    Vitax Irish peat

    Im using Erin Irish moss peat. Has anyone tried that, and if so, how did it go?
  2. Has anyone used Erin Irish Moss Peat?
  3. I have a few Sarracenia that have rather unfortunately got a bad dose of mealy bug in the roots. Years ago I grew cacti and the best way to treat root mealy bugs on cactiwas to submerge the roots into a bowl of methylated spirits, let them dry and then re-pot. Is this treatment safe to use on Sarracenias? If not, what is the best way to treat this?

    I'm still waiting for my first Sarracenia flower to open, plenty in bud but no flowers as yet.

    Sarracenia x Danas Delight

    I'm looking for S x Danas Delight, if anyone has one for sale.
  12. I have found some mealy bugs on the crown of some of my plants. On cacti, I use methylated spirits to eradicate mealy bugs - but is it safe to use this on cp's?

    Ceph pitcher turning yellow?

    I dont let my Cephs stand in water. I was advised to water from above and then tip away any water that collects in the tray / saucer. To date, all has gone well and not had any problems so my guess is it's got something to do with standing in the water.
