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.

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

Plant it now, there starting to pop up for me so i'd get it in soil straight away.

Cool freebie though !
