Mr. Lowrie mentioned that the plants will come out of their dormancy in late March. After some time, they will go back down and sprout back up a month later. I’m curious if that’s all there is to it? Is there anything I need to watch out for during this process?
On a more simple note, Mr. Lowrie sent me the Drosera in the form of a rhizome/bulb (I’m not sure what the right term is). The embarrassing thing is, I can’t tell what direction is up. In other words, I’m not sure which way to plant the bulb. I’ve included a picture and I would really appreciate advice on how to identify which way should be facing up. In the off chance that I planted this guy with the “upward side” facing down, what will happen? Would the Drosera die?
One last question, when should I plant this bulb? I just don’t want it to rot if I it ends up sitting in moist soil for too long (especially since I’d be placing it on a heat mat).
Sorry for all the questions, I just want to make sure I do everything right, considering these guys have travelled a long way!
Is the topside visible in the first image or the second?
