  1. Yea the VFT don't look too happy. I would cut the flower stalk on the ones that didn't get to that size. I don't think they can afford a flower stalk at the moment. They need more light for sure and air flow. I would suggest a peat + perlite mix and let it dry slightly before waterings. But you can experiment with sphagnum moss if you want. Since you said growing outside is out of question, I would suggest a setup like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saCV-Dii5Ic
  2. I don't think VFT are good for terrarium, I'm not saying you can't make it work but usually it kinda suffers. My first few vft died because i grew them indoors and they died of fungi, lack of air circulation. The light is also very important. If you can't grow them outside then I suggest getting them out of the terrarium, put them under grow lights in a place with some fans for good air circulation. There is no reason to keep them in terrarium since they don't need the humidity, I grow mine outside in full sun scorch heat and they flourish ( ofc the soil is wet, tho i let it dry a little bit before watering again ) The humidity in your terrarium and lack of air circulation is creating the mold. As I mentioned before, my first VFT were grown in a pretty aerated room and they still died to fungi. Once I solved these problems, now my VFT flourish. So yea, get it under good growlight with some fans or smth. Also are they out of dormancy or still in? P.S. Some photos would be useful to see your setup.
  3. Glad to hear about this
  4. any practical reason you grow Cephalotus like that? is there any beneficial thing to it? Awesome plants!
  5. i think it's the other one, the one who is white-ish with a black spot.
  6. I'll try that, I'm ordering one bottle and i'm going to try it. Spider mites are my nightmare, I'm starting to have dreams of them killing my entire collection of plants.
  7. Awesome! I'm looking forward for the release day of the podcast :)
  8. What do I do about the adult ones?
  9. Anyone knows a good miticide against spider mites? My drosera spatulata has some spider mites and the miticide that I have burns the plants. If anyone knows a place within EU where I can buy it ( preferably not too expensive) I would appreciate it a lot.
  10. The sarracenia northwest podcast didn't stop but it's only once / month and it's short, like 15-20 min long. They call it podcasts but it's more of an update in my opinion. Here is the latest from this month https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erpqnAAxp-s That said, I would love an actual podcast, it would be a blast. I'm sure other CP growers would love it too. There's one podcast that sometimes talks about CP but it's mostly about all plants, it's called InDefenseOfPlants. If you create a well detailed, well researched podcast, you won a viewer in me :) . As for the poll, I would like to see all of those topics, so I can't vote 1 in particular, since all of them seems of value.
  11. oh so not all of it is yours. I thought this was on your property where your house is located.
  12. You have one of the most amazing Nepenthes I've ever seen. How big is your greenhouse? do you have a photo from the outside?
  13. Looks ready for some divisions. What sarracenia is this btw?
  14. I love it for many reasons. One of them, big leathery pitchers, it looks beautiful, it's probably the nepenthes that shows carnivory the best. Some of the growers I know found mice, some even sparrows ( it seems to have a thing for mice...). All in all, it's my favorite Nepenthes of them all, it's a beast!
  15. Got one also and was thinking exactly the same. My pot seems full with seedlings so I'll see in the spring if that is so, if not I'll just repot it.
