...I thought I'd post something in the Sarracenia section. Along with my Flytraps, I have also pulled my truck load of Sarrs out of dormancy. I acquired quite a few from the Purpman last year (instant Sarracenia collection!). My only regret is that in the great furvour of potting them up, I did not label any, not a one (d'oh). I may need help later with ID's. As with my Flytraps, new growth is visible already in some of the Sarrs. Pics to follow soon. Happy Spring everybody!

...it's finally all gone! It has been Spring here for the past week. Last night was -2 but other than that they're calling for above zero nights and double digit positive days for all of next week! My plants are staying outside and I will bringing out the rest from the basement as well. Que sera sera, I've been waiting a long time for this!

...thanks Sokkos! No, I don't use perlite in any of my mixes. This is my universal mix. 2/1, peat/sand, I use two grades of washed sand in my mix. First Spring with adult Sarracenia for me. Looking forward to the flowers.

bonfield: I've decided to finally reveal my best-kept secret for growing healthy Neps: Just spit on them every few days, the enzymes in saliva help them to better absorb the fertilizer I spray them with!
