      I'm more jealous... I have what look like miniature lilies with no aerial leafs within sight.

      I'll share tubers, just have to read how to do it.

      For pond tabs that have crumbled, just place a tab size amount of the fertilizer in a square of toilet paper fold, twist end and quickly push it under the soil before the paper dissolves. Worked well for me and no scum in the water.

      It was so cold here that I started my seeds about 2 weeks later than most, and even then it was still too cold out side so I kept them in the house for another few weeks.

      I only have aerial leaves on one, and it has 7 aerial leaves. It is apparently the most vigorous plant of the lot. I came from one of the seeds from Matherfish.

      mine started out decent, but one since died and the other one is just now getting aerials. nothing like what I had the first time trying a couple years ago. even my returning two have only had one bloom each. I'm suspecting because it's been hot and dry here all summer long. I keep watering, but it's just not the same as rain.

      I plan to move my buckets into the greenhouse that covers my large pond for the winter. Hopefully they will survive in there.

      Nope. One of mine looked like it was doing good then died and the other never really grew.

      How are you guys over wintering these?
      Just take the pot into the garage? Leave water in it? Drain the water?
      Pull out the tubers and let them dry?

      You can just put the pot in your garage with wet soil. You can have water over the soil but you do not have to. Just keep the soil wet. Do not dry the tuber out nor let it get completely dry.
