Dionysia 2013
« on: March 22, 2013, 04:57:08 PM »
I am not a specialist in Dionysias. Dionysia bryoides is my only species, but it growing since years with no problems in my alpine house.

Very nice, Ebbie.  Is it planted into the plunge or contained in a pot?

Thanks Maggi. The Dionysia are planted in a plunge, together with other drought-loving plants, for example Onco-Iris. I think there need less care than in a pot.

Ebbie, your Dionysia bryoides is simply wonderful. I am not able to grow it well in a pot, just one or two years. What protection against rain it has? And what maximal temperatures have you in summer?

Hi Zdenek, it stands protected from the rain all year round in my alpine house. Unfortunately, my alpine house is not optimal. On hot summer days the temperature rises despite shading already times on 35 C. I'm amazed that Dionysia bryoides tolerate this. Other Dionysia I could not grow for longer periods.

Thank you Eddie. I see now that I read your text connected to the image not too closely, I am sorry. As regards the growing conditions, yours are almost the same as mine. My Dionysias (I grow more of them) are the whole year in my Alpine House, but in pots which are plunged to the rim in sand. Maximal temperatures are also the same.
