I had two spoon leaf sundews and two Venus fly traps in one bigger plastic pot with drainage and I was bottom watering with distilled water. I think I left too much water in the bottom and the sundews started turning brown. I bought new sphagnum moss and I took the plants out and let them sit for maybe two hours which I think was even worse because then they got completely brown and dry. I sprayed them with distilled water and re planted them in their own smaller pots with a mixture of peat moss, sphagnum moss and perlite. They don’t seem to be getting much better and I’m not sure if they’re dead and I’m just wasting my time. I don’t think they got any root rot because I didn’t see anything when I took them out and they didn’t smell bad. also the Venus fly traps were looking a bit bad but they seem to be doing much better than the sundews so it’s really them I’m worried about they don’t seem to be so dry and crispy anymore but it could be cuz I misted them to try to make them more moist or whatever and they’re sitting in new fresh little pots but I just can’t figure out if they’re dead or okay or what What should I do? ☹️ (they get 14-16 hours a day under a blue/red grow light and a heat lamp to keep them around 75-80 degrees and I have a little cup over them for humidity)
Hi Guys, I’m new here and new to growing carnivorous plants so I would like to get some help from you please. I just bought my first Drosera Capensis, or that’s what I think it is…Could you please confirm? The plant doesn’t look too good in my opinion, the leaves are beginning to get brown and die starting from the top and no dew is produced at all. I got it fro a super-market where it probably didn’t see the light of the day and the soil was dried out. I live in Romania where is now autumn and I don’t have direct sunlight on my windows. Can I grow the plant without special artificial light? Is the room’s light bulb enough? Do you think I can rescue it, and if yes how? Should I repot the plant, in what kind of soil, is general flower soil good? I think there are actually two or three plants in there… should I split them apart in different pots? Thank You, Catalin
I just received my order from CZPlants. Nepenthes truncata had some brownish spots on the leaves. Is this a serious problem? Should I do something with the plant (treating it with fungicides or something like that)? Or maybe I can just wait and hope that it will grow some new leaves without brown spots? Is it safe to keep this plant in the terrarium together with my other nepenthes? I am a little paranoid about getting any infections there.
