I like drosera.
The ants won't dissolve completely. The plants can’t digest the exoskeleton of the insects it catches.
I'm only been growing CPs for a few months, so I can’t tell you why it’s turning brown.
What is that thing that looks like a split rock?
For a start, give that plant some light. I'm surprised anything could fit in those weak, light starved pitchers!
johnnyfrye: how and where do you grow that sarracenia? outdoors or indoors? i agree with alexis, it does look a bit light starved... was it a hardware store type rescue thing?
in the fall, (like many of my sars now) they get the "spots" and some pitchers from earlier in the year are turning brown... its gettin' ready for dormancy! my plants are very much alive, but its just gettin ready to go to winter "sleep"
also: some of my capensiseseseses (thats a plural of a plural... LOL) are in a terrarium, some outdoors, and some just on a window -- i don't think you necessarily need the cover ...
poolboy -- the split rock is just that, a split rock. (google the name: Pleiospilos nelii) cool plants, i have a few mixed in between greenish grey rocks that look similar to it... its a pretty cool Genus of plants...
