  1. new members posting crap

    directed in the right direction? its a carnivorous plant forum ffs! not even a post about how do i keep my vft alive or my capenensis has no dew why? i think someone joined the wrong forum, they need guiding out of the backdoor ada
  2. can the mods or admin do something about new members posting crap! seriously we don't need bombarding with rubbish ada
  3. Sickly Drosera

    i think that's your problem,nothing in moss at all,no trace elements,no minerals nowt! they are starving. its only a drosera that usually is a weed in collections but give it a chance and pot it in something with a bit of substance ada
  4. Martin,i think its a poor year for leuco pitchers this year,lots of flowers in spring has used all their energy i think,
  5. i just got some that was on offer,but it said it would last 25years. 2 inch screws are a bit big,i'd go with 1 1/2 inch
  6. quarter inch plywood base,3 or 4 inch wide timber for the sides then line it with pond liner
  7. Cephalotus follicularis And Hummers Giant

    I'd go with root rot.Was it the european hummers? if so mine did the same end of last year,i left it alone all winter and spring,nothing happened.I was pulling it out to plant another ceph in the pot and found little green shoots about 5mm down,so just chucked the soil back on,now its back with about 5 new growth points.

  12. P. grandiflora help required

    A lot depends on the heat.They go dormant even earlier if it gets too hot and start to grow again in autumn when it cools down sometimes. My pings are mostly going or gone dormant now but a few are still growing but much more slowly now,getting ready for dormancy.

  14. Sarracenia Seedlings

    they'll be fine,leave them alone until next year. they can stand frost too. when they grow some new pitchers next year,repot them after 2or 3 pitchers.
