    staying outside?

    Hi Ian sorry for delay in replying computer went wrong I am from Suffolk. I will need to pot on some of my cobras next year as they have spread to the edges of their pots i will invest in some wider shallower pots Been very wet here so having to drain off excess water nearly every day though the plants don't seem to mind.

    Thanks ian i have never had a problem also it was mainly down to not really knowing and just leaving them to their own devises over winter My cobra ones are a bit challenging as some have thrived and others have gone brown and died i grow them in irish moss peat and perlite Should i change the growing medium to live sphagnum moss as i had read on the cobra section that they seem to do better in it ?

I dont seem to have had any problems though i have may be lost one or two of the sarracenias that were small they stay by my hedge in full sun all winter i have been doing this for the last 4 years oops.

    Hi everyone what is the ideal growing conditions for A.sikokianum. i have tried in the past but they just seem to fade away and don't come up again. i have a mix of extreme well drained soil and bands of very heavy clay
  7. Hi every one new to this forum I am a lover of Aroids though no expert so am seeking more information on how to grow these fascinating plants.
