    Question Help! Plants dying....need info

    fyi this is my first year where i am really trying to grow carnivorous plants.

    Ok so recently I purchased a bunch of carnivorous plants. Varying from aldrovanda, drosera, pings, nepenthes, to utricularia.

    I have been growing them in my room with my window open so that they would get plenty of light but now that we are in summer the heat is way to high. I tried to grow my plants outside however it just burned most of my plants and killed some. So now they are growing in my room again under regular lights however i know that those reqular lights don't help any but for allowing people to see the plants. Now to top it off the new plants that i bought like humidity i guess. So some of them are slowly dying away because they dont have proper lighting and or proper watering/humidity.....lol maybe i should have started a little slower but i figured i could do it....guess not

    so if any one could give me tips on lighting, watering, humidity, and other growing conditions for these plants much would be appreciated.


    i really good with the utricularia and they were growing fine until i tried to put them outside......so i put them back to where they were but they still arent doing good

    aldrovanda
    u.livida
    u.inflata
    u.longifolia
    capensis red - seedlings
    p.essariana
    p.moransis
    p.kewensis
    p.cycloseta
    s. leucophylia

    and i am not sure what kind of nep this is.

    You're Nepenthes looks like "Ventricosa"

    Seeing that you're from California, I think that low humidity is a problem. Also, Aldrovanda is only for experienced growers because from what I've read it's a challenging plant.

    your nep is ventrata. The plants will burn if you put them outside. Try hardening them. Place them outside for 1 hour a day, then a few days latter increase it to say 2, and keep doing it until you think they are ready.

    Ahmad thank you...I'm definately not experienced but It is growing....it has split from 6 strands to 13....i have killed it before many times but this time I am growing it in an aquarium set up like a pond....so it has tons of food to eat

    thank you for the id whether it be ventricosa or ventrata.

    That is indeed a ventrata. You can't confuse the two unless it's producing juvenile pitchers.


    Jesus. I thought you had been here for years.

    I know.. that's what surprised me. What's sad is that this isn't the first time this has happened.

    At least I didn't call you mike.
