    Req, sars aren't neps they NEED and LOVE the bright light and heat. That is the problem! But bugs could also be in the root system...I dont know how to check them other than transplanting them. Also about the water they live in bogs naturally...maybe leave the tray to dry for a day? Unless you're doing a bog setup... Anything I missed?

    Alright. I got plants last spring. They went through dormancy during which time I cut off all the old growth as it died off. Plants are now getting full sun for at least 8-12 hours a day. I refill the tray as it dries, yet ensure that the plants do no dry out completely.

    It looks to me as if they are light starved. If they were burning in the sun then the transition of light levels was to abrupt. Nothing to be done at this point.

    Since the equinox has passed you probably won't see much more growth.

    Given your climate you should be able to grow them outdoors all year round although you probably need to protect them from the rain in winter.

    Do you suggest then, that I leave them in the sun for several hours a day and then put them back in the shade, gradually increasing their sun exposure over several days, if not weeks? I'm worried though; if the plants do not attain their proper growth and feed, thus fertilising themselves naturally, will they still be able to return the following spring?

    That's what you should have done. At this point it doesn't matter. And given your summer temperatures as I suggested before some partial shade in the afternoon would probably be advisable.

    Sounds like a good plan.

    Yes.




    You may also want to check for earthworms. They add nutrients to the soil, and kill the Sarrs.
