    Thanx for the nice comments everybody!
    Elforest: For substrate I am using peat/silica sand (70/30) for S. psittacina and white lithuanian peat/perlite (60/40) for other species. I only grow these beacuse I specialize on drosera genus. If I had more space for my collection I would get into Sarracenia more, they are beutiful when they colour up. I think the most important for the substrat is very good drainage , especially in the fall when the weather is cooler. It prevemts the root rot in case of overwatering.(I use pebbles and coarse river sand).

    I am back with november pictures. We havent had much sun lately and the weather became clumsy and cold. We had several nights with 25F temps, but sarracenia still grows and looks very pretty. They are really tough this year!:-) Pictures taken today.

    Nice plants! My cousin used to say "its sweaty out here" when the weather was hot. I love "clumsy" to describe November!
