Carniverous Plants

Posted: 05/07/2012 at 11:44

Just picked up 3 of these for 40p each from a local shop - thought I would give them a try as some thing different

My experience many years ago of venus fly traps is not good-probably playing with the traps is not what you are supposed to do.

These 3 are the small pitcher type and seem to be growing just in moss and in 2 inch pots-I know you are supposed to use rain water and keep them moist-has anybody got any other tips like repotting at any time?

They are going to be kept indoors.

As part of my war on terror or what some people call flies-I have bought three pitcher plants that I spotted for 40p each just now and a insect screen from Amazon-this must end.

Anybody any tips on pitcher plants?

Glad you had a nice day out Flower-I love the way you say you went to Germany as in the same way we say we go to Sainsbury's

When they get to about 4/5 inches-if you don't pick they just keep getting bigger and that slows down production

I don't think it is vital- I had one of those given to me a few year ago -just attached it at a fence panel 4 foot from the ground-I seem to remember seeing them on GW with TB around the same height.

Nope-things with wings-not Wet Arrows-though am considering a machine gun.

How & when erisimum & scabious cuttings?

Posted: 05/07/2012 at 09:56

Erisimum now-just pull a shoot away from the plant with a bit of a heel attached, trim and pop in some compost-cover with a plastic bag and they root in about 3 weeks-I found they rooted quicker that way than in the normal cutting way

They are completly hardy.

To prolong flowering remove the dying stems.

Nope-but it is for something that has been annoying me-that limits it

Hot threads- lots of viewings or recent answers- also a range of Chinese restaurants in Manchester

What's the weather like in your area?

Posted: 05/07/2012 at 09:27

It is dry at the moment and we are supposedly set for a dry day-those in the East and Midlands prepare for some heavy wet stuff over night
