Deflasking Drosera hartmeyerorum, A followup
Two weeks ago I posted about removing Drosera hartmeyerorum from a Tissue Culture flask and potting it up into some live Sphagnum on top of a standard Drosera Peat/Sand mix.
Anyway here is a followup report. It was an unmitigated egregious failure.
I screwed up royally. I don't know what I did but 2 weeks later, all that's left is a puddle of grey and black goo where the plant used to be. The live Sphagnum looks OK. The growing media under that looks OK, no problem. I emailed the seller but don't really expect an answer.
My best guess is that I didn't wash it adequately. I know I washed it several times with several water changes. I soaked it for over 2 hours with 2 additional water changes. Maybe it needed several days rinse time to remove all the agar gel.
Anyone out there ever try Drosera hartmeyerorum from Tissue Culture? Jump in, tell me where I went wrong.
