  1. Hi Linuxman, Sorry for late reply. I did before but must not have hit submit reply.Thank for your help and advice much appreciated. I will not bother with seeds, just enjoy the flowers and plant itself. It as been in the greenhouse since last summer and is back in there now. I just brought it in to take the photo's and show my wife how nice the flower is.
  2. Just started on keeping carnivorous plants last year and got myself a Sarracenia I think is a smoorii. Anyway I cut it down over the winter and keeped it in my unheated greenhouse. Now I am really pleased it it as 2 flowers and growing nicely. Such an unusual flower. I will not be going to try and grow any from the seeds I am quit happy with the plant and flowers. I may get another one and see if next year I can get that to flower to. All the best to you all Les
  3. Being new to carnivorous plants, Would fresh Natural Welsh Moss Sphagnum Moss be OK to put on to of the mix round my plants, butterworts, sundews and pitcher. That is if I give it a good clean with fresh rain water. I don't want to use the wrong sort and harm my plants Any help much appreciated Les

  6. Hi Guy Thank you for your advice and help with this. I will start leaving them in the greenhouse except the Nepenthes. I am watering them with distilled water. and have started to just keep them damp. I think I have a lot to learn, but worth it in the end. Cheers for your help Les24
  7. Now that I am retired and walking round a garden centre. I thought I would try and keep some carnivorous plants. I went a bit mad or maybe a totally mad and brought 6 plants. one Pinguicula Tina. Two Drosera capensis. Two Nepenthes monkey cups. One Venus flytrap. I have an unheated greenhouse that I have been putting them in the day and bringing them into the house at night apart from the Pingguicula Tins which I have keeped in the house all the time. I have re-potted them into deeper plastic pots and just water them with distilled water. Now this is where I need your advice on how to take care of them over the winter. I have put some photo's of the plants for you to see. Than
