:: A CARNIVOROUS PLANT AT HOME - CULTIVATION INSTRUCTIONS 1

(For DARLINGTONIA, DIONAEA, DROSERA)
(For hardy PINGUICULA)
(For SARRACENIA, UTRICULARIA)

To cultivate these carnivorous plants, hold the following 4 advices.

1 - Repotting : as soon as buying, in a large pot fitted with plastic saucer or in a tray with water tank gauged. Do not be afraid by ridicule, it requires a depth of 20 to 40 cm minimum, and as much on the sides, whether for a single plant or four. The repotting is done every four years, renewing only the substrate.

2 - Substrate : only composed of 70% of natural peat moss (certainely not brown peat) without any addition, + 30% sand for aquarium bought in an aquarium store. Thoroughly mix the 2 elements and waterlogged.

3 - Watering : preferably use two kinds of water: rainwater harvested of course in a non-polluted area, or demineralized water (not flavored) which serves to irons steam and batteries. Let dip the base of the pot in 2 to 3 cm of water from the beginning of May to October. For pots with water reserve, place the water level to a quarter of the height gauge. In winter, from November to April, do not let water in the saucer, just keep the soil barely moist:  touch it with your index finger, a trace of moisture should remain on the finger. Watering should be done during this period on the top of the substrate.

4 - Light : essential to the growth of carnivorous plants, otherwise you will see your plants being deformed and pass from life to death.

► In springs when the frosts are finished, place them outside on a window sill, balcony, or garden, always in direct sunlight, do not get in during sudden weather changes.
 
► During winter,
in the house put them near the windows at 10 or 15 cm of the glass at the same level as the latter. Temperatures must be between 1 °C and 16 °C, for 2 or 3 months. They can grow well in a conservatory or greenhouse, if the temperatures are respected.

Never do it. Never believe it.

Never spray the plants with water.

No fertilizer, they are frugal

Do not feed with insects nor with chopped meat. They won't die of hunger, their roots allow them to draw water, and small amounts of minerals contained in the peat. The supplement is made by the catched preys.

Do not use the ultra fast trap closure of Dionaea as a vegetal gadget. Even if young children are the best audience for these  green crunchers, you must inform them about these traps. The jaw-leaf closes only three times, then dies.

:: A CARNIVOROUS PLANT AT HOME - CULTIVATION INSTRUCTIONS 2

(For BROCCHINIA, CATOPSIS)
(For tropical DROSERA, GENLISEA, NEPENTHES)
(For mexican PINGUICULA, tropical UTRICULARIA)

To cultivate these carnivorous plants, hold the following 4 advices.

1 - Repotting : as soon as buying (except for Nepenthes and Catopsis), in a large pot fitted with plastic saucer or in a tray with water tank gauged. Do not be afraid by ridicule, it requires a depth of 20 to 40 cm minimum, and as much on the sides, whether for a single plant or four. The repotting is done every four years, renewing only the substrate.

2 - Substrate : only composed of 50% of natural peat moss (certainely not brown peat) without any addition, + 50% sand for aquarium bought in an aquarium store. Thoroughly mix the 2 elements and waterlogged.


3 - Watering : preferably use two kinds of water: rainwater harvested of course in a non-polluted area, or demineralized water (not flavored) which serves to irons steam and batteries. Let dip the base of the pot in 2 to 3 cm of water from the beginning of May to October. For pots with water reserve, place the water level to a quarter of the height gauge. In winter, from November to April, do not let water in the saucer, just keep the soil barely moist:  touch it with your index finger, a trace of moisture should remain on the finger. Watering should be done during this period on the top of the substrate. For Nepenthes, keep the soil moist throughout the year, but does not allow swimming base of the pot in water. The hygrometry should be high for these plants.


4 -
Light : essential to the growth of carnivorous plants, otherwise you will see your plants being deformed and pass from life to death.Keep them in the house all year long in a moist room (bathroom), put them near the windows at 10 or 15 cm of the glass at the same level as the latter. Temperatures must be between 17 °C to 35 °C. They can grow well in a conservatory or greenhouse, if the temperatures are respected.

Never do it. Never believe it.

Never spray the plants with water. Except for Nepenthes and Catopsis

No fertilizer, they are frugal. Except for Nepenthes watered with orchid ferlilizer at the dose referred to the orchids and at the frequency of 1 time per month in winter, every 10 days from spring to autumn.

Do not feed with insects nor with chopped meat. They won't die of hunger, their roots allow them to draw water, and small amounts of minerals contained in the peat. The supplement is made by the catched preys.

Watering should be done during this period on the top of the substrate. For Drosophyllum, from May to November the upper layer of the substrate must pull away from sides of pot between two waterings. For Cephalotus which need high hygrometry, the plant can be covered by a glass bell.

4 - Light : essential to the growth of carnivorous plants, otherwise you will see your plants being deformed and pass from life to death.
Keep them in the house all year long and put them near the windows at 10 or 15 cm of the glass at the same level as the latter. Temperatures must be between 5 °C and 15 °C, for 2 or 3 months in winter and between 10 °C and 35 °C the rest of the year. They can grow well in a conservatory or greenhouse, if the temperatures are respected.

:: A CARNIVOROUS PLANT AT HOME - CULTIVATION INSTRUCTIONS 4

(For tuberous Drosera and tuberous roots Drosera)
 

To cultivate these carnivorous plants, hold the following advices.

 

In October, November, December, January, February, keep the temperature between 10 °C et 18 °C, gently resume watering without letting water in the saucer. Yellowing of the plant in spring indicates the begining of the dormant period. Then let gradualy the soil dry (except for south african Drosera) to bring the plant to a total dormancy, keep the soil almost dry by watering slightly above the ground 1 time per week until to the following October when the plant regrowth.
The substrate is a mix of 50% peat and 50% quartz sand.

PS : Upon receipt of your plants in January, February as tuber, plant immediately and follow the care described above. If plants are still not woken up in April, your plant may skip a season of growth. Wait until next winter before you decide on the failure of culture.

:: A CARNIVOROUS PLANT AT HOME - CULTIVATION INSTRUCTIONS 5

 

(For Aldrovanda and aquatic Utricularia)

 

To cultivate these carnivorous plants, hold the following advices

Arrange in the bottom of a pond or aquarium 5 to 10 cm of peat and pour demineralized water or rain water and stir. Allow the liquid to clear up: it will turn to yellow straw (the required time is a minimum of two months). Subsequently implant in the peat bottom plants companions, such as sedges, cattails, water lilies, depending on the size of your container.

Introduce microfauna, harvested in a
clean pool, and remove tens milliliters of water and pour in the water in your pound or aquarium. Finally, arrange in open water your carnivorous aquatic plants.

Test the pH, it should be between 5.5 and 6, ensure that the water remains clear, remove the algae that might form.

:: A CARNIVOROUS PLANT AT HOME - CULTIVATION INSTRUCTIONS 6

 

(For pygmy Drosera)

 

To cultivate these carnivorous plants, hold the following advices

The adult plants behave the same cultivating way as embryonic leaves as described below.

In autumn the plants produce in gemae in the center of the rosette (embyonic leaves) easily detachable with a brush, which are arranged without cover on peat mixed with sand,  and will produce a multitude of plants. The collection and seedings of these gems are needed every year to ensure the regeneration of plants, because these miniatures sundew do not often live more than a year in culture.

In December, January, February, put the pots containing the gems, between 10 °C and 15 °C, slowly resume watering without letting water in the saucer. The growth starts in the winter months up to June in summer when the plants stop their growth,  then keep the substrate barely moist until autumn and thereafter proceed to their multiplication. The substrate is a mix of 50 % peat and 50 % quartz sand.
