    Ben’s mum

    I suspect Ben was a tissue cultured plant. They tend to be a bit delicate for their first couple of years.
  2. Very nice. Have you got water butts sorted?
  3. Yes, the L43! It's a nice one :-)
  4. Loads have popped up here in the last 10 days, even though it's been constantly raining and dull.
  5. Probably sedge peat
  6. A mild winter for us would be bitterly cold in Alabama and Northern Florida. This is what they're experiencing in the wild at the moment: Daylight is the important thing really. They're tough though, so don't worry about a cold snap in February or March, they'll be fine.
  7. Hi and welcome! Make an effort to take a trip down to Shropshire Sarracenias in Telford on their open day in June (date tbc). You'll soon find your 18 sarracenia will have plenty of company!
  8. Nobody cuts them off in the wild :-) Some clones hold on to their leaves better than others. Often they start to brown in spring when new growth comes (which won't be affected). Dormancy is often just suspended animation, not a complete die off. You can cut them down to the ground if you want, but anecdotally the following year's pitchers don't grow as big.
  9. Dormancy can be a state of suspended animation with some clones, not a complete die back.

    When to repot?

    You can repot any time in dormancy, although I tend to leave leucophyllas until after Christmas. They'll still grow roots in winter, so whether they have two or three months in the cold to slowly grow roots, or 6 weeks in the warmth to quickly grow roots doesn't seem to make much difference.
  11. Alexis,

    Were you the owner of I have 229 links in the CP Photo Finder to that are not working. Are those photos gone or have they been moved somewhere?

    Rather than reply by a CPUK message, would you reply to me at [email protected] ?


  12. I'd say it was pretty exceptional. Which is why I'd pay happily £20 for it instead of the usual £10!
  13. Sound like springtails. Move a capensis leaf over to the flytrap and it'll catch them.
  14. What are they potted in out of interest? Fresh peat doesn't usually grow slime
  15. That's what Google says! Telford v Guiseley Whoever they are!
