Grow it outdoors - in pure peat - feed it (15-4-14 , 5% sulfur) - then.......




edit by Maggi : leaving this Lewisia  thread here because of the great Rhodos growing around Jens' giant tweedyi!

Good Lord, is that a rhododendron around it?
(Forty one people have viewed this fabulous plant/picture, yet only two have commented? How can they resist?)

So your peaty soil or pure peat with feeding is obviously the right answer for Lewisia tweedyi. I'll try my most recent seedlings in a new spot. :D
