I've had this plant for about 6 months and I just re potted it about a week ago. It started off in some moss placed in a cup, but I realized this wasn't the best idea, so I bought some carnivorous plant soil (peat moss, perlite, vermiculite, and some sand) and I gently removed it from the moss...
A few weeks ago I decided to do some experiments with growing a few of the capensis in a different media: cotton. My first reason for picking this material is that it fit a few of the criteria for a good media. It is clean, retains water well, and would promote rooting. My source of choice was...
Anemic D. Spatulata- the leaves are not forming properly.

I've been active on the CPUK forum for a while, but that seems to be going too quiet, so I thought I'd come and join here.
Been growing CPs for only a couple of years, but in that time I've gone from one D. Capensis on my office windowsill to...

Is there something in particular that causes drosera capensis to flower? Certain number of hours of daylight or an over abundance of food? I brought my plants inside for the winter 2 weeks ago (zone 8) and put them in my grow tent only to have them explode into flower again, some plants with...
I have some Drosera capensis seeds that I want to germinate. However, winter is soon upon us and indoor temps will be as low as 60 degrees f (~15c) in the growing room. I stuck an old adhesive reptile heating pad to the bottom of one of those disposal foil lasagna baking dishes, so now I have a...
Hello, yesterday I picked up a pinguicula Caerulea, it's my first ping and I could really use some tips to keep it alive. I know it's a warm temperate species, and that I need to use distilled, RO, or rain water only. I'm in zone 9b on the west coast and I'm not sure if it needs to be grown...
