    All plants in this list

    Air are growing well in full sun with bottom watering. Plants sitting in a shallow tray that is constantly filled with water from well + rain. Sun dew not on this list is beginning to bloom also in this tray. Soon all will be planted in a milled sphagnum/sand mixture which, in turn, will be set down into the ground beside my greenhouse.

    When I received my carnivorous plants they were all in wonderful condition. I've had them since May and they are flourishing. I'm going to try creating a bog garden.

    Good health?

    Plant is very small with three shoots. I hope it grows to get bigger like the one in the picture. Two of them came blackish and have no died off :( *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST *** Hi Lyddia. This batch are on the smaller side, but will get larger in time. Traps typically live for a month or two and die off. This normal. The transit process can also cause older leaves to die off quicker. Just clip them off and look for new growth coming up in the center of the plant. If you need further assistance, write to use using the form on Ask The Growers.

    The specimens I received were quite strange. The shoots only produced the tiniest of traps nothing substantial; I bought 4 and so far only one has successfully revived from dormancy through very small growth. They live in a bog supplied by only distilled water around other carnivorous plants that are flourishing. *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST *** Hey, John. Sorry to hear about your flytraps. Contact us so we can assist you better.
