    Need Help with Pink Venus

    My first year with the plant it thrived and this year it clumped like crazy and they all survived this summer. Its getting close to dormancy and I don't think any of the off shoots are going to make it. I thought I was suppose to divide in the spring. Anyways here is a pic, would love some info on what you think.

    Thanks




    The original plant got pushed to the far right side of the pot

    You had a similar problem earlier this year:

    I think its all related to your media and/or watering..that seems to be the common denominator.

    1. what is the media made of?
    2. I see you have some perlite in there..Is it perhaps "Miracle grow" brand perlite?
    3. What is your watering procedure for the summer? trays? how deep?
    4. What kind of water are you using?
    5. Where are the growing all summer? sun level?

    For me, its clearly overwatering. Your plants show typical sings of drowned roots.

    Odd, considering I have flytraps that regularly get flooded over the top, and they're usually fine.... on the other hand, I have dry conditions otherwise, so maybe they balance out....
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Dionaea like drier conditions than Sarracenia. I recommend a sandier mix.
