  1. Every chance there are three separate, unconnected plants already. But you can just repot the bulbs together in one pot again.
  2. That plant looks very happy. No need to repot at the moment. In winter, when it's dormant, you can repot it. It'll spilt into at least three plants easy. Insects act as fertiliser. They photosynthesise like any other plant so can survive fine, but will grow faster and larger if catching insects.
  3. Interesting but I don't think the PPM of most planting mediums is indicative of being good or bad. Water high in TDS is due to calcium carbonate, sodium etc. So it is specific compounds that can cause problems rather than every dissolved solid.
  4. Sarracenia seedlings don't do great if they're crammed in like Japanese commuters and like being more spread out, but I've found VFTs aren't as bothered and can get to maturity just left to their own devices.
  5. Weird. I found it was really good - brown and mossy, just like peat used to be. The VFTs are fine in it.
  6. There was a discussion over Vitax a while ago, but it was a misunderstanding (Vitax peat is superb). Most peat suppliers won't catagorically confirm their peat is safe for carnivorous plants if you ask them. Personally I've found every brand to be absolutely fine, apart from Westland. But that was 10 years ago so might be ok now. It's a natural product at the end of the day, so there is always the chance some poorer quality product will be excavated whatever the brand.
  7. Ringed canes are what a lot of people use

    We can barely ship anything in or out of the UK now, let alone plants which require photosanitary certificates!

    Could do with sales being split - one for UK, one for the EU.
  11. Could also be natural dieback as dormancy begins. Keep it somewhere cool for the next 3 months
  12. Depends where you live. A lot of sarracenia just survive outside and look pretty ropey.
