  1. I place it in the bottom of my pots sometimes to stop the peat going through the drainage holes.
  2. It may be root mealy bug. If you put the root in water see if a white powder floats to the surface.
  3. I use full depth pots but square ones, fit nicely together to save space. You can get small ones in a nursery or larger ones online.
  4. Yes just pour it over and around, any that comes out the bottom I pour onto the next one. I think you are supposed to repeat every so many months. The ones I can see I squash, although some people dab them with methalated spirit on a paint brush, its the root mealy bugs that are my problem,even attack my sarracenia and you dont know they are there until you go to repot or the plant looks sickly.
  5. They are a terrible pest arent they, get in the soil and attacks the roots as well. On my lithops I use in the form of a drench, Provado Vine Weevil Killer, should be O.K. for Cacti too.

    Unable to source Akadama locally am I right in thinking there is a cat litter alterative ?

  9. I think the second picture is alabamensis.
  10. I notice this is how the plant in question is now labelled on Aidan's website, so he has rectified his original naming. quote :- ipF05c Sarracenia flava var. rubricorpora 'Burgundy' One of a number of clones in circulation under this name. When I purchased it back in 2005 it was stated CV and I still have the original label with that on, so if I have misled anyone stating it as a Burgundy cultivar its because I believed it was.
  11. Hey, Ive just caught up with this thread. I am the seller you are discussing and would never knowingly deceive anyone. I sold two different clones of Burgundy, the one I called a CV came from Aiden Selwyn and I have this blog on it. [s. flava var.rubricorpora cv ‘Burgundy’ (SF05c) Slack – ex. Oxford University Field Centre [OBG] – Micropropagated from original (?) Slack clone. [stL-003] Aiden Selwyn ] The second which apparently I mis-spelt came from a chap called Benjamin Dawkins and he described it as Burgundy form which is what I stated. Incidentially, the remaining divisions which I potted up are in sulk which is no doubt what is happening to the ones you are referring to. The pictures which were with my ebay listings showed the parent plants so if they were not Burgundy then I have been done, which I doubt from the well known seller mentioned. I pride myself on the quality of the plants I sale and hope that has cleared up any doubts.

    A record?

    Thanks for finding that picture mrAlmond, the rehderi is beautiful. Yes Andy it should have been divided but I have had so many to do this year this one has escaped. I had a leucophila with a lot of flowers last year but it payed the price by producing few pitchers, this year I have split it to rejuvinate whats left.

    Leaning pitchers

    Yes, S. rubra for instance. Why live sphagnum moss? I would use that for heliamphora but sarracenia are usually potted into a peat and perlite mix.

    60 A way to go then, but not bad from a 14 cm pot.
