  1. Hi everyone! I managed to keep most of my plants alive since October 2014. However it is now summer and i am lost. My plants are getting all yellow and slowly dying. I have VF, Drosera capensis and Sarracenia purpurea. I used to keep them in the aquarium on the window sill. But it gets +40C degrees here and it is so sunny. What should i do? where should i keep them? Thanks for the help. Hope my plants will survive the summer!
  2. I bought it in autumn and kind of skipped the dormacy part. as they are inside and its warm in the room. Do you think that's what's happening to my plant? does that mean that repotting was a bad idea at this point? also i must say the root system was very small and very short. i was surprised by how small it is.
  3. hi all. my venus flytrap is dying. it looked very sad. the leaves are narrower than usual and in general it looked sick. i repoted it today into a perlit:moss mix. still looks very sad. i used to water it with distilled water as we did not have rain for the last month. now back on rainwater. i kept it in a tank, but now after repotting it just sits on the windowsill. should i keep it that way or should i cover it?? also, i am not sure if i used too much perlite, more than moss. if this is the case would it hurt the plant? should i repot it again? anything else i should keep in mind? here a
  4. Hello everyone! Anyone here from Armenia?? happy to be part of this great forum! cheers V.
  5. wow. they look amazing! i would even say delicious! ;)
  6. Thx for the reply, although I feel a bit more confused now. ;) For hybernation purposea if I keep them in a cold room, do they need light? I mean can it be a room with no windows or not. Do I need to water them? I should add that I have 1-2 cm water in tank and I let it dry out and then I add new water. I am hoping this way there will be humidity but not too much to let mold and rotting.
  7. Ok. So I should keep the drosera separate? I keep them in tank becuz the air in armenia durig the winter is very dry. In the summer there wont be need for it. I have a lid for the tank which I leave semi open so the air could circulates. Do gou think this is wrong? also could you suggest how I hybernate my plants. Any good guide you would recommend? Internet is full of advices. I evrn saw a girl who put the vft in the plastic bag and inside the fridge. I am reluctant to follow her example. Also I should mention winters are very harsh in armenia. Its minus and lots of snow. Inside we keep the

  10. Hello everyone! I am new to the forum, so let me introduce myself first! My name is Vaneni, I am from Armenia (a country where even the botanical garden does not have any CP!!!!). If i do ask too many question or talk too much, do forgive me. I am a beginner, i love my plants and i am in panick! I have three plants, dionaea, drosera? and sarracenia?. so i bought my plants in Moscow, from a hypermarket Auchan (those with French connections will know it) mid October. Even though I traveled with them in my hand baggage, they did suffer some physical damage upon arrival. Brown leaves, cu
