  1. I've just noticed what look like thrips on one of my heli's old leaves. Looks like pepper. I've had these before on sundews and successfully got rid of them by drenching the plant in provado. Can I do this with the heli? I'm not sure how widespread they are, I'll have a proper look at the weekend, but if so, then they're probably in the soil. Drench? Spray? Both or neither? Any advice gratefully received. -Dave

    Bogs 2015

    My planter bogs, containing various pitchers, some hardy British sundews, and at least 3 d.capensis (in their 2nd year)

    Purpureas tend to take over if they like the environment. So I've put them in their own pot. Looks a mess, but they'll soon repopulate it.

    I'm not sure what that green shoot is, but I don't think it's carnivorous.

    Why do the pitchers produce flowers first, then leaves?

    I think this is the Great/English Sundew, d. Anglica.

    At the end of each year (probably around October) I completely cut everything down to the bone, leaving just the roots.

    After months of inactivity, my pitchers seem to have sprung up overnight.
  10. Yes, and they've managed to push their way through the peat moss carpet too. I'm really pleased about this because sundews are by far my favourite CP.
  11. In case anyone wonders, yes d. capensis can survive outside in a bog in the UK. I'm in the East Midlands, and here's proof positive - 3 Cape Sundews coming back to life in a large planter that froze over during the winter.

    Heliamphora 6

    Bought this a year ago, and it seems to be doing very well on my window ledge.
  17. That is a lovely looking bog, and it will be interesting to see how it evolves over the years. Though you realise the purpurea will eventually take over (if the drosera doesn't)!

    Binata. The reddest I've seen it, but still sticky.

    On advice from this forum I've put my capensis outside. It's gone very red but seems to like it.

    The sundews are starting to die back. Maybe it's too hot for them.
