  1. Could you Google them then stick a picture up when you find what you think they are

    Good knowledgeable website you have
  3. Found a few 2 spotted spider mites on a cephalotus a few days ago so ordered 1000 phytoseiulus persimilis which arrived today, so the predatory mites were dropped on all of my household plants. Fingers crossed it works (all plants grown indoors during the growing season only) Had a look around my collection and found a few damn mealy bugs on an air plant so they've been drenched in sb plant invigorator so we shall see what happens
  4. I live 7 miles from preston and the tds of our tap water which I've just checked is 49ppm Alternatively dehumidifier water is low at 12 or you can buy distilled water online of which I have had to purchase in the past few years during the dry spells we have had but isn't cheap but again does the job and delivered quickly
  5. No I got them through ebay sent from the USA
  6. That's what is recommended on the US carnivorous site. I purchased some a couple of months ago and am now waiting for the time to use them and watch the gnats drop like flies
  7. You can buy ready mixed compost online from www.littleshopofhorrors.co.uk or www.hccarnivorousplants.co.uk
  8. Remember the plants will need some form of air flow to help prevents botritis
  9. It looks like starmoss, just keep watering your plant and it'll thrive. Does tend to compete with seedlings though
  10. What did you find out to get rid of them?
  11. Nice healthy looking plant. Are they grown completely in sphagnum moss or is that just a top dressing?
  12. Ants love feeding from the sugary fluid greenflies produce so have a close look for them. As has been said it may be worthwhile giving it a spray with bug clear
