    New growth dying off - help!

    The poorly pitcher looks like something has nipped the bottom when it was smaller and damaged it. The other two look ok. I'd leave it and just keep an eye on how the two good pitchers develop. Worth giving it a quick spray with Bug Clear just in case.

    Crossing Sarracenia questions

    "If I crossed 2 different colour forms of S. flava (e.g. ornata x rubricopora) would the offspring be one colour form or the other (i.e. colour genetics simple) or would they be intermediate?" Theoretically a quarter would lean more towards parent A, a quarter would lean towards parent B and half would be a mix, including some grandparent genes or even older.

    Plantsman's new greenhouse

    Looking good. Looks more 16 feet to me?

    Do you have a photo?

    Greenhouse build

    Definitely a plus point when you're 6' 2"! It'll be novel not to have Brook's Hybrid etc getting squashed against the glass. I also need to repot everything as they've been basically growing wild outside for 12 months. If only it was light in the evenings!
  6. This project has taken a lot longer than hoped but at long last the new greenhouse is up and running. Here is how the project went! The old Eden 10 x 8 greenhouse that came with the house. The jungle inside. The garden was full of big teasels and brambles. Greenhouse gone and jungle clearance to come. Leylandii to fell next. Cleared site. Footings for the paving slab perimeter base. Base down. Finally up and running. This is Mike's 20' x 8.6' minor/alata/rubra Robinsons greenhouse. Next step is to assemble the staging.

    Hybrid Sarracenia including all known species?

    Not that I know of, but the species in its distant past would be so diluted they might as well not be there. e.g (5 species hybrid x minor) x leucophylla would just look like an excellens. (5 species hybrid x leucophylla) x flava would just look like a moorei.

    BLACK Sarracenia

    Whatever happened to Insektenfang? Their website has gone and the Facebook page hasn't been updated for 18 months. I know Aidan sold it to a new owner.

    Brexit???

    Multi billion pound car factories with thousands of supply chains are in the dark, so they'll be no answer to our situation any time soon. Best to get it all done during February probably!

    Very small Flavas over winter survival

    They look perfectly normal to me for yearling flavas. They tend to jump up in size after their first few dormancy periods, so your first pitchers in spring may well be twice the size.

    is this S. Leucophylla?

    Looks like S.x mitchelliana to me

    Help little spots on my Sarracenia

    Probably just a bit of sooty mold growing on the nectar. Nothing to worry about

    Problem with my sarracenia minor

    Just looks like stress from being repotted and then being put back in the sun. The seller's idea of full sun might not be 10 full hours like you. The next pitchers will be fine. I wouldn't worry

    Sarracenia Gluttony

    Seems a shame considering they'll be in a greenhouse maybe next year. You'll be rewarded with bigger plants!

    how to propagate sarracenias

    Looks tissue cultured. It'll be a bit difficult to divide yet because it'll be a mass of pitchers on a small piece of rhizome.
