    Hi, Can someone please help me with my sarracenia this year was all repoted into fresh peat and perlite mix at 2/1 and all has flower for me,but about half of them has not sent up eney pitchers at all? All grown outside in a glasshouse year round in full sun.

    Dionaea summer problems.

    I was thinking of potting them in sphagnum moss, but it would cost me £££ as I have a lot of plants...

    Dionaea summer problems.

    Just a update on my VFT before I repot them for the summer.I use rain water for them at 10 ppm or lower and peat/ perlite mix,but I have just tested my peat with rain water and the ppm gos up to 105ppm.Could peat be my problem?

    Dionaea summer problems.

    I would say about 80% of my Venus flytraps do this each summer. Plus it's more the outer Edge venus fly traps what is more affected in Mid summer. I use rain water only, plus shamrock peat moss and horticultural perlite only at 50/50 mix, I have noticed the thermometer in the greenhouse has hit 47 degrees over the last few weeks, as the greenhouse is in full sun from morning till sunset.

    So if it's not the temperature at this time of the year,what could it be?

    Been checking all you said and the only thing I can see is the temperature in the greenhouse as been at 42c over the last few weeks, so with them being in black pots as well it looks like heat stress?

    Yes using rain water at 6ppm for all my other cp as well.

    Dionaea summer problems.

    Mine looks like the photo above all summer until the spring when they burst back into life. So next year I might shade the greenhouse a little over the summer months and see what happens.

    This is another problem I only have in summer with my venus fly traps they get smaller and smaller and less leaves till the growth comes to a stop.In Autumn and Winter they are beautiful red traps and lots of growth if someone could help me with a problem that would be great.
