    Bog Sarr Die Off

    I'll try to get some pics soon. I just spent a few hours checking the rhizomes and they all seem fine (I cut into a few of them to check the interiors.) However, I discovered that the bog itself slopes into the back corner where the dying Sarrs are located. This slope pulls water away from the...

    Bog Sarr Die Off

    So lately I've noticed something disturbing in my bog. After a strong start to the growing season, many of my plants seem to be suffering from untimely demises. This is my second year with the bod garden so I'm not sure what's wrong as the situation hasn't changed since last year with the...

    Members in Utah, sound off. . .

    Sorry 'bout the delay, I've actually been dormant on TF for 15 months, but I'm back and willing to talk CPs now that things have settled down a little in my life.

    A quick update

    So I realized today that I haven't been on TF in a while, so I wanted to take few minutes to post a quick update about what I've been doing for the last 15 months, it's been quite busy. Around the time of my last post I had just graduated with my degree in Communications and was looking for a...

    Bog garden experiment, month 3

    Well, I finally got up the guts to try a Bog Garden this winter, it's nothing big but my sarrs needed a colder winter than the last few, and definitely got one this year. I got it all mulched and protected, but there is a little voice inside me saying that I'm doomed. I'm just going to ignore...

    Moved to Utah :(

    Welcome to Utah, the challenge of growing CPs in a dry climate is terrifying but fun, I wish you luck. Sorry I don't have any pings that are happy right now or I would gladly give you some. My heli is still too small for divisions but I'll keep you in mind when it's big enough.

    Plant education

    I have taught a CP class to adults and I can only tell you a little as far as how I would teach kids. I used 'The Savage Garden" as a basis for my class, but for kids I would probably go to the juvenile section of the library and look at books like 'hungry plants, etc.' there are tons of them...

    The dumbest thing I have ever done..... To a CP

    When I was 12 I had a planted terrarium with potting soil, a VFT, D. aldelae, and a Nep all sharing the soil - it didn't last long. Edit: Previous Comment Removed

    Pitcher Plant Suggestions

    I've had great experiences with purpurea, flava, rubra, and minor. Any hybrid or species that catches your eye, I recommend checking out cpphotofinder to see what they all look like, in Dover you should be able to grow them year round with minimal winter protection.

    Safety Of My Fertilizers For Foliar Feeding

    Thanks Bella, I did a little more research on Urea, it's really only useful for soil fertilization which is not what I will be doing. The other stuff is safe enough though, plus there are a lot of micronutrients in it. Got the information I needed.

    Safety Of My Fertilizers For Foliar Feeding

    I just wanted to drop a quick line here to get some responses to confirm my own research: I have two different fertilizers that I wish to use for foliar feeding this year, please realize these are fertilizers I currently own for other plants and did not buy them just for CPs I will likely do...

    Gimmie-Gimmie sydrome

    I totally agree with this, I have never sent a PM for a trade request where I demanded that I get what I want. I have had some people PM me and I have been pleased will the overall respect that I get, but then again there are exceptions. Thanks to everyone that has posted in this thread, it is...
