    Sarracenia purpura fall colors

    Good afternoon, terraforums. I obtained an S. Purpura last summer and in fall it turned bright red/purple. It had some purple veining in the summer, but this was solid red. Anyone else seen this in S. Purpura? Are there any other sarrs that exhibit this "fall color"? Thanks.

    Boiling spagnum?

    Good morning, terraforums. I am planning to re-pot one of my vft's soon and was planning to use some lfs that I've had sitting around. I heard that it's best to boil spagnum before using it with CP's to remove any minerals. Is there any truth to this?

    Hi from Minne-snow-ta

    Well I finally did it. I've joined Terraforums. I was encouraged by a fellow CP grower, and have been reluctant. I normally hang out on OCPS which is a small friendly community of folks, who share many of my growing conditions. So, joining Terraforums feels a bit like a first trip to a big...
