  1. The dying trap probably just reached the end of it's life cycle. Plenty of room in that pot for another year I'd say. Repot if it's been in that soil for at least a year or 2.
  2. You just need to harden them off. Google "Hardening off plants".
  3. Mine is in just long fibered sphag moss. I keep the water level nearly to the top all year.
  4. I keep the water level almost to the top of the pot on mine. It gets some direct Sun in the afteroons.
  5. Any BT product will help. Ask for BT at the garden center.
  6. It's totally normal to have some stay green. I'm waking mine up the past 2 weeks from fridge dormancy. Been doing it for over 12 years now with no problems at all.
  7. Buy a package of "Mosquito dunks" at the garden center. Put one quarter of one in your watering can. This will kill the larvae in the soil and stop future generations. It is all natural and safe. But give it some time to work. Use sticky traps and manually kill the adults.
  8. Looks like an Adelae to me. Easy plant!
  9. Sounds like they need dividing. Do it next late winter/early spring.

    Opinions please!

    I cut ALL of my pitchers off at dormancy time. Except for Purpurea and Doodle bug.
  11. I wonder if Diatomaceous Earth would work? Food grade of coarse.

    U, longifolia

    I grow one and it's currently going through a growth spurt. I grow it in a west window, water level up to the top of the pot which I allow to occasionally go half way down the water container then I refill it.
  13. My rainwater off my roof is typically around 1-3 ppm.
  14. Maybe shade them during the hottest part of the day?
  15. Well they are vines after all and this happens with them. You could always take a cutting near the top and start a new plant, it's very easy to do.

    What a cutie and the plants are really nice too!
  17. It's pretty normal. Leaves don't last forever. Clip off the yellow leaves if they bother you.
  18. Excellent article: Tom
  19. I wish I lived over there! Have fun all!
