    I know that these are the commonest CPs going and everyone has seen them before, but this is the first time I have looked closely at these since growing CPs, and I recon I have learnt a lot. I was here for the geology, not the plants and only encountered D. rotundifolia and P. vulgaris but their occurrences interested me. There were almost none of either in bogs along streams or around larger ponds- I think these had too much sheep dung input and so too high in nutrients as they were filled with other bog plants. Most were in small bogs in depressions surrounded by rocks with very little stream input. The Drosera were almost all growing on Sphagnum or rarely other mosses I saw none on pare peat. It seems there were more in the lower, wetter parts but bigger plants were slightly higher and drier. I saw no Pings growing on Sphagnum and most were on bare peat, the exceptions were on a quarry wall where some were growing on non-Sphagnum mosses or onto almost bare rock.

    i have sth similar to the Ankace Growlight (dual head). I use this as a support, not their only source of light and it works well for me. I have highland nepenthes in a south facing window sil, so they get quite a bit of sunlight.

    I’ve just been potting on a few of my darlingtonia seedlings eight months from sowing, five of which under lights. Planted several hundreds, this is one of the biggest, approximately 15 cm across and has just started putting up adult type pitchers. Well pleased.

    Small amounts of mineral salts in the water can gradually build up in the peat from all the water evaporation, so it's a good idea to repot every few years.

    It's doing fine so I'd leave it in the pot it's in and not divide it yet. Although they prefer to be repotted every two to three years for fresh soil so if you can it would benefit from it but it's not crucial this year I think. Also, try to put it in the sun. They like as much sun as they can get. You can't go OTT with it. If you're repotting it and moving it's location to full sun then I would nip out the flower stalks this year.

    Thanks everyone. It took along time to wash the muddy stuff of it but got it clean in the end. I incorporated it into the terrarium along with pumice gravel and perlite as I wanted a really free draining mix. The back of the terrarium is a drip wall so water constantly runs down the back over capillary mat and flows through the open media. I'm getting about 82% humidity without a lid. Still need to add the fans and misting unit but it's getting there.
