    Hello everyone ! Small update, I bought a LED kit to put inside the "greenhouse in the greenhouse". The first goal is being to be able to cultivate 2 or 3 lowland species. No heating inside yet , and anyway the temperature at the moment does not allow me to buy lowland plants by having them delivered with that kind of weather. So, space is used by my seedlings and cuttings ...;) A little heating will soon take place and I will wait until spring to be able to try the culture of a N. mirabilis var echinostoma and N. bicalcarata ...;) Meanwhile, 2 pictures of some nice current nepenthes... and N. 'Predator'

    Folks can we please keep this thread as civil as possible? There's a perfectly good reason Sheila didn't want to name and shame the individual and that's because she doesn't want to leave herself open to being sued by that person. Please don't try forcing the information out of those who are in the know. Please just have a bit of trust in Sheila's warning. She's given the individual's sob story very clearly, that should be sufficient.

    I am doing research concerning only in plant ecology, their relationship with the environment. For now other studies I have only in plans, but in my University there are several Departments which are conducting research of carnivorous plants. Such research leads onto plants growing in-vitro (such cultivation of plants is not for me). D. regia Drosera capensis

    To all Carnivorous plant people. Please beware of someone who is asking for plants because of a fire in which the persons greenhouse supposedly caught fire. This is a scam that this person has been using for the last couple of years, with the sob story of 'I loved my plants, I don't know what to do'. Most collectors will know who this person is. I know of emails that have been sent to friends this week, I have a copy of one of the emails. The fire supposedly started in the garage and spread to the greenhouse! Never before have we heard such rubbish, especially when this person was caught out about two years ago, posting photos of another well known growers plants, claiming they were the plants that were burned. Please don't get caught out by this scammer, It is obtaining goods by deception in my opinion. There has been no fire that the person can show any evidence of, the person is just out to get a good collection for free by getting people to take pity. Be warned, don't be taken in you are being conned. Sheila

    I really do understand Dimitar's feelings about this but as others have said the culprit in this case can be looked up easily enough. Marcel has made it clear why someone might not want to 'name and shame'. The format of the scam is fairly clear and due warning has been given. I don't think there is much more to be said on this so I'm locking the thread and we can move onto more productive things!

    I think it is very important that everyone understand that ANYTHING you say in public is different when you take on a society job or similar. That is because it has actually happened that people got sued and as a board member, trustee or whatever judges look at you differently. overnight you are not allowed to express an opinion you could give just a day before you accepted because judges consider you to have influence on people and thus your opnion carries weight that could damage the "interests" of people disproportional. For instance: anyone can say internet company X sucks, but the risk of you getting sued is much smaller if Sheila, Dennis or say myself say so because we are considered to have influence... so in general we are very carefull, we want proof we can take to court and win before actually making detailled statements (one reason why so many scum is still around, not enough hard evidence to risk having to go to court) and at the very least we state that something is a personal opinion and not a society statement. Some countries are worse than others but we need to be carefull, this is for instance a reason why the ICPS doesn't have a bad sellers list or even an approved sellers list (because we could be forced to motivate why we don't add a certain party).

    Hello Before our Akopan Tepui expedition, we took a chance to visit the Drosera amazonica habitats northwest of Manaus, Brazil. It was probably the first visit to the site since the discovery of this species. We were lucky to make a little discovery there, finding Utricularia tenuissima growing next to the other two species reported by Fernando Rivadavia (D. amazonica + U. subulata). Another species to add to the overall habitat report Many thanks to Fernando for providing us with the GPS data of the habitats! https://flic.kr/s/aHskTw135o P1090444.jpg by Mateusz, on Flickr Cheers, Mateusz

    Part of the reason i dont like this approach is its accusation by rumour. If you know someone is scamming, name and shame and give them a chance to respond. Its all very well that a quick search might find a culprit, but the approach is just wrong. I allready know who your accusing because i remember the post from a while back.

    Hey all, I have noticed posts mentioning the Sarracenia Northwest podcast, but I can't seem to find it using their name or Carnivorous Plants as keywords. So maybe they stopped producing it. That led me to thinking more seriously about starting a Carnivorous Plant related podcast of my own. I already have a podcast I am doing for Photography and I am interested in branching out into a second or third podcast. (I just really enjoy hearing myself talk. :P) I am curious, would any of you actually listen to it? I ask - not because I am promoting the idea to hope to GET you guys to listen but actually - to see if the ACTUAL fellow nerdy lovers of CPs would have any interest in one. Because if the nerds like me are honestly NOT interested, then expecting the masses to actually listen is definitely out of the question. If you would actually listen to a CP related Podcast, what would you want to hear on it? I am adding a poll to see what people's responses are. Thanks all! -Aaron

    Tropicat, I feed them very rarely , because generally I do not have much time, I try to feed all at least once every 2-3 months, a smaller Nepenthes I am feeding more often. Thanks Scuipici, my part of the greenhouse is not large, there are two boxes with dimensions 3x7.5 m each, the whole greenhouse is composed of eight of such boxes.

    There are some products for adult ones, but I've never used it... The adultes ones die if the water touch them... so you could one day spray the plants with water and, after some days, to use "Bayern Borneo" to kill all eggs and larvae;-)

    @Mark Anderson, it's actually reptile bark but have been using it for ages on Cephalotus. It's only a too dressing on this one but I have others growing in a mixture of it and peat.
