    Its too late to be inducing dormancy... Most established sarrs are already throwing flower stalks already. No harm in waiting till next October/November for sarr dormancy-- Yours probably is fresh out of the flask.

    Actually I'm currently using melted snow to water them, since I don't have something yet to catch rain water. Our water over here is quite soft, so maybe if I test the water I can use that to water them. I also have a pond, is the water from that also a good source?
    We use pong water at Meadowview without a problem. The soil composition in your area will greatly affect the pH and TDS. How close do you live to an industrialized area?

    Oh, Belgium, nice! You're in good climate then. I'd guess it's perfectly safe to use pond water, since your watersheds are in pretty good shape. If I'm not mistaken, there are some naturalized Sarracenia purpurea in your country.

    I live quite far away from any industrie, we live on the 'country side'

    I don't know!
    Haven't seen them yet, but maybe on the other side of Belgium

    Just a little update.

    I repotted my plants yesterday, it was a real pain and I had to do it over. But that was really my fault, I didn't wet the peat moss enough, so when I did water it, everything sunk in. Now my plants look a little bit beat up and to top it off, my mom dropped my drosera and my VFT

    Will they be okay?

    Should I add an extra light source?
