  1. My vft's and sarras are going dormant too, despite hot (and not usually) temperature for the end of september, sunday 23 above 30 degrees. But now are getting cooler and typical temperature for the time of the year.

    Dionaea leaves turn brown

    Hi Eric, for red spider mites you have to use a specific product, normal insecticide usually doesn't work for them.

    about D. linearis

    Hi guys, i got this plant since may of this year. Was very little as it arrived, but after some good feeding it started to grow well, reaching about 3 cm in length of the leaves. Now it's shrinking, i know this plant has a short vegetative period, so the cause could be the plant is going into dormancy despite the hot temperature? I live in north Italy and winter can be cold, usually -4 C, or never go below 0, are these temperature enough cold? Does anyone knows if leaf cutting work? Thank you all!

    is this S. Leucophylla?

    No, it'a a hybrid between purpurea and leucophylla. Probably a x mitchelliana like Alexis wrote.

    Twisted Pitchers - Help Please

    Hi, a thrips attack almost bleach the pitchers, usually aphids puncture do this kind of damage, provado should take care of these "lovely" critters.
  11. Hi, maybe is just an accumulation of anthocyanins, the responsible substance of the red pigmentation.

    Do you cut your Darlingtonia down

    I was about to ask the same question. Mine are still young so i think i will cut only the dried pitcher, but maybe cutting down the plant could stimulate the new grow.
