I want to kill my dog today. I wouldn't normally say that as he literally is my baby. I went out the back to fling some water at my plants only for the little sod to pee up my Darlingtonia right in front of me. Naturally he got screamed at. After moving the plant from its saucer I can see that it's been going on for a few days. I had to hose off the pot and flushed it through with several litres of rain water.

I can only put this down to the fact that my landlord had to demolish the back wall about ten days ago as it was leaning so much it was threatening to fall down. Since he did it the dog has been too scared to go far down the garden as the soft git doesn't feel safe.

Plant now moved to the top of an old patio table with all the plants I got from Ian and Dianne.
