  2. I have 5 water butts all connected to each other. When one is full it then over flows into the next and so on until all are full. When I run out of rainwater, I always have six of the 25 litre containers on standby full of RO water from the aquatic shop.
  3. Ah ok, no need to worry about washing it first etc?
  4. well done Matt and NIgel, will see you both at BBC Gardeners World.
  5. I'm thinking of using horticultural grit for top dressing my cp's - can I use it on all cp's or not?
  6. I know this is an old thread...but does anyone know if Chris is still up and running, and does he have a website? I've done internet searches and have come up with...nothing.
  7. Hi Richard Basically the plant was put into a bowl of rainwater. It has indeed got algae in it now. I will start again using the method you use. I'll let you know how I get on.
  8. No I dont have pond snails.
  9. I had 2 flower buds chomped off one of my Sarracenias today. No idea whats done it, but all I had left were 2 flower stalks.

    Last year, I accidentally sprayed all my flytraps with weedkiller, and as you would expect, they didnt do very well after that. I have been going through them one by one today, and decided that, before throwing them away, I would dig down the pot and see if anything was happening. To my surprise, some of them were actually producing tiny traps about half way down the peat, completely covered from any sunlight by the peat on top of them. Can anyone tell me why they are growing so far down in the peat?
  11. Can anyone tell me how to successfully grow this plant? Mine seem to have vanished over winter. Cheers.
  12. How do you grow these plants I have got several of them and absolutely nothing is happening? Any advice re the general all year round growing of them would be really appreciated. Cheers.
  13. I have two of these running constantly 24 hours a day 7 days a week in my 12 x 10 greenhouse. They work brilliantly and have never let me down.
  14. Your plants are in front of mine, I only have half a dozen flowers open but theres loads of buds just waiting to burst open.
  15. Unbelievable - can't believe I didn't spot them. All plants sprayed now.
  16. How do I know my Sarracenia are showing signs of excessive heat? The reason I ask is because a couple of new pitchers have bent over at the top, but it has been very hot the last couple of days and I have been away. The water in the benches pretty much dried up and the nice lady who was looking after my plants.....shut the roof vents!

    Welcome to CPUK Zugul.
  18. I keep mine in a heated greenhouse over Winter, and they are doing fine. As soon as all risk of frost has gone, they move into the main greenhouse with everything else.
