  1. Past hour
  2. Always good to see pics in the wild - thanks for sharing.
  3. Today
  4. It looks great and is well deserved. Considering the Society isn't a commercial grower and all the plants are on loan from members then we did exceptionally well. Well done to all involved and thanks to everyone who manned the stand over the duration of the show.
  5. Hi all Here's the BBC2 video feature with Matt Soper from Hampshire Carnivorous Plants at the Chelsea Flower Show this year. I think we can all agree it was excellent.
  6. Beautiful! How do you keep the utricularia from overgrowing everything?
  7. Just a few picture of the bog local to me, it's been a while since posting pics so we shall see how it goes! Nice hummock of vaccinium Vaccinium flowers Sphagnum capillifolium ssp rubellum Dorsera rotundifolia Drosera anglica Hope you all enjoy the pics and I will be posting some of various sites in the weeks to come! Cheers Dan

  14. Awesome! Do you have more detail photos?
  15. nooooo! Hang in there! The new growth does look good still. Did you put it in a different location?
  16. it looks really unhappy new division looks like it's died, can still see a bit of green coming from original plant. I'm hoping it pulls through Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Great display guys - well done!
  18. wonderful looking display
  19. Guy. Sounds like a plan make sure silicone is applied well and allowed to go off properly (donot be in a rush to fill). As Steve said Perlite is fine and would be my choice. Beware of dust from perlite though dampen it first o reduce dust getting on lungs
  20. Hi we were very pleased to get a silver gilt medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year. Here is our display. Both Nigel Hewitt-Cooper and Matthew Soper received golds! cheers Dennis
  21. 35/40°C seems quite excessive to me. I hope your plants are coping well with this heat. Well, I'm no coder, so I can't really advise on a legitimate basis. But I can let you know how I did my own thing. It was easy to do with existing tools in Python. See here. import email import smtplib msg = email.message_from_string('warning') msg['From'] = "example1@hotmail.fr" msg['To'] = "example2@hotmail.fr" msg['Subject'] = "helOoooOo" s = smtplib.SMTP("smtp.live.com",587) s.ehlo() # Hostname to send for this command defaults to the fully qualified domain name of the local host. s.starttls() #Puts connection to SMTP server in TLS mode s.ehlo() s.login('example1@hotmail.fr', 'pass') s.sendmail("example1@hotmail.fr", "example2@hotmail.fr", msg.as_string()) s.quit() I created an email account just for the RPi, which sends two emails per day + any set up alerts (temperatures, lights, open door, etc.). You just need to replace the 'example1@hotmail.fr' (sender's address), 'example2@hotmail.fr' (recipient's address), 'pass', and 'smtp.live.com' with the adequate email addresses, the password of the sender's address and the smtp mail server of the sender's address (easy to find on Google). As for the erroneous sensor readings, you might consider saving the data only if it is a plausible one. For instance, an expected terrarium temperature could be comprised between 5°C and 50°C, so any data out of the range should be read again. Then, you could also take 10 readings, and make an average out of them to smooth the curve.
  22. RIP
  23. Love the flowers, and the Darlis!! Good growing!!
  24. Very informative video. I didn't know there were even more undescribed species in the section. I'm really looking forward to what's next.
  25. I love before and after pics, makes you realise how well you've cared for them and that your efforts have paid off
