    Thanks . . .

    Last month, they were underwater during the February rains and were pathetic-looking to say the least. Now, they are already trapping things left and right and a couple have attempted to bloom . . .

    Man, very nice traps! My Fred Meyer's plant refuses to grow. I put it through dormancy, and cut off TWO forming flower stalks, and now it has sat there with pathetic excuses for leaves, not moving a bit. I only hope it can get on the right track before summer comes, or it might be a rough year for this poor Dionea.

    Any ideas on giving it a jump start into spring?

    The Fred Meyer's Cube of Death -- I know it well from the Salem area. I would give it as much sun as you can without cremating it (you'd be surprised at how much they tolerate and require for health), and really think about replacing its stock compost with a fresh 1:1 mix of sphagnum peat moss and horticultural sand (my personal favorite) and place it in a larger pot. New compost really perks them up, replaces often mineral-laden soil from hard water -- 'tweaks the pH" -- and I usually replace it each year . . .

    Thanks, it is a terrible joke and I am sure that I will pay in blood -- but I was in a foul state of mind at that time . . . and now . . .
