    Repot it as an dormant tuber NOT as a growing plant. The pure peat could be a problem and prevent tuber formation.
    It's always better to do some reseach before(!) obtaining a new plant.

    How is it possible that someone can't find a picture of it on the net ???
    Try for excample Bob's excellent new Photofinder :

    but also google.com will show you lots of pics...

    Under what conditions do you grow your Drosera gigantea ?

    "...you can buy a big mature plant for about 25 - 50 dollars at california carnivores ..."

    Are you sure ?
    I can only find Drosera regia on their webpage. This is a completly(!) different sundew.

    I will side with Martin on this, I have a few tiny plants grown from tubers that were about 2-5mm when I got them. They grow slow and seem to die at the drop of a hat

    Well as I said I didn't really expect any germination, and I couldn't find any decent cultivation info on the web. Anyway we'll see how it goes, at the worst I've wasted .85.

    Anyway its forming a new leaf so maybe it will do okay. Also, why do you say that the peat will inhibit tuber formation? Is it to do with the moisture or the acidity of the soil? The peat isn't very wet, only moist.

    I grew this for one season and I can say with assurance that this is not an easy species. It did well enough (I grew from a tuber) but despite careful attention to allowing it to go dormant slowly and maintaining dry dormant conditions, it failed to return this season.
