    Drosophyllum progress

    Looking a lot bushier now. And still has some flower heads but don't think any seed will be viable this time of year. Just hope it lasts the winter.

    First time keeper,dormancy help

    From Nigel H-C's book he recommends dormancy being from Halloween to Valentine's day - which is and nice easy to remember. During this period pots should be damp and not soaking wet, so don't sit them in 3cm of water - just a little will do, but don't let the pots dry out completely. When you put your plants in the 'shelter' make sure you get a little air movement in there - last thing you want is stagnant air which can encourage botrytis mould. Most sarracenia do not need water in the pitchers. The only exception are the S. purpurea plants and maybe some of their hybrids. It is natural for the pitchers to turn brown this time of year, so don't worry about it.

    Anyone tell me what I’ve got sprouting?

    Unfortunately nothing of interest to us here However, not sure how long you've been on the forum, but after 1 month or so you'll be able to purchase plants/seeds from other members. In fact, there are sarracenia seeds on sale even now.

    Hi and welcome to the forum. Looks a good start, but the vfts will take some time to reach full size.

    Drosera Magnifica In Cultivation

    Nigel H-C has produced an article in the September 2018 issue of the ICPS newsletter on D. magnifica cultivation you may find interesting.

    Open day, 13th of October, 2018, 9 to 2.30 pm

    Don't think I'll be able to make it unfortunately - beer festival on the Friday takes precedence (Note to Mike: times on the CPS website need updating).

    No email notification of new message

    I did receive email notification the other day, so whatever you've done Richard has had some effect. I'll have to wait for another PM to confirm it's fixed though.

    Hello from the midlands

    Hi and welcome to the forum.
  11. Whenever I was PM'd in the past I used to get an email notification. Now I've noticed this no longer happens and the option appears to have been disabled by the administrator. Is there any reason for this, or do I need to set some other option first?

    New flowerbuds in september??

    No need to worry. They'll either die off as the cold weather approaches or you can remove them when they grow a bit more. I suppose they could stay as buds until next spring but I doubt it.

    Forum problems

    Yes, I've read the other thread and I'm not blaming Richard at all. He's doing a sterling job trying to keep it going. I used to come on here every day, now it's every other day. Terribly slow again now so the site is almost unusable. Going to logoff instead

    It is so slow it discourages me from coming on here at all.
