The collection includes 1 venus flytrap, 1 sundew (capensis or aliciae) and 2 different pitcher plants. All four plants are sent out ready potted in 9cm pots, you are now ready to start growing these fascinating plants. The plants will not need repotting until the following Spring into our com 1 in 12cm pots. The flytrap and sudew are mature, the two pitcherplants are 3 year olds. Please remember all of these plants are dormant over the winter months. Plants will be sent out ready potted

    Beginners Growing Guide
     
    Spring /Summer
     
    Keep the plants standing in a tray of rainwater or distilled water around 1-2 cm deep in a bright sunny position, South facing window sill, conservatory frost free or unheated greenhouse . I find it is best not to feed the plants yourself, if you are worried the plants are not catching enough insects just put them outside for a few days you will be surprised what they can catch by themselves, especially the pitcher plants.
    The venus flytrap may flower, it is best to cut these off, as this can weaken the plant. The other three plants (if you have the ‘Beginners Collection’) can be left to flower. Never apply fertilizer to the plants.
     
     Autumn /Winter
     
     Around the end of October sometimes a little earlier you will notice some of the foliage starts to brown or die off, this is normal and nothing to worry about. At this time keep the plants just damp rather than wet, and cut off any of the dead foliage. All four of these plants need a cold Winter rest, so if you are growing your plants indoors, this is the time to move them out to a cooler position say an unheated greenhouse , porch or something similar for the Winter months. The minimum Winter temperature should be 5c, and around the end of February, plants will start to come back into growth, this is a good time to re – pot if necessary (our COM1 is an ideal compost for all four plants), never ‘over pot’, there is no need, a 12cm pot will be fine for each plant. Plants that were moved out for the Winter can now be put back on a sunny windowsill and stood back into a tray of rainwater, March brings very quick growth and flowers, and the fly catching begins all over again …..
     
     
    JUST REMEMBER TO ALWAYS USE RAIN WATER - HAPPY COLLECTING!

    The plants came really well packed and protected, the quality of the plants was far better than I had imagined. one day after delivery the plants looked even better when they had settled down!

    Plants even better than in the photo, really great value!

    Will be back for further plants soon.
