    Thanks very much Ian!
  5. Hello, I am hoping someone may have some advice for me here as I have 4 or so pots that haven't put on any new growth this year yet. I cut off all the dead growth from over winter in early spring and have seen little to no significant growth on any of them. They are alive and green, but the new growth points are so tiny and barely doing anything. I am wondering if I should pull them all out, wash off the roots, divide them up and remove any dead matter and pot them up in fresh media, even though it's entirely the wrong time of year to be doing so ordinarily. It doesn't look like I can expect much from them as is, but I guess my question here is, will doing so kill them completely, or is it worth a shot? Of course, other suggestions are very welcome! I have a leucophylla and flava var. Cuprea in there that I'd love to see back. The rest are expendable garden centre bought hybrids that I won't mourn too much in the event that I kill them completely! Thanks in advance!

    Hi everyone! My name is Tea & I am happy to be here! I just joined up today as I am hoping to network a little and get to know fellow growers of these fascinating plants. I have been growing carnivores for several years outdoors/in cold frames here in the UK and more recently, I have set up some indoor grow lights in order to focus on some of the more delicate plants that require more specific light, temperature and humidity parameters. I would say that my favourite genera are Drosera, Utricularia and Pinguicula most recently, but I have a long-term and deep appreciation for pitchers of all types. I am hoping that by joining up here, I can learn some cultivation tips and techniques that will help me take my hobby to the next level and make all of my plants happy and healthy! So, that's pretty much it! Thank you for having me & I look forward to talking to some of you here :)
