  1. Hi BeyBlade, I think this is normal ageing of the pitchers and is quite normal and I have noticed this on my flavas around this time of year too. . I notice that your plants otherwise look very healthy. I think that the spots are where there is a strong concentration of sugars in the nectar. Best Regards, Marko
  2. Looking good, nice flush of flowers !! Mark
  3. A bit like sprouts and other things then ; you either love ‘em or hate ‘em !
  4. Hi Fred, Oh the miseries ! Surely I 'm not alone in liking them; or the orange/lemon scent of the flowers..... Really like the wagging finger, feels like school again ! Best Regards, Mark
  5. Hi all, Thought as it's fairly quiet I'd share this photo of some Sarracenia flowers which are superb as cut flowers and last longer than I expected. Regards to all, Mark
  6. Hi Guy, Thank you, yes Stephen is correct, they are definitely D. capensis from seed which I collected from my mother plant. After initially having round leaves they now have the more typical elongated leaf with each one getting longer as the plants grow... Best Regards, Marko
  7. Just thought I would share this : now done and all looking well albeit a bit lost sitting on their own ! Looking forward to them colouring up when we get some sunshine !!
  8. Many thanks Magnus, I thought they may be close ! Best Regards, Mark.
  9. Please can anyone advise the best size/time to prick out D. capensis seedlings. I inevitably sowed the seeds too thickly due to their minute size and would welcome some advice. Many thanks
  10. Hi, I would say definitely leave these on, as they are effectively leaves and therefore photosynthesise and add strength to the plant.
  11. Hi all, I have a couple of very healthy flytraps which have lovely long teeth. However I noticed that on some traps, whilst successful in catching flies they haven't fully sealed because the teeth didn't interlock and one row of teeth appear to have been caught inside the trap. Anyone familiar with this please ? Just an update observation to this in case of interest to anyone. The trap did fully seal up with one set of teeth inside !!!
  12. Greetings Ada, got my first plant from you last year ! I would like to try growing some outdoors in a sheltered position in summer but am concerned about wind blowing them over. Or is this not recommended for the larger varieties ?
  13. Hi all, Being fairly new back to the hobby after 30 or so years, amazed at the size of some of the wonderful hybrids ! Looking forward to the start of the growing season, please can anyone advise on the best staking methods ? Thanks in anticipation,
