Hey guys, my latest batch of plants i bought from POLAND. They arrived the other day and i planted them straight away, some indoors and others outdoors (larger plants). I am limited for room so most went outside. The Heliamphora i bought was a truely beautiful specimen so i planted instantly and thought that would grow the best out of all the CPs, but it's been slowly 'wilting' since? It's planted here in Mid-Wales, UK so has the change of environment had an effect? Looking at others care guides, i come to the conclusion he was probably better grown indoors http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u488/owenmanuel/IMAG0605_zpsd90xyza7.jpg
This is my FIRST proper attempt at growing carnivorous plants outdoors. I have spent years with them on the windowsills and i finally decided it would be nice to try and create one outdoors which i have put off ever since my expensive cobra lily died the second it went outside (I now believe this was because he was in the full sun!) The Sarracenia traps were already brown in their pots and due to the size they grew, decided these must be first to go outside, along the troth i have also added in another type of Sarracenia and also a Venus Fly Trap and a Sundew which wasn't 'thriving' indoors. My only problem is i don't have a tray beneath this trough so i am relying on memory to keep the soil very moist each day, luckily the location of this there is plenty of sun, and when it does rain it gets nice coverage. Before planting i mixed some of the 'E-coco Carnivorous Plant Fertilizer' which is made from worms or something and mixed with water. Day 1
