    How do i make a 'cheap' rain water catcher?

    I managed some tray methods but nothing permanent That is super, very compact and cheap i will definitely consider that, thanks so much for sharing.

    How do i make a 'cheap' rain water catcher?

    That's an awesome idea, especially as i already got a garden table outside by them, will def give a go! Think i will try this also, thanks for your suggestions :)
  4. Hi, I live in Mid-Wales in UK so we usually have plenty of rain but now summer is coming we are getting periods of water shortage and luckily my grandmother only lives down the road and i collect rain water from her water butt for my CP's (I have quite a few inside and outside!), but carrying various bottles of water from her house everyday is tiring so i am wondering if there is any make-shift rain water catchers i could make/buy? I don't have enough room for a water butt in my own garden, i have used standard wide containers in the past to catch rain water but it ofen evaporates as quick as it comes in them. Anyone use any other methods?

    Is it a change of environment problem?

    Thanks Mujinamo, i certainly won't bother with one outside again, such a shame. Yes thats handy for the temperature drop just at night.

    Is it a change of environment problem?

    It's much the same shriveled, lost all colour and almost 'dry' looking, almost as if it's gone into dormancy? Although i insist it's not dead. Yes, certainly much harder than the others i have had. That's the thing the sunlight is whats good to be extra careful on, whats it like in Stockholm? here it's unpredictable at the moment, thunderstorms today, heatwave yesterday! Not good for the CP's

    Biorb Terrarium would it work?

    I don't have near as much experience as many of the others here on this forum, but i think it would work fine, especially as the biorb air itself is designed as a terrarium. I didn't actually realise the item existed until i saw your post (and link), it seems awesome. If i had the money, i would probably buy one. The CPS would look awesome in there and personally would think they be perfect. PS. If you do buy, please make a thread or keep us updated on how there all doing in there!! :)

    Finally ... ! The project is underway :)

    Thanks! I'm glad it's doing so well, shows everyone on this forum is keen for others to enjoy the exciting hobby of carnivorous plants. Hopefully i plan to do something like this for next season! :)

    First proper attempt outdoors

    That is a great shame, i bet it can be difficult to source specific plants if that is the case, at least on here there are lots of access to plants and online plant stores links i recently bought some from Poland. I havn't but i was due to go 3 weeks ago on holiday (to Stockholm, then Malmo) but couldn't go due to personal circumstance, however i do wish to live there which (at 21 years of age) on my own would be a huge step, but i love the people, i want swedish friends, and love the culture.

    This doesn't surprise me Mantrid just hope it does recover! :) Thank you Mark, yes i suppose it depends on each individual case, shame though, i want the little buggar to succeed ha! Same i have seen lovely specimens too. I find neps difficult so i will little hope with this :/ I suppose it's all about trial and error Thanks guys

    Thanks JMHoff, i notice your from Stockholm. Sweden my fave country!! :) What's it like out there CP-wise? The fertilizer i won't bother buying again, nothing special. As for the orchid fertilizer it certainly hasn't done any harm so whether or not it's any good it's hard to tell. UPDATE: All doing well except for the one drosera In the green tub i did plant butterworts in between them because i am so limited for room
