    P. Primuliflora care?


    Hi so I just found two primuliflora butterworts in this garden center today, they looked liked they needed a home. Right now I have them in a small tupperwear container that is ten inches from a desk lamp. I read online that they like high humitity.


    If anyone else has suggestions let me know.

    Right now from the look of those plants I would give them 100% humidity until they recover.

    No they are not prone to mold at all as long as they are given proper light levels. Just put another Tupperware on top of them or a layer of saran wrap if the Tupperware is taller than the tops of plants.

    Wow I've never seen such sad looking butterworts, hopefully you can get them to recover. I'd be careful about how much light you give them as this species prefers lower light levels and will probably burn even easier than normal when stressed like this. It's also a warm temperate species and is expecting cooler temperatures this time of year, though it's probably already confused about seasons after being in the store.

    Right now I would worry more about helping them recover from what appears to be acclimation shock, than worry about winter dormancy, and they definitely are in need of 100% humidity right now.

    I'll do my best at trying to get it to recover.... I hope it doesn't die on me.
