    Tuberous drosera seeds can take very long to germinate(up to 3 years) although some like auriculata and peltata germinate much faster(within months) if they are sown fresh.

    Oo, I want one!! This plant is on my wishlist. I particularly like it because it tends to cement some of its leaves to nearby objects as it climbs! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Do you have enpough space for it ?

    My Dr. macrantha 'swamp form' has reached almost 2m !

    A bit too big for me.

    I don't have a picture of the whole plant :-(

    very nice plant martin! mine are just lil sprouts with one or two dewy leaves. after they get alittle bigger, immma transfer em to a 2 gallon pot each. should i wait till theuy mture for a dormancy? i heard for any sundew needing a dry dormancy, if they r kept wet, they will grow on like a sub tropical. is that true?

    "...if they r kept wet, they will grow on like a sub tropical. is that true?"

    Where did you hear this ?

    I only tried to keep drosera auriculata moist year around...
    They died back but the tubers didn't rot.
    I also ahve some Drosera auriculata "accidently" growing in a pot of Darlingtonia.

    If someone understands German, than you can find the whole story (and some pics) here :
    http://www.drosophyllum.com/deutsch/versuche.htm

    I didn't try this with any other tuberous spezies....

    I'm very happy that I don't have to take care for them during summer.
    This is the main reason why I'm going to spezialise on this Drosera (the best cps if you are travelling alot during summer :-) )
    Martin
