  6. I am building a solar greenhouse, mainly for sundews, 6x3m, 1m underground, front will be doubleglass, top 16mm lexan. Front is 17deg to maximize light and heat from sun in winter and reduce in summer. The construction will be from Larch, treated by Osmo oils. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  7. Winter is coming....

    Bring them in now and put them in a bright window, they will be fine. Its far too cold outside for them.
  8. Goniophlebium subauriculatum

    We tried this sub-tropical outside this year and it did ok, time to dry off soon. Another one that did ok outside,
  9. My Sarracenia has grown massive this year!

    If you keep it in its existing block of peat you can just transfer it across to a bigger pot and fill in the gaps
  10. VFT/LFSM Top Dressing & Winter Watering

    Hi, I have a small selection of VFTs that I keep indoors on a south-facing windowsill. All are grown in a 100% dried/chopped LFSM substrate with a really nice top dressing of healthy live sphagnum. I have to mist the live moss once, sometimes twice per day to stop it from drying. Baby FTS Lunatic Fringe w/ LFSM Top Dressing. This winter will be my VFTs first dormancy. I’m concerned that they may receive too much water than is recommended due to the misting schedule, it does tend to keep the entire pot quite moist, not just the surface layer. I was kinda hoping the anti-fungal properties of the live LFSM would negate any issues that may arise from an overly moist medium, but I’m quite new to growing CPs and don’t want to murder my (quite expensive) babies. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Filiformis not doing well....

    Like it down your way. Not so scenic down here in brighton. With your filiformis, I would keep it just damp now, no standing water. When the temperature start to drop further pop it back in the greenhouse for protection. Mine have to live outside, my filiformis survived last winter out there no probs.

    It is very scenic here. Thanks for all your help. I shall pop it in a empty tray now. Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk

  14. My Sarracenia has grown massive this year!

    Here is my opinion... (After growing some Sarracenias for 30 odd years, although by no means an expert) Gently repot it now into the right mix. As the mix will not have nutrients in it, it will not stimulate growth at the wrong end of the year. It is unlikely to have a large root sytem, but will look better in a larger pot and be more stable. (~8

    Hi Mark. Yes I'm in the UK in sunny Dorset, although it's not been a very sunny Sept! Ok maybe it has just gone to sleep then. My other Drosera are still growing away in the greenhouse so I was worried. Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  16. Winter is coming....

    Hi all! I have 2nepenthes plants: Nepenthes 'Rebecca Soper' and either Nepenthes 'Bloody Mary or Nepenthes ampullaria x (spectabilis x ventricosa), not sure anymore :S I bought them in autumn and had the outdoors, where they did OK, not excellent not bad either. Rebecca Soper put out a few pitchers the other one made just one (and pretty small one that is). So now the temperatures are droping and I find contrasting information on how to take care of my neps. Right now the weather is OK (arround 16°C during the day and below 10 during the night). I have an idea that I should put them inside my room now, before it gets too cold. In my room it is arround 21-24°C and humidity is aprox 30-60%. There is not much sun in the room, so just normal daylight which will get shorter from now on. Is this ok to put them in for the winter time and back out in autumn? Thanks for any help and suggestions, here are also some pics if you guys can identify these plants.
  17. Filiformis not doing well....

    Hi, are you in the UK? All of my temperate sundews have pretty much formed a hibernacula. Apart from the beleziana at the mo. They live permanently in the elements outside. Had quite a few chilly days here this September so they went to bed early.

    Hello. My filiformis wasn't doing well in the heat of my greenhouse so after advice from here I popped it outside and it soon recovered and was doing great. Unfortunately I haven't checked on it much recently and the weather has changed to crazy rain and wind and cooler temps. It's now looking really sorry for itself. It's got no dew or any healthy new shoots. Do you think it's gone dormant? Or just sulking? I've moved it back to the greenhouse so it's out of the wind and a bit warmer. I've attached a before and after picture. Most exciting though my new Drosera is just about to flower... Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  19. Hello. Just after a bit of advice, I've had this plant for 4 ish years and it flowered for the first time this year. It has put out loads of huge pitchers since then and I'm wondering if I need to repot it? I've put a picture of it with it's flower bud at the start of the summer and another of what it looks like today. Thanks for looking. Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  20. hello guys, I found this LED on eBay, can be ok for my tank in your opinion? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1W-3W-10W-LED-Grow-Light-Aquarium-Bridgelux-High-Power-chips-PCB-full-spectrum-/131345637382?var=&hash=item64459ba62a
  21. U, longifolia

    Mine is in a bathroom windowsill with bright, diffuse light. Been there about a year and is growing like a weed but no flowers so far. It is in peat which i basically flood when watering. I think mine needs moving up to a larger pot though as it has filled this one and is spreading over the sides.

    Working for me too now, happy it has been fixed. Thanks Richard!
  23. I have yet to see plants which can be grown solely under LEDs or T5 :). HPS are still a solid value when it comes to growing indoor plants for instance. I used to grow my Heliamphora under the same kind of spotlight as Harro. If you plan to learn and make your own setup, maybe that thread of Naoki could be helpful :

    Email issue fixed. Turns out it wasn't my fault after all. Phew! Richard
