    you can find healthy plants at places like Lowes, ive got a very nice Ping from there that is blooming at the moment. i have a large number of pots(prolly 20) all in the same tray. there are sundews, Pings, Sarrs, and a VFT. ive noticed no problems as long as all the species like the same conditions.

    Thumbs up

    Hey Krom! That D.adelae you purchased from Lowes is a perfect beginners sundew. I bought two pathetic looking specimens from Lowes last summer and placed them in a large brandy snifter with 100% LFS as the medium. (This species doesn't require direct sunlight to be healthy either) I placed the bowl on a bright but sunless north facing windowsill and other than an occasional watering did nothing else with it all winter. By January the two "parent" plants had died. However, they had already sent several underground shoots through the moss which resulted in dozens of new plants. The snifter is literally overflowing with them now. You should have an easy time with this one. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    beautiful to hear! Hope it pans out as well as I am hoping. Time will tell no doubt. I am going to New Mexico soon to my sister's wedding. Just out of curiousity... are CPs allowed in luggage should I find one there? My sister said that she sees them there off an on, but I am kind of worried what airlines would think of transportation of live plants. Seeing I am in the same country, I wouldn't think it was a problem. Anyone know?

    you better be talking about bringing plants back from a garden center! wild collecting is extremely frowned upon, it makes people furious and it causes chaos and extinction. Wild collecting is the number one sin in the Savage Bible.

    but if you want to bring plants back that were grown in TC, i don't see why they wouldn't let you. there might be some paperwork to fill out but i don't think it'll be a big deal. i've never brought plants on an airplane so i dunno.

    Heavens no.. I would never take them out of their natural environment! Perhaps I will just send it through the mail to avoid problems. Put it on rush delivery so I can get them home. Was just curious if you can bring Cps on planes.

    Got another question.... I thought Perlite was Perlite.... and Miracle Gro Perlite was just the brand..... is it loaded with nutrients and bad perlite for CPs? My CPs are starting to perk up after I transplanted them into the mix... but now I am a bit paranoid that I might be killing them in the long run with this Micracle Gro Perlite.

    Should I let them go with it or will it be bad for them? My venus flytraps are opening since I put them in the new environment yesterday and one of them that was laying on the ground is starting to lift itself up, also a sundew leave is sticking up that was laying down. I am thinking it is okay, but I am scared about the long run. Little advice about the Miracle Gro Perlite?
