I am growing this plant for the first time in my cool greenhouse (winter minimum 5 C). It is growing in a pot and is thriving, standing in a little rainwater in a saucer.
A quick search on the forum suggests I should keep it dry in the winter, which will help it to flower.
How dry is dry? Bone dry? Just damp?
Advice gratefully received :thumbsup:

just damp. I grow a layer of Sphagnum on top of mine, which is a good indicator, if it goes white it is too dry.

Thank you for having asked question, because for me also it is the first year when I cultivate this plant in cold green house, and I did not know how to water it.

But, I chose to put it under a cloth of cold season, to take no risk for this year.
