Sarracenia seedlings

Neem is not a miticide but is a reproductive disrupter, so often a couple of treatments will get rid of them. Also the Eucalyptus oil in the recipe is a mite repellant.

Found the recipe! Will have to give it a try. I'm also getting some (systemic?) pesticides from Willy as well so I feel well armed against these guys.

They are growing a lot. Soon they will be too big for my small grow tent! I had to rise the lamp by 2 inches, so can't rise it any more. The last pitchers is 12 inches tall. I had no idea they could grow so fast, as these are 8 and half months old. I have a large grow tent ready for them, lol!

@daniella3d you are the sarr queen haha my babies are still tiny tiny little things despite growing for about a year. I have them ~4" under two T5HO's and they're still tiny. I really need to feed them more...

It also help a lot to have them growing in a grow tent, because all the light gets on the plant, since it is trapped inside. It's also hot and humid in there, plus the Maxsea every week, and they have all the good conditions to grow fast.

Maxsea (or a similar fertilizer) is the key to getting Sarracenia seedlings growing quickly.

@daniella3d what concentration and frequency are you using?

I am using it at 1/4 the recommended dose and about once a week. I know that's a lot, but they really like it. When I skip a week, I can see them slowing down or the pitchers not growing as tall. I use foliar spray and for the larger one, I also feed them in the pitchers. It's a combinaison of light 24/7, warm (82 to 84F) and constant humidity (75%) so they absorb well the high level of CO2 that is in my house. There is always around 1000ppm of CO2 in my house, winter and summer. In winter we don't open up much because of the cold, and in summer it's the opposite, the AC is ON most of the time.

Will they have those color under the sun? This is with artificial lighting but I was wondering what they might look under the sun? More colorful? same? less colorful?

A 17 inches baby! My red throated seedling as just popped a 17 inches pitcher. This is going to be a very tall plant when mature I am guessing because it is my tallest seedling out of the whole batch and the seedling is 11 months old.
