Hey guys. I am pretty new to all this.
I have these two plants next to each other in a mini bog. P. planifolia and P. primulifolia. The planifolia is going gangbusters but the primuilflora has declined from a small vigorous colony to one plant barely making it.
Everyone is probably going to scream but, this bog is a glazed container that I painted roofing tar on the inside to make water proof. The medium is half peat, half sand. I didn't wash either - I'm a dork. The fly traps, sundews and red butterwort are doing fantastic, better than I ever hoped. Sarracenia and the primulifolia are distorted and very unhappy, I moved the sarracenia into plastic (as an emergency measure) with pure long fiber spaghnum because they were dying so quickly. I only use rainwater and distilled water.
Now you know all the details, is my primulifolia really that much different from the planifolia, so much so that it is almost dead?
