How do they look..and do you reccomend doing anything differently

mattmega4(9)July 26, 2009

I have a Drosera filiformis x intermedia - Hybrida, Serracenia: flava, minor, and purpurea, and Venus Fly Trap Dente all in a cat litter box with distilled water in full all day sun. The only thing i regret is that the flava and minor are in the same pot cuz when i purcahsed them i only had enough cp potting mixture for 1 pot..and now i dont wana put them through shock so i think i'll wait till next spring to repot..unless ya'll think otherwise...

(i received the vft and sundew from the day i took this picture)

i think im doing everythin okie doke but u never know

you can repot your two Sarracenia but it may take a 5-a weak to recover from shock

Your sarrs may do good but that's too much water for vft and drosera. I would use a separate tray or lower the water level. An inch or less should do. Personally I only keep about 1/4 - 1/2 inch of water and leave the tray dry for a day or two between watering to keep mosquitos to a minimum.
