    Looking at the traps again on the picture on my phone, I can't tell if maybe the traps are just so immature that they look cupped. :( I'm going to go out and take pictures now.

    How rare is false...

    All I know is I have a non-cupped VFT that put up a flower stalk that now has a cupped false vivaprous VFT.

    I still haven't gotten any rooting hormone. I better get on that. Hard to find any with...

    Thanks, BigBella. Is Rootone something that a Lowe's or Home Depot would carry this time of year? I've never had rooting hormone, because I was always scared of accidentally getting one that isn't...

    A Couple Questions about False Vivipary

    I get several cases of false vivipary every year. I have a couple questions:

    Is there a best time/way to transplant the new plant from the flower stalk to some peat/perlite? Should I include...
  5. All my plants, except the nep, are still outside,...

    All my plants, except the nep, are still outside, with lows dippibg into the low 30s. My question now is, do my sundews need to go dormant now? Do they even go dormant? Or if I bring them inside,...

    I googled Tarnok flower stalks in Fall to see about this, because I saw my Tarnok putting up flower stalks now, and I see I had the same question 2 years ago! I'll be darned, I don't remember that at...
  7. Hmmm. Why pick a temperature 2 or 3 degrees...

    Hmmm. Why pick a temperature 2 or 3 degrees below freezing? Why not freezing? Just curious.

    I get scared, but haven't lost a plant due to temps yet. I've only lost D. adelae because they're...

    Even capensis? This thread led me to believe that D. capensis can't freeze.

    Also, unrelated: I watched a video today from Sarracenia Northwest, and saw about harvesting Sarrs seeds. Then I went...

    I brought in all the sundews and left the VFTs and Sarrs out.
  10. There's a freeze warning tonight, and I'm...

    There's a freeze warning tonight, and I'm wondering which I should bring in. I already brought the nep into the garage. Just being in my sundews, and let the sarrs and VFTs endure the mild freeze?...

    Thanks, Scottychaos. I never trimmed off still-green pitchers for winter before, but I'm going to have to if I intend to fit my plants on a shelving unit.

    I do have a few digital thermometers...
  12. Are you going by the pictures of my VFTs last...

    Are you going by the pictures of my VFTs last spring, not currently? The pictures in the garage are not current; they were just to show how the shelves are not ideal in the garage because of lack of...

    My big pots are probably a foot tall and a little over a foot across, I'd guess. I have no intension of leaving them off the ground outside for winter. The only heat source is the ol' earth at...
  14. That's the big advantage of getting to keep them...

    That's the big advantage of getting to keep them at home; I can put them out when the days get warmer and still bring them in at night for the freezing or frosty nights. It's a lot of work, and I...

    My garage gets plenty cold. It gets below freezing, which is a worry for me. It's attached to heated rooms on two sides, but still gets below freezing, but not too far, and probably not for very...
  16. Winter's is beginning to start. Had a frost...

    Winter's is beginning to start. Had a frost advisory the other night. A major advantage of having the plants at home with me is I can put them in the sun during the day and back in if the nights...

    Protected area.... I'd forgotten about wildlife if I bury the plants under mulch in the woods. Wildlife is the whole reason I have chicken wire up. A raccoon (I think) shredded some of my plants...

    There's light; the deck is about 15 feet high, and it'll get sun in the evenings from SW, but light throughout the day. Oh, maybe you meant because of darkness caused by the leanto. I was picturing...

    You grin like you're not serious, but I may have to find foster homes.

    I could probably find a friend locally for some of my capensis pots to stay above freezing, but I have too many big Sarr pots...
  20. Thanks for the reply. I thought they had to be...

    Thanks for the reply. I thought they had to be planted in the ground to survive the winter. I'd have freezing air all around the pot, so the soil would freeze solid. One of my Sarrs even says not...
  21. Help Me Brainstorm How to Keep Plants Through Winter -- Not Inside -- Frugally

    It's seeming more and more like I'll have to get rid of my plants real soon. But I really don't want to. :-(

    This summer, I got real bad chest pain, ended up going to the hospital, got 300 cc of...
  22. Is this a fungus? Looks burnt, doesn't grow [Pics]

    I've had VFTs for a few years now, and I know about how they get burnt-looking if you rescue one from Lowe's and throw it in the sun, and they always come back making leaves that tolerate the sun. ...

    I sprayed with Bayer Rose and Flower Insect Killer for the few aphids I found. I have Safer brand fungicide I can use if I notice this continuing. I guess I should snip off the fungal stalks.

    Flower stalks look burned [Pics]

    Does anyone know what causes this? I have plenty of healthy flower stalks on all my pitcher plants, but I saw a few like this. I bring them in when there's a frost or freeze warning. Maybe I...

    It cooled down outside so I've just been keeping Mr. ventricosa up in the glass block window, and a nice green, not spotted yellow, leaf came out, growing real nice, and the basal is doing great. It...
