    WTF?

    Anyway, i have a few of those growing in with my neps (and onw with D. dichotoma), and i like them there as companion plants, i think it gives the pot a "fuller" look. If it becomes a problem, then i uproot it.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    What I said in Spanish: that's it's better to uproot them before they get too big because the roots can tangle up with the CPs'.

    Hello guys! thank you for speaking in my language {Spanish} "Veo que varios lo hablan, y para mi entender muy bien" Shokuchuu, your Spanish is good, where di you learned?

    I was wondering if we can use another languages, beside English here. Is it possible?

    Nepenthes gracilis: "Est que ce possible que nous pouvons parler ici Espagnol, Francaise, ou otres langues?"

    And thank you for the info about the weed. I think it looks good with the plants, but if it is causing more problems than a good aesthetic look, I should better take them away;-)

    I think we better stick to English, after all, PFT is US-based! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I learned my Spanish during my 3-year stay en la ciudad de Mexico. That and I already spoke French so it was easy to learn.

    Rushes don't do harm if you leave them alone. It's just when they start to grow into monsters that they can take over the container. Bythat time, I'd recommend trimming the plant down as low as possible so it won't regenerate.

    Ok... So I can leave them there and when I see that they are growing to much I shoukld cut them at surface level? They are very small, none of them have excided 2 inches. So once I see them grow more than my CP I should cut them.

    I think they look great, they give this "wild and natural look" that I love so much. I did not think in cut them, but this seems to be beter. Shokuchuu, what do you sugest, should I keep my eyes on them and never let them grow bigger than a couple of inches, or should I take them away?

    I am between aesthetic and health

    Here's a big rule I forgot to mention earlier: If the rushes are growing in LFS with a delicate CP, you'll find them increasigly hard to pull out without damaging the plant you are actually growing. I've had no problem pulling them out when growing in a more peaty-sand mix however.
