    My sarrs look like crap this year

    And I don't know why. Last year they got a late start, but ended the season looking fantastic. This year they have just struggled the entire time, and I'm not seeing any signs of the better late season pitchers I was hoping for. I haven't changed anything, they are growing in the same spot, media is in good shape, water is clean, so I can't figure out why they struggled. Given the same conditions they thrived in last year, I cannot pinpoint what the fault might be.

    Maybe insect pests? Mealybugs seem to be the main problem for me...

    blame it on the alphabet volcano...spring came unusually late this year, could have thrown off their biological clocks...

    Mine look like crap again too. I know exactly why - overcast and 70's all summer long. The leucos managed to put up a few pitchers last week after 2 days in the 85's, but now it's back to chilly (for Sarrs) and overcast

    Mine looked excellent but never flowered. (leucophylla put out bud in july) Maybe theres a connection between our locations? (warmer here )


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    I'm glad I'm not the only one. Mine aren't doing much of anything exciting either.

    Hmmmm - I wonder if it's a left coast thing. My oreo's & flava's looked great early season. Most looked good mid season & now most of my leuco's are really putting on a nice show. We've had a really wet year with just a few weeks where we got super hot and dry (105*F +). That period sent the oreo's into summer dormancy mode - probably like they get in their natural habitat.

    ... and another clone with a friend munching on one of the 6 gazillion stink bugs trying to enter our house...


    There are some nice forms with much more red but I didn't bother to snap any pics ...
    All the best,
