  1. I find the best thing to do is to leave it and when the leaves start turning a bit brown cut them off and give it a day or two and it grows a ton of new leaves and theyre just as dewy as ever =D this seems to work for me as mine seems to lose its dew when it needs a trim
  2. When will we know the exact dates for EEE 2012 also where abouts in Bonn will it be?? i would really like to go as i went for the first time this year in Chester and it was great, i was thinking of making a weekend of it in Germany =D
  3. oki cool, thanks for the advice =D
  4. Hi could this work for a D.Anglica, i have had mine for about 3 months and it now just seems to have stopped producing new leaves and i really don't want to lose it.
  5. oki cool thanks, ive just been submerging it in water for the past hour or so which seems to have significantly reduced the amount of bugs on the plant i will keep an eye on it and repeat this i think until i dont see bugs appearing anymore, hopefully it will work ive heard it works for greenfly so thought i would give it a go
  6. Hi guys i would really appreciate some help, Ive just got home and found lots of tiny black bugs on my Venus fly trap, they're so small that the traps cant catch them, i would upload a picture but my camera isn't good enough to pick them up, they look like they have little antennas and round bodies, if anyone knows what they are and what i should do about them i would be grateful for the advice, i have moved the plant away from the rest of my plants so they don't spread in case they are harmful. Thanks Sarah
  7. Hi Guys heres a few new pics for you =D the flower is from my D.Aliciae, i was amazed to see that it has 8 petals rather than the usual 5 =D and this is a photo of my new trap forming on my S.Leucophylla which i bought from Mike of Shropshire Sarracenias at EEE this year =D Enjoy =D
  8. Woooo im on one of those photos =D in the purple shirt facing away from the camera =D

    Hi guys, i have a bit of a query, recently we've had some rather hot weather, all my CPs live together in my conservatory, the other day i went out and it was pretty dull and looked like it may rain so i left them in the conservatory but, when i got back i found one of my Sarracenias looking a bit ill i think its been burnt by the sun as while i was out it got really hot, my D.Capensis also looked as though it may have suffered too but this is now looking ok whereas my Sarra is not looking so great. Unfortunatly i also had 4 baby Pings growing in the conservatory and 3 of these have died because of the heat =( i still have one though which is looking great, i just wondered if you could tell me if it is sun burn my Sarra is suffering with and what i could do to get it better again thanks, ive posted some links to my pictures apologies for them being a bit blurry my cameras not too great =) Thanks Links to my photos: http://www.cpukforums.com/images/218rsz_dscf5438.jpg http://www.cpukforums.com/images/694rsz_dscf5440.jpg http://www.cpukforums.com/images/879rsz_dscf5443.jpg http://www.cpukforums.com/images/442rsz_dscf5444.jpg
  12. Hi guys, i woke up this morning to find that my D.Aliciae had flowered =D Ive been waiting ages for it to flower its been very exciting as this is the first of my CPs to flower cause i didn't let my VFT flower this year. I thought i would share my photos with you =D took them this morning, its been fun watching the storks grow and the seeing the petals starting to poke through the bud and now its finally flowered and looks lovely, my hard work has paid off =D Hope you enjoy them as much as i have, cause the flower has closed now already =( Here's the links directly to my photos: http://www.cpukforums.com/images/800rsz_dscf5785.jpg http://www.cpukforums.com/images/475rsz_dscf5786.jpg http://www.cpukforums.com/images/555rsz_dscf5787.jpg
