  1. Well mine never flower, summer is too short. Drosera flowers often only open for a couple of hours around noon on sunny days, so you may just be missing them
  2. Harlow Carr CPS weekend 7-8 Aug 2021 Members free any volunteers to help welcome https://www.rhs.org.uk/gardens/harlow-carr/viewevent?EFID=2791&ESRC=CMS
  3. Not had much luck on coco peat, but grows ok on coir chunks for me
  4. Leave them, quite a few people cultivate them to provide food for plants, also to eat detritus and fungi
  5. I had a plant do this once , cause was broad mites
  6. They are globular springtails, harmless.
  7. My open day this year is planned for Sat 3rd July 2021. 12-5. All welcome. Plants for sale and refreshments available.
  8. Benzalkonium chloride is a common disinfectant and I’ve used it to disinfect pots. I would want to let it run for quite a while before using the water though
  9. Depends what the biocide and coating are, can you ask?
  10. I would always wash sand, and also test it with acid
  11. After many years of growing the plant, and then nearly losing it, I’ve been paying it a bit more attention. I lost most of my plants by moving them to the greenhouse, which I think is too cold and damp in winter. I’ve also noticed that my sole survivor has been growing a lot over the winter, and hardly at all over summer, so maybe it’s mainly a winter grower so needs a little water then, but no too cold so it does not rot.
  12. I’ve tried growing various Pinguicula in lime rich mixes with no discernible benefit. pH does not seem to make a difference to growth, they don’t seem to care much about their compost
  13. They’re in a frost free greenhouse
