  1. You can get deionised water at Halfords at £3:50 for 5 litres in the battery section, I use it whenever I'm out of rainwater
  2. My following sundews have flower stalks : D. Capensis red D. Capensis D. Rotundfolia D. Admirabillis D. Aliciae Does anyone have any tips on how to collect seeds from them? Do i just collect them once the flower goes brown? Do they need to pollinated by other drosera or should i just leave them Also does anyone know how long aphids take to drown? Thanks
  3. Does anyone know of the variety of plants available on the open day? As in are the plants advertised on the websites for sale on the open day? Also, do the plants there go very quickly, are some plant species out of stock on the second day for example Thanks :)
  4. Recently while trimming my Alicae I noticed small mold hairs growing on lower browning leaves Could this be harmful? How tough are alicaes? Would better airflow get rid of it? Thanks a lot
  5. The soil I can use to fill it is a mix of peat and sand however it has been in my greenhouse for about two weeks and its kinda humid in their, however the bag has been folded and the soil is still dry, is there any chance this soil could go mouldy or off (Apologies I'm new at this :D)
  6. My Sarracenia scarllet belle has been with me for about two weeks now since I purchased it from Hampshire carnivorous plants, The peat moss it is growing in shifted during transit meaning there's about a half a centimeter gap between the pot and the peat and I have noticed there are some white roots growing inside the empty space It is in a 9cm pot and is about 3 years old Can it still have a good growing season despite the roots growing in empty space? Ps the soil I'm using to repot another plant has been in its bag in my greenhouse, is this still good to use Thanks :)
  7. That's a relief, however in noticed some moss growth in the drainage system and in the roof, would that be any reason for concern?
  8. Apologies for posting again in such a short amount of time but I have run into a bit of a problem, recently I've collected about 5 litres of rain water in a large barrel by simply redirecting the rain that falls from my roofs drains and my roof itself. My question is, is there a chance the rainwater may have picked up additional nutrients as it was running down the roofs pipe and the roof itself ?. Need advice as plants are arriving soon and that is the only rainwater I have collected :/ - Thanks a lot:)

    Sundew dormancy

    Ive just bought a drosera capensis and a drosera aliciae, does anhone have any tips on what i should do to help them survive dormancy, how much light and dormancy should they get? During the day we get an average temp of about 5°C and a night temp of about -1°C if that helps - Thanks
  10. Hello, I've read that it's best to buy bare rooted plants during dormancy as you reduce the risk of plant trauma during repotting. To specify the plants I'm looking to purchase are sarracenias, fly traps and some sundewes (capensis and aliciae) what do you think I should do Thanks in advance :)
  11. Do you reckon it would be safer to purchase them now if they are bare root plants?
  12. I am purchasing some carnivorous plants online 1 venus flytrap 1 sundew1 1 buttewort (Pinguicula) 1 Pitcher plant (Nepenthes) 1 pitcher plant (sarracenia) My question is, when should i purchase them. Would it be best to buy now and allow them to adjust to the climate during dormancy or wait until March. Any advice would be appreciated. -Thanks :)
