    Tubers of Drosera gigantea are so deep, that the soil around the tuber never drys out completly.

    Just a little update:

    The first seedling has been growing reasonably fast and now has 4 carniverous leaves with another forming, I also noticed this week a second seedling germinating. They're both still on the pure peat in a plastic bag and they seem fairly happy, good leaf color and dew on the tentacles.

    I figured I'd toss in an update too. After moving my pot of gigantea under my new MH light I am suddenly getting new growth and it looks like a couple other plants a popping up too. I am wondering if it has something to do with the brightness and maybe the warmth. Possibly in the attempt to keept them cool they were too cold

    When I ordered from lowrie last year, he gave me five D. gigantea tubers for free. I did not have room for a plant that big(or five in this case) so I gave them away. However, he had a suprising culture tip he included for them. He said to grow them in pure peat in a bonsai pot(ie a shallow pot). I can't remeber if that was the tray method for that, or not. Too bad I did not have the room. I would have loved to see what it would have done grown like that.

    Regards,

    Joe

    More conflicting culture information! Well at least someone seems to believe in the pure peat approach.
