    Hi all!

    Hello and welcome to the forum
  3. Could you not just move the pots somewhere more sheltered or if they are in the ground then Personally i would use a cane and tie them to that until the roots are strong enough to support the plant but you may also have to trim the pitchers down a little to help the plant from being uprooted by the usual winter winds. Canes first and if they are still being battered by the winds then you may have to trim the pitchers.
  4. Can you not flush it through/rinse with safe water? 3 different buckets filled with rain/reverse osmosis/distilled water and check the tds of the water whilst the sphagnum moss is in there until you get a low reading?
  5. We've all had problems with the growing of these plants at one time or another. That's how humans work by learning from their mistakes. We are then told how to do it properly via research and asking questions. Good luck with your bog garden
  6. It is simple, they will do it naturally as the daytime shortens, usually November/December time for me also (grown indoors on a windowsill) Have fun catching them as they jump once disturbed. People use allsorts but i find a wet cotton bud works quite well when collecting them just gather them from the outside in.

    Hi from Wort!

    Hello and welcome. I also grow a lot of my plants indoors at present until we get the garden done enough for me to get a greenhouse. I do have bettys bay outside which hasn't done too well this year with no flowers produced at all, lots of leaves but no flowers. Even the one indoors has produced nothing yet for that matter. But there's a month or so before they go into the porch for hibernation (not all go there.)

  9. Would it be possible to get all new members to introduce themselves first before they are allowed to post on other parts of the forum. I don't know how realistic this would be as I'm not great with all this techno wizardry stuff, i just thought it may help stop some of the strange comments by new members on some of the threads.

  11. Hello and welcome. Yes it can certainly get that way over time when you decide the plants would be better in a greenhouse then you buy loads more as the greenhouse looks bare with so few plants. Then oops you've too many plants and need a bigger greenhouse. Only joking.
