help wiht various plants
    #4615194 - 09/03/05 03:40 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I have some edelweiss seeds and I'm pretty confused about what to do with them. On the paper that came with them it says I should keep them at 70F for 4 weeks, then at 39 for 6wks and then at 50 until they germinate. On the internet I read an article which stated that they will grow if simply sown in plain earth and basta.
I also have some venus flytraps. Its paper says I should provide temps of 72 or higher. The sundew should not stay in temps over 41Fand the Washingtonia Robusta Mexican Fan Palm shoul be grown in zones 9-11 accordingly to the papers that came with them.

Now, are these temperatures really necessary or can I just plant them and they will grow? I've seen many of you have carnivourous plants and I thnk some wil be able to give me advice on the other plants too.
Oh, and what is "germination mixture"?

i dont know edelweiss, but judging by the lacking info on the flytraps
id put more faith in the internet info, as that might actualy come from experiance. GC labels, instructions etc are notorious
for being inaccurate or even completely the wrong label at times.
keep an eye on any difference between the writers zone and yours though.
dont know about the palm either, and ill need more info on the sundew.
there are meny kinds of sundews and they come from all over the world
so require differnt things.
can u name or describe your sundew?

theres only one kind of flytrap and they do need some special attention.

the venus flytraps need as much light as u can give them,
but they dont like full sun all day.
well they like as much sun as they can get but should not reach temperatures much higher then 40C/100F for too long.

they are native to north and south carolina.
they must be potted in a peat/sand 3/1 mix and NEVER be fertilised,
the sand must be clean and not have anything in it that can
effect PH, flytraps, and most carnivores like neutral to acidic soil.
nutrients are usualy deadly, they dont need any anyways.
they need to be kept wet, out the pot in a wide tray with a half inch to an inch of water.
the tray should be wide to provide some humidity, as these swamp plants like that alot. ofcourse they are not mushrooms so no need to go rig up a coolmist, the tray will do.
tap water can be too high on minirals and chemicals and is normaly not suitable for the plants. use rainwater, distilled water or reverse osmosis water. if ure in a bind, a pond will provide sufficient water, provided its a healthy pond.

they will have a dormant period during winter and need to be
in a cool/cold spot for that time, about 1C/34F to 10C/50F
when it stops growing and u need to keep it only moist, not wet untill it starts to grow again in spring. it may die off partialy or all the way but most of the actual life of the plant is in the bulb underground.

if all goes well ure flytraps will turn a nice red and produce upright, thin leafs during summer/fall and wide low growing leafs in spring.

if it makes a flower stalk, cut it off early, when its about an inch.
making flowers takes alot of energy from the plants and the flowers are quite unimpressive, so unless u want seeds, cut it off.

incase i missed anything, heres a link: http://www.sarracenia.com/faq.html
but keep in mind that this guys is a bit overly dramatic about it all,
the plants are alot tougher then he makes them out to be...

also here is my carnivorous plants topic:

it has links and pics etc...
