Lowe’s rescue

by Mpott302 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 1:24 am

my local Lowe’s got a shipment of VFTs in recently. I couldn’t go home without one... I wanted to save them all

It’s in a tray of water and under light now. I’ll repot it soon

I'm the same way. Everyone I go there, I wince. My store keeps them in an area with no actual sun. They use heavily chlorinated water, and they stay in that box. I think I'm at 15 or 20 rescues now.

Same with ours. They’re indoors with the closest light being 20ft or so above them

Thanks! Don't forget me lol. How do you deal with the water requirement differences in the plants?

I don’t lol. Everything gets the same light and water. There were a couple types of sundews that weren’t taking the dormancy conditions well so I removed them. All the VFT and pitcher plants are still in there and right now I’m cold, low water, and lower light.

I did lose one plant this past summer

Yeah, I was thinking the sundews required more water, so how was it balanced. Do you bring them in for the winter? I need to look up directions for a bog garden.
