    There has been a few topics about this butterwort lately. I have had pretty good success with these conditions. I purchased this at Lowe's quite some time ago, and the thing was looking pretty bad. I transplanted it from it's little cube it was in into a 5" pot with about 70% LFS and 30% pummice. It recieves about 4 to 5 hours of direct sunlight in the morning with bright indirect light the rest of the day. The humidity is around 60 to 70% and it sits in about 1cm of water. It has doubled in size and produced 3 flowers this spring as well as numerous plantlets.

    Hmm. It's nice when you live on the same latitude as this species. I just throw it in the bog. I wish it would gorw fater then the sphagnum though.

    P. primulaflora is one of those bizzare species that is either incredibly easy or maddeningly difficult(like D. adele).

    Is it on a window sill or outside? Mine have always done well on a SE or SW window sill, open tray, letting the water level vary. The only one that has ever given me trouble was the one I accidently dropped. It showed its displeasure by taking a week to die. Unlike Mexican pings, this one is much more sensitive to being uprooted and/or being dropped.

    It's in a terrarium in a South facing windowsill and is supplemented with a compact flourescent.

    As long as you can provide air circulation and adequate light, go for it. I know that Flytrapgurl is approaching things in similar manner. Window sills work for me, but...
