Hello Everybody

Recommended Posts

My name is Kyle and I am new here! I do a bit of fish keeping at the moment but looking to refocus onto the growing of carnivorous plant's. I have previously grown venus fly traps and that was the spark that got me interested in more. Well I hope to talk to other members here and gather information so I can begin.

Hi and welcome to the forum. After being on here for a month or so you'll have access to the Sales page which is a good way to begin your collection.

Thank's for the warm welcome! It's been a while. Summer 2018 I had a very successful VFT grow along with an "Adrian Slack"

I love growing carnivorous plants. Such a beautiful evolutionary tool they developed. Nature is fascinating. 

Unfortunately over the past few months, constant frrezing and thawing has killed my VFT's. I went to repot and the rhizome was brown, and soft with a terrible smell. Rhizome rot it seems. 

I recently purchased 3 plants of B52 VFT's and Drosera binata Giant from a Nursery in the UK. They arrived on thursday. Doing well enough under a 200 watt CFL. 14 hours of light per day. Keeps them around 28-29 Celsius. 

I purchased 5 more B52 from another UK nursery and they get shipped February 1st. 

Excited for this year. Next winter I am storing all plants in a refrigerator for dormancy. 


I am using 100% New Zealand long fiber spagnum moss in tall 3 liter pots.
