  1. From the album: Sarracenia

    FL10 Sarracenia flava ssp. atropurpurea Blackwater River State Forest; Florida. RvL FL18 2008, MK F27B 2003, P.Wilson
  2. Having started my Carnivorous Plant journey (some ten years ago) by growing a handful of plants outdoors (due to lack of a greenhouse at the time), I've now returned to displaying a few plants outside; in a couple of newly set up bogs... A Darlingtonia haven on the left, and a mixed species bog on the right: The Darlingtonia are in a very watery/soupy mix of pure Sphagnum & rain water, and has a solar-powered airstone at the bottom to create a bit of oxygenation - in full sun the water really bubbles away! The Belfast sink bog, consists of S. × 'Maxima', S. purpur
  3. A few photos of plants from today. With the poor weather we're having things haven't moved on much recently and plants haven't yet got their best colour. Anyway, I'll start off with a few tall flavas the tallest being 91cm ATM. From left to right they are: S. flava, Dahlia Bog, VA (MK F5) S. flava, 120cm+ (Christian Klein) S. flava, Very large form, NC,WS(PW) (MK F32) S. flava, very large form, NC (Dennis Balsdon) (same as MK F32?) S. flava, Red lip, column and throat (ipF19) 6 rubricorporas in the next 3 photos: S. flava var. rubricorpora, Giant red tube, Apalachicola (MK F21) S. flava
  4. Hello Is there much of an advantage in washing roots and soaking Sarracenias in a fungicide when dividing? What I have done before is take the plant out of the pot and wash the roots under a tap to get rid of almost all of the potting mix. Then the clumps were divided by pulling apart the crowns. These were placed in a solution of wettable Sulphur and soaked there for a few minutes. Then they were potted up. Do you suggest this method or could I get away without having to wash the roots or soaking in Sulphur? If I did not soak in Sulphur or alternatively Hydrogen Peroxide, would it mean
  5. Hi everyone, I am not really happy about the state of the few Sarracenia I'm growing on my balcony. I think they are quite slow grower and produce only a few pitchers. When I checked the roots, I noticed some white-blue colour around the roots. Do you have any idea what this is? A kind of mould? See in particular the part of the pic that is surrounded by the blue line. I treated with Aliette, a systemic fungicide. Any other/better idea? For information, here is the mix I'm using: 50% peat moss, 20% coco peat, 14% vermiculite, 14% perlite, 3% charcoal Close-up:
  6. Hello The very hot UK weather has played havoc with my CPs. I went on holiday for a week, and I thought the trays would be sufficiently topped up with water to last while I was away - previous years have been fine. But I guess the hot weather this year meant that they got through the water quicker than usual. Result: I got home and everything was pretty dry. many Dionaea had started turning black, many Sarracenia had also wilted. To make matters worse, I was also out of rain water. All I could do was give them tap water - I thought that would be better than nothing. I am in Lon

    Purpureas tend to take over if they like the environment. So I've put them in their own pot. Looks a mess, but they'll soon repopulate it.
  8. From the album: Bogs 2015

    I'm not sure what that green shoot is, but I don't think it's carnivorous.
  9. From the album: Bogs 2015

    Why do the pitchers produce flowers first, then leaves?
  10. From the album: Bogs 2015

    At the end of each year (probably around October) I completely cut everything down to the bone, leaving just the roots.

    After months of inactivity, my pitchers seem to have sprung up overnight.
  12. Hi, Does anyone know what this is on my pitcher plant? It shouldn't have anything to do with outdoors as i have only just planted outside as it had been inside my living room for a while. Notice the pitchers dying off at the top, my thought was that there was too much sun on it in the house (east window). It is now south facing outside but still gets plenty of sun. It is very tall pitcher and all my other plants are flourishing so does anyone know what this is? and what i could do about it? Many thanks Owen
  13. Hi, Does anyone know what these red dots/lines are on my pitcher plants below the rotting pitchers. It shouldn't relate to anything outdoors as i have only just planted outside as before it was on an east facing window (inside) hence the rotting traps which is down to too much sun??? But if you look closely you will see the red dots/rotting at the top of the pitcher plants what is it does anyone know? And anything i can do about it? Thanks
  14. Hello, I have three outdoor bogs where I grow sarracenia and made this little video about early spring care. I hope some members will find it useful. And maybe subscribe to the channel :) Thanks

  17. First off, for those of you not familiar with this variant, S. flava 'extreme red throat' is an unofficial, fictitious name to describe a plant that has more red in the throat than the average S. flava var. rugelii. Some would call this plant a rugelii, while others may call it an ornata. I think neither best describes these plants because some of the pitchers don't have veins, some are a bit reddish, and others are rather green. For those of you who want to see "the plant that started this whole thing" here's "the type specimen":

  21. Hi I'm Emery I have three sarracenia that I hope some one can help identify. I'm near the Wednesday ground I haven't got a working camera or I'd post pictures thanks in advance Emery
  22. Hi, I'm a gardener and I just got my first carnivorous plant, a Sarracenia Leucophylla (Franklin Co) after many years of planting and propogating other plants. I've been using the forum to get some good growing advice and have just registered... so...Hi.
