    I change the soil every year shortly before the dormacy is over. For this plant, I used some glass sand and peat moss. But I swiched to a mix of peat/glasssand/fine gravel and some small clayballs for my new plants. The plants grew only under artifical light until I moved into a new flat 3 weeks ago where I can grow them outside. Some of my Sarracenias have burnmarks due to the sun (especially the psittacina), but I think that they will adapt to it, if not, I will move the sensitve plants into the shadow. Oh, one more thing- I made a little experiment after the dormacy: I let the sister plant, which was the bigger one last year, flower from all vegetation points (I think five) and cut off the flowerstalks of this one. Guess what, that one who did flower is a tiny pity plant, I hope she will surive the winter. So in future, I wont let my VFTs flower.


    BTW- Here is the same plant at end of April, only grown with artifical light
