Drosera Menziesii Tuber?

by Darkrai283 » Sun Sep 25, 2011 8:19 pm

Guys, I've got a question. I got a free drosera menziesii tuber from triffid nurseries and it said that it was already 'adapted to the northern hemisphere'
I already know the basic requirements to start growing them but I'm just a little confused on WHEN to 'sow' them if they are already adapted to the northern hemisphere.

Thanks
Richard

Well most if, not all tuberous sundews grow during the cool winter months. Depending on how cold you temperatures are over there I would plant it now. If it's too cold I would grow it under lights. :D

-Well actually I was there, and that's how I know the dinosaurs rode off into space.
-You weren't there!
-Well how do you know, you weren't there,were you?

So jim, where do you grow them? Outside, warm greenhouse, under lights, windowsill etc.
