    Flower..

    i,ve tried this before,sometimes it works and you do get much bigger pitchers.however some will flower again,only smaller because of the wasted energy put into the previous flower.i think its best to let nature take its course-you can always cut the flower off when the petals fall,to save energy for the pitchers instead of seeds
  2. isn,t that the case for everyone.
  3. i use to repot every year,but as GOE says it affects the size & colour of pitchers,especially rubras.i only repot when i have to(i,m getting lazy in my old age)i could be tempted to split some up-for the right swaps of course.hint-hint,aidan.
  4. i made a bog barrel several years ago for my wife.i started with half an oak barrel,lined this with an old black refuse sack-the thick type.then put some broken polystyrene in,3 or 4inches deep,then filled the barrel with old cp compost,from repotting time and watered it in.when settled in i cut the black bag 1 1/2inches from the top of the barrel and topped up with fresh compost.easy. my wife grows darlingtonia,pings,sarras,drosera & a little fly trap ,which have all survived being frozen,baked and watered when remembered.
