  3. I'd just like to publically thank Welshy for the recent R.Soper I receieved from him. Not only was the plant in fantastic condition, it was also despatched incredibly quickly. On top of that he gave massive amounts of advice throughout the process and helped me understand exactly what conditons it would need upon arrival. One of my prized possesions in my collection now. So thank you!

  4. I've never heard about using fibre pots for Dionaea, only for young Drosophyllums. Totally not needed in your case. Best thing to do is show us a photo of your plant when it arrives and we can advise you if you need to repot it or not. I use 4 part peat to 1 part perlite but lots of people have different recipes with success. I only use that as it's what it said in Peter D'Amato's The Savage Garden when I started out. It's always worked for me so that's what I do.

  5. I also use it earlier on in the season ,the dosage i use is 1.5g per 500ml water , and it is after all recommended by Californian Carnivores so i really do not think that you are going to harm your plants in using it !

  7. I use it and it's safe. Half a teaspoon per 4.8L water applied as a foliar spray.

  8. I installed a fan when I first came across this problem with other plants. I soon discovered another benifit ... The glass is clear from about an hour after the lights (and fan) come on and so I get to see my plants all day, through nice fan assisted, clear glass. Something any budding 'terrarium' enthusiast should consider. No good having a terrarium where you cannot see the contents. Get a fan. Any old suitable, size wise, fan will do. Just a constant gentle air flow through the terraium is fine.

  9. Lovely cephalotus there, yeah I would put it in a couple cm of water and let the tray dry for a day or two and then fill the tray again, should beer fine this way. From the lovely red pitchers I would say it wasn't grown in low light so I would say it's the humidity that has caused it, nothing to worry about as the new pitchers will be fine. Have a great time with your new cephalotus Mark
