Hi I am a new member and I would like to get some advices for my carnivorous plants.
1-Yesterday I bought a Venus fly trap at Reno Depot and it looks small, so is it mature? will it flower next year? is it stressed (people usually say plants bought from stores are not in good conditions)? Is it weak? because its leaves are really thin like less than 1 mm. When do I have to let it go dormant?
2-I had sown some Drosera seeds today, those of tokaiensis and binata (red). I would like to know in how many days will I see them sprouting/the seedlings?
3-I have two bulbs for the plants : one is an incandescent 60w grow light, the other (cool white) is a compact fluorescent 13w 4100k 900 lumens. I keep the incandescent bulb further away from the plants than the incandescent bulb. Are those two good for my plants?
Thank you in advance!
