  2. Results! I've taken some cuttings of my D. paradoxa by gently pulling several leaves at the same time, in order to include the basal parts. This allowed me to keep the mother plant intact, or almost, as I repotted it at the same time. I've placed the fragments in a small box with sphagnum and a lot of water, without cover (I tried with cover but I have fungi attack within a few days) in my lowland terrarium. After about 1.5 month, I saw something sprouting. And yes, after a couple more week, I confirm it's a small Drosera. Growing very quickly, actually. I'm not going to start a n

  3. Hi I use pure neem oil 100% After cold stratification for six weeks I use clover spagnum moss peat (fine) dampen peat not to wet. sprinkle seeds on top do not cover seeds need light use a very fine spray bottle, pure neem oil sets in the bottle,when you recieve it you have to place bottle in warm water till it liquidfys place about 6 drops in to a litre spray bottle ad a drop of soft soap spray seeds be careful not to wash seeds away Need oil is also good for the control of aphid,green fly ..

  6. The drosera seed are like dust,just sprinkle them on the compost,if you get germination you can thin them out later. BTW i always give a watering to the compost from the top before i sow my seed. sarracenia seed are treated just the same but are larger and you can place them individually if you want.if you've bought them you might not have that many anyway. I have hundreds and just spread them across the surface of a 9cm pot and let them get on with it. VFT'S just the same,they will all germinate when the weather warms up in spring.

  8. Most of my older plants vine, flower and have basals but just seem to lose vigour progressively and either die or may as well have died. I'm massively impressed your plants lasted as long as they have. Younger plants I had went nowhere, but repotting and raising winter temperatures to 14oC has worked wonders. Whether they are naturally weedy 'live fast die young' I don't know. Maybe in cultivation there is an increasing chance of endemic disease of one kind or another. It's extreme, but maybe chucking the lot, sterilising the greenhouse and starting again with a brace of simple favourites
