Briggsia
« on: October 07, 2012, 09:16:56 AM »
I have only recently started growing Briggsia and after a light 0c frost my plant decided to dry up very quickly and disappear. I was expecting to find a slushy mess in to soil, however i'm delighted to find a number of very healthy tubers which have been moved to a more suitable frost free environment.

If you grow Briggsia, any advice would be freely welcomed.
