  1. Hi Platty It depends really, as most of my plants are outside I tend to do it in spring when the plant is coming out of dormancy so that any root damage, minor wounds etc caused by repotting or relocating are not left open for weeks and months before they can repair/callous over. However like most I have repotted now and other times of the year without many disasters. Cheers Steve
  2. Hi BloodyVince and welcome, once you get started in this hobby it does tend to take over a bit. Good luck in search of the cultivars you seek. Cheers Steve
  3. I have mine in a 12" shallow pot full of live Sphagnum standing in a tray of water 2" deep in summer, just damp in winter and it grows well every year. I have not tried any other medium for this plant. Cheers Steve

  10. Hi Jonny_P and welcome, I am a little bit clairvoyant and I can sense a new greenhouse coming to Hampshire in spring Cheers Steve
  11. Seedlings can be fertilised with a weak fertiliser (normally a tenth of the normal plant dosage) by foliar spray or pipette into the pitcher and derive benefit. However I have absolutely no experience with worm casts on CPs so cant advise the dilution required, nor the possible action of the 'beneficial' bacteria in pitchers. The results will be interesting, note the type of Sarracenia fertilised as not all make digestive enzymes. Cheers Steve
