    When do VFTs and Sarrs come out of dormancy, and when should I repot them outside?

    I currently have my VFTs and Sarr in the garage for now, while they are dormant. When should I move them outside? I've read that they "wake up" towards the end of February. I want to pot them in a really nice big pot outside. Would doing so around the middle to end of February work? Since I live...

    New Nepenthe Growth

    A couple weeks ago my Nepenthes fell in my pool as a heavy hailstorm pushed it in. It sat at the bottom of my pool for 30-40 minutes until I got home from work to fish it out.

    Give the capensis an inch...

    Well they haven't taken a mile yet, but they're getting there. To be honest I'm not even going to repot the ones on the lower left, they'll just take over the new pot. Let them crowd themselves out. Bonus: one of my oldest D. capensis:

    Bog pot creation time.

    I was going to repot a D.Filiformis, S x Dana's Delight and S x Yellow Jacket into a larger bog pot with three venus flytraps and two bog orchids, but I have to wonder if this can be done safely during summer months. I think I can do it without disturbing very many roots, but I just wanted to...

    I'm still new to helis! Is this plant due for a repot and divide? Are helis prone to being set back after such a treatment?

    Winter garden work

    Are my roots coming out of the container?

    I think this are roots because when i got this plant back in August, I repotted it. Nothing was sticking out from the bottom. Does this mean I have to repot it in March in a bigger pot? Please advice, thanks

    Tuberous Drosera

    After speaking with several members here among other growers, I have realized that there are more misconceptions about successfully growing these plants than I had thought. I wrote the care sheet below last year for the NECPS members to use as a guide for their cultivation and I hope that it can...

    S. rubra ssp. alabamensis

    This guy looks like he's overwhelmed in his pot? I know you're suppose to divide them in spring but, would it be bad to divide it now??? Or repot it? What's going on with the pitchers breaking easily? Bending oveR? Any suggestions or tips to help improve this guy would be much appreciated.
