Carnivorous plants

My carnivorous plants

  How do I grow them:

    Carnivorous plants are placed on east window-sill of prefab. At the balcony I have (while it is freezing) Sarracenia, Darlingtonia, Dionaea, Drosera aliciae, Drosera binata, Drosera capensis, Drosera filiformis, Drosera filiformis × intermedia, Drosera indica a Pinguicula lusitanica.

    Temperature in prefab in summer achieve 28°C and in winter descend to 19°C.

    Relative air humidity in prefab is around 60%. In a small aquarium I grow Cephalotus follicularis, Drosera adelae, Drosera prolifera, Drosera paradoxa, Drosera rubrifolia, Heliamphora heterodoxa, Heliamphora minor, Utricularia pubescens and Utricularia tricolor. I cover some plants, which don't look fresh or small plants (seedings, proliferated plants from leaf or root cuttings), or plants after replanting with a cut plastic bottle.

    I water them with tap water. In summer all plants stay in water. In winter I water them less.

    I store the seeds in the fridge to preserve them. 

    I remove old pitchers and leaves constantly.
