    the red coats are coming! the red coats are coming!

    U. menziesii ---i've wanted this plant for a super long time...
    i was able to procure tubers back in november. left them in their baggies, then planted them the last week of march. when april came, i placed the pots in an small organizer tray frilled with a cm of water....and left it alone. checked on it today, and found this:



    will update as the plant progresses and hopefully flowers.

    Cheers!

    Oooh that one looks nice! Does it have to go dormant in the winter, or why did you have to hide away the tubers?

    @thez: yes, very similar to tuberous drosera...they have a wet and dry cycle. when dry, they reduce themselves into tiny tubers.

    Just noticed that plants in one of my pots have broken the surface today too. I will be interested to see how yours cope growing through summer.

    Best of luck to you, these guys can be truly brutal on even the best of us growers. And the real kick in the teeth is when you get them through three seasons and have flowers coming up and then the damn slugs discover them...

    hahaha...yes. i am dreading this too. for the most part i will be growing them under fluorescent lighting, indoors, away from a windowsill, so room temps will be much kinder to them. many of my HL plants fuss a little bit during the summer, but summer heat is greatly mitigated by the San Francisco Bay as well as the Pacific ocean so it's not as harsh as most other places.
