  1. If you are in the UK they may be going into a type of dormancy, put a bag over them to try and raise the humidity a little and i have also lost a huge cephalotus in the past due to incorrect watering and too much direct sunlight (south facing windowsill) so i take extra care with watering now (wait a couple of days after the tray has dried before watering again.) Although temperature and light intensity can change this.
  2. I'm sure you will enjoy the plant just as much as i Aldad
  3. Hi Aldad, i have a sarracenia growing indoors on a south facing windowsill and one of its pitchers has fallen over also. It's just one of those things i think. I'm hoping the rest will be ok. Which Sarracenia's do you have? Psittacina by any chance?
  4. Could you Google them then stick a picture up when you find what you think they are

    Good knowledgeable website you have
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. No I got them through ebay sent from the USA
  9. 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
  10. You can buy ready mixed compost online from www.littleshopofhorrors.co.uk or www.hccarnivorousplants.co.uk
  11. Remember the plants will need some form of air flow to help prevents botritis
