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
Hello all so i got a pinguicula accuminata as a free plant around 2month ago but the plant has never done well for me, the other plant i got was p.crassifolia which died :V. I grow my pinguiculas under a 6 watt led white light around 30cm above the plants. Medium is is equal parts of crushed coral, peat vocanic sand, volcanic rock, vermiculite and perlite. My temperature during the day ranges from 28-32 and night goes to 21-23 degree celcius. The plant is always dewless and doesnt have any of those tentacles ? I do not have a picture of it yet as i am away but i will post it as soon as i get home. Humidity is around 70% most of the time. Can any pinguicula experts enlighten me on why how to keep this plant and does any one keep pinguicula crassifolia?
