  1. Hey guys, About a month ago it looked like my Pinguicula laueana was growing a flower bud (you could see the red coloring), but shortly after it just stopped growing and has since turned brown. Anyone have an idea as to why this has happenend? My guess is it got too hot or I watered it too much, but I'm not sure. I keep it in my kitchen directly behind a window where it can get quite hot as it receives the afternoon to evening sun. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. I doubt it's coming out of dormancy, since the these new smaller leaves only started about 1 or 2 months ago. Shouldn't that mean it's going into dormancy? It's not a temperate ping remember! Anyway I thought mine actually looked quite small when I first got it. I did get it from a nursery based in the Netherlands: araflora. How did you know? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hey guys, 3 months ago I bought this P. Laueana and since then it has been producing smaller and smaller leaves. I have kept it in the window where it got plenty of sun most of the time and the soil has been kept moist with the tray method. Also I live in the netherlands, so spring is just around the corner. Could it be it just got too hot near my window? Minimum temperature is around 20 degrees C and if the sun hits it, temperatures can reach 25 to 30 degrees max. Is it going dormant to prepare for a dry period? Are these the 'succulent' leaves I've read about? Should I let it go dormant and gradually stop watering? Any advice would be appreciated!

  4. Hey guys, My Utricularia longifolia has had these spots since I bought it and now they seem to get slowly bigger. Is this black spot, rust spot or something else? And how can I treat it? Cut off the affected parts? Thanks in advance! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  6. That's sounds good, I will do that thanks! Yes I did, how did you know?! Do those have a habit of flowering early the first year or something? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I'm 100% sure the flower stalk didn't start growing in December. They have all been dormant since early November, when I moved them to the basement. Everything seemed to slow growth until it completely stopped. The flower stalk didn't come up until late January. It's not like it's about to bloom, the stalks are only 1 inch tall (I included a picture from the 2nd of February). I plan on cutting them off when they are 2 inches and then planting them in a pot to see if new flytraps will grow. Also, I thought flytraps are more dependent on photoperiod instead of temperature? Even if that's not the case, my plants in the basement stayed relatively cool during december, so I don't think that was much of a problem. I forgot to mention I live in the Netherlands, not UK. I'll keep them inside as long as temperatures are around freezing and maybe put them outside in a month or so. A picture from 2 weeks ago: Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Are you planning on transplanting these? And if so, how? Aren't they all stuck to each other now? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hello everyone! About 2 weeks ago I ordered this D. Peltata and it had maybe 4 or 5 stalks on it about 5 cm (2 inches) tall, but all but 1 were completely brown and dead. And now even the last stalk seems like it's slowly turning brown! Could it be from shipping? Could it possibly be going dormant already? I read somewhere that might occur if it gets too hot, but I've kept it not too warm (about 15 to 20 degrees C or 60 to 68 F). I really don't want to lose this little guy already. I've been keeping it moist in a saucer and on my windowsill to give it some light (I don't have any growing lights or anything). Any advice? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hello everyone! I came here to ask advice, because I've only recently started growing carnivorous plants. Here is the situation: in the summer of 2015 I bought some Sarracenia (purpurea and some hybrids) and before that I got a venus flytrap. I put my Sarracenia + flytrap in the basement near a window to let them go dormant and they stayed there from around early November to early February (temperature was about 12 degrees C or 54 degrees F. They all went dormant without problems, slowly turning brown and stopped growing. Now that February comes around I noticed my flytrap was beginning to put a flower stalk (I'll cut it off no worries), which I saw as a sign to repot/devide all my Sarracenia + flytrap and to put them outside. But I'm starting to worry, because temperatures outside are much lower (5 degrees C or 41 F) than the temperatures they experienced inside my basement. I'm afraid they will go dormant again or go into shock form the transplant + cold temperatures. Should I be worried? Should I keep them indoors for another month or so? Any advice would be appreciated! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
