    I'm rather fond of Dracaena myself. Some of the pictures of old dragon's blood trees are simply stunning.

    Great plants, I am really jealouse!! The colours are dream-like!
    My plants are not that colorful, because I don't have that much sun. They are more green, but that's ok. The plants are healthy, one bloomed (I bought them this year, and hope they bloom more next years, my cacti bloom very well on my balcony).

    How do you overwinter your plants? With water or more on the dryer side? I had once a carnivorous buck, left water in it but it crashed in the cold. Even it was a more soft buck. The plants all died :(. There were swamp orchids in there, Sarracenia, a bilberry bush and more other plants I loved.
    Now I am unsure what to do. They are only in single pots in a bigger pot for a easier watering.
    Thanks in advance :).

    I usually take my individually potted plants and place them in a big empty pond container and cover the pond with a tarp on days when there is freezing conditions. It usually helps me and I live in NY. HOPE THIS HELPS!! And good luck

    Will flies exposed to pesticides hurt it?

    Not usually, plants and animals are usually sufficiently different that pesticides don't really double as herbicides (I believe the other direction isn't always true--I'm pretty sure that glyphosate, for example, is toxic to animals as well as plants).

    Is deadly for fish. Warning on label to not spray within 50 feet of lakes, streams or other waterways.

    What species of nepenthes is that on the first page? I've never seen one that can stand temperate climates.

    schmiggle Arachnoangel Active Member

    You haven't seen one because there isn't one, but the species on the first page is Nepenthes hamata. Nepenthes lamii can take sub-freezing temps, but it also has to be kept very cool during the day, and it can't take anything really cold, to my knowledge.
