    Sarracenia growing in pure sphagnum

    They are tough as old boots and will make more roots anyway. Ian.

    Sarracenia growing in pure sphagnum

    Yes they do grow great in pure Sphagnum but never let the tray dry out in Summer or you will find a crispy plant that will fall over.

    Dionaea summer problems.

    Too much saturation and lack of air flow combined with heat will stew and rot plants quicker than they can grow. Too much perlite means less water retention so the watering is more frequent. Taller pots work well as there is a ready supply of water at the roots but the crown is higher up and drier so less chance of stagnation and rotting. If you chose to stop using sand or perlite completely then you will find that when the tray dries up the pots will retain just enough moisture without suddenly going dry. Pot your plants quite loose, compaction means saturation. And finally, if the roots rot the plant will turn into one big cutting budding everywhere. Ian.

    Cultivars revert to standard traps

    Hi. What are your growing conditions like. Light levels, media etc.. Ian.

    Underrated/Overrated Cultivars?

    If you like a plant and not many others do then it is underrated and the reverse if you don't like a popular clone. It's purely a matter of personal preference. A Drosera capers is is as worthy as and Adrian Slack clone though.

    Ceph pitcher turning yellow?

    Sorry but it looks done for, the best you can do now is empty it out and see if there is any good material in there. more than half of mine did this recently. (sorry wrote this when I saw your last photo then realised I missed a load of posts)
