    8 monthes... geez... I'll be half way done my last year of high school... almost... wow... well, congradulations. Personally, I dont like the tall, creepin/climby sundews, because i dont have any place to grow them, but they sure are pretty... Once again, congrats on that long wait!

    Peter D'amato surely has more experience than I have :-)

    But I still can't imagine a tuberous sundew never dieing back.

    These plants certainly require a dry summer dormancy despite what D'Amato has said. Not to worry though, they will do as they will, no need to force anything. The critical thing is when they start to look like they are dying is to allow the drying process to continue slowly, so the nutrient reserves in the leaves may be transferred to the developing tubers. The process should continue until the soil is bone dry, at which point it should be stored in a dry place out of direct sun where there is no chance of the pot getting wet. Then it is a matter of hoping the seedlings were able to form the tubers needed for growth in the cooler fall weather. Congratulations on your success, mine did not germinate despite the use of Ga3, so I have dried the pots out and will try again in the fall.
