A couple of times now I've tried growing filiformis outside in Toronto. Once in a bog, once in a pot. Both times, healthy plants that I've received in the spring have flowered then died. They start declining in July and by August they're gone. I have some rotundifolia in the same pot as the filiformis and they are doing wonderfully this year. They originally came from central Ontario. The filiformis came to me from members in Quebec and BC.
Just wondering what other people's experience is. Is filiformis unsuited to Toronto or am I unsuited to filiformis?
I've heard on other forums that a numerous amount of people stated that their D. Filiformis were fairly short lived ( 1-2 years). Mainly the "Florida Red" variety. Never tried them myself but I recently sowed a pot of D.Filiformis Tracyi seeds, so I'll also be growing the species outside next spring. I heard they like to be well fed, but that shouldn't be a problem if you're growing them outside.

chrisrichard: SCAM ALERT--Don't buy from Pearl River Exotics in Georgia. What they advertise on their website IS NOT WHAT U GET!!! I've learned from my horrible experience+am sharing with everyone, so you don't get ensnared in the same trap of false advertising by them.
