. They survive outside surprisingly well. I had some TINY D. moorei in a 4" pot that were blasted with full sun and 100+F temps this summer and didn't skip a beat.

    One thing I always do is never grow them in standing water. Ever, not even in active growth. Frequent top-watering exclusively.

    I grow all of mine in standing water during the growing season, it doesn't bother them at all. There's even a few species that I keep in very shallow standing water for dormancy.

    Looks great. I can't wait to try some of these, thought I'm more interested in rosetted and scrambling species than the taller ones.

    Update on my first try at growing tuberous dews, 2+ months after the last photos were taken. They seem to be growing good in my garage window under shop lights and I am hoping they flower for me.

    That one is certainly getting large and I imagine they are going to get much taller.
