    Sarracenia flowers but No pitcher's?

    And if the flowers have been pollinated some plants will sulk big time

    S. Flava seeds not growing

    Why on earth did you not sow the seed on carnivorous compost in a pot and placed in a warm sunny spot? All the information online would tell you to do this.
  3. Looking good, you will have to post some more pics especially directly face on so we can see the shape and colours

    Seller, rhizome divisions and no roots...

    It's no an ideal situation but I pull of plenty of crowns by mistake, quite often I just poke them in to the soil but moss just a better choice

    Seller, rhizome divisions and no roots...

    They can and do root easily I prefer to pot them up with moss around the rhizome ...

    I do not think your melcourt mix is correct last time I spoke with Mike he told he had changed the mix to 1 part melcourt 1 part perlite 1 part small granite grit. I used his first receipe (cannot remember the mix) which several sarracenia died and dionaea looked really rough, he said it was too heavy for the dionaea and I needed to pot them lightly. I have done small trial and the sarracenia are growing fine. I have not tied dionaea in the revised version I have been told to try. so David is this the mix you are using Mike has advised to use?

    Does F88MK shoot blanks?

    I had plenty of pollen from mine and have splashed it around a bit and pollinated the plants also.

    Water

    Agreed rain water is best but if your collection is small you can buy RO water from an aquarium shop just ask for very clean water with a reading below 100 but closer to 0 is better. You will be surprised how much water you will need so plan a head before buying lots of plants.
