    Well, it's certainly worth a try, Cindy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Guqin, I saw one at Suntec City (one of the megastores or electronics shop). It's small at $190 or somewhere there.

    I have to agree with Cindy - I only grow lowland nepenthes now since the few sarracenia I had slowly died and I don't intend to 'waste' more money on plants that don't grow well. I also tend to grow plants that grow well like fatboy, bromeliads, ferns etc.
    You can either be a plants carer or its slave! A carer is someone who can water, repot etc but basically leaves the plant to grow undisturbed or a slave where you worry and fret every minute of the day because your plant doesn't seem well, you carry it to an air-con room you spend $100'ss on special water/cooling systems etc but in the end you forget to appreciate the simple pleasures of the plant itself and seeing it grow.
    Listen to Cindy and fatboy.
    Fatboy- thanks for your pm. Your Bali garden is great!!!!

    Hi Neil,
    At first I mistook fatboy as a plant, sorry no offence.

    Hi all,
    I do agree with Cindy, Fatboy and Neil , though I actually started CP with VFT (most still growing). Now my attitudes towards highlander CPs are; don’t buy any new one and not going extra mile for the one I already owned.

    Don’t throw out your sarr yet, I have done some research on the web:

    According to Kim & Barbara of Tristan's Carnivorous Plants in Hawaii
    “Although we were afraid that Sarracenia would not receive enough dormancy to grow here in Hawaii, they have done just fine for 3 years creating their own dormancy with photoperiod shortening in the fall and winter.”

    Closer at home;
    According to Tan Hong Yee
    “Regarding dormancy I've experienced are those of S.leucophylla. It also goes into dormancy on its own in our weather, and resumes growth after several months.

    BTW I will be at the orchid show Sunday late morning.

    Jalan Kayu, I didn't see you at the orchid festival - I was there around 1pm. I did see a tray of vft's for sale, a few pots of D.capensis and 2 stalls selling sarracenia, mainly purpurea hybrids I think. There was also several stalls selling nepenthes.
