  1. Tried this and aquarium sand for my pygmy drosera, and the plants in the pool filter sand are doing great so far, I've also planted some sarracenia in this sand to see how they do this summer. Might be difficult to see, but the pot on the right has the pool filter sand. In that pot the plants are way healthier, lots of new growth etc. and in the other pot (with gemmae that were planted 3 weeks earlier) the plants haven't even made a carnivorous leaf yet. The pot on the right also has less algae. (Sorry for the bad picture, quickly took it with my phone) I never tested the sand (simply forgot) and so far it seems to be fine.
  2. Finally got my money back, it took a while but at least the problem is solved now
  3. Just made a facebook account and sent him a message, hopefully the problem will be solved soon. I guess getting facebook was inevitable............
  4. Which email did he mention? Because he didn't answer any emails on info@planthobby.nl
  5. Hello, More than 2 months ago (almost 3) I ordered and paid for some plants on this webshop, but I haven't heard since. I sent an email, called him on several occasions and sent him a pm via the dutch forum, but he never responded or picked up. Does anyone else have any problems with this webshop or know of ways to contact him other than the ways listed on his website? Thanks,

  8. Over here the plant only produced seeds in the flowers from spring, the flowers from autumn just died a week after they finished blooming.
  9. I wouldn't worry about it as one of my flava's did it last year and flowered again this spring. The same plant had some nice pitchers and for some reason is flowering again at the moment. On another plant which made flower buds I cut them off but it didn't make a difference either way in my case, the only difference being that one of the plants bloomed in autumn in between all of the dying pitchers of the plant
  10. Once again thank for all of the advice. Thanks to all of the comments I have decided which greenhouse to buy. It's a Janssens Helios Victorian 236 x 310cm, a dutch brand. I chose this one as it has high eaves, should be very sturdy, has a good amount of vents, is the maximum size I can accomodate and it looked nicer than most of the greenhouses I saw for a similar price. Once I have it in a couple of weeks and put it together with some help of others I'll post some pictures of it with my plants. Regards, Rory
  11. Thanks for all of the advice everyone! I really appreciate it! I'm not sure what brand I want but with all of the information as what is useful I can start looking around which ones are suitable. Are there any brands that any of you would recommend? I had a look at a few Robinsons as some people recommended these but they were quite expensive and I would prefer something slightly cheaper. Of course the brands might be slightly different here in the Netherlands compared to the UK.
  12. Hello everyone, As I'm planning on buying a greenhouse I'd just like to make sure the location is good and if there are any things I should consider when buying a greenhouse. First of all the location, on the location where I'd put the greenhouse it would in the summer get light as soon as the sun comes up until about 4 pm, after 4 pm the greenhouse would be in dappled shade for 1 to 2 hours before it doesn't get any sunlight at all. I presume this would be enough light for Sarracenia, vft, and a couple of drosera? Secondly the greenhouse itself, what requirements are there? By this I mean if there should be a minimum amount of vents in the greenhouse or anything like that. Any advice would be appreciated Thanks, Rory
  13. The flower stalk on the Dionaea is fine as mentioned above. The x hookeriana doesn't look great and if I were you I'd keep it out of the sun, keep the soil moist and put a plastic bag or something like that over the plant to keep the humidity high. If the plant would recover I'd slowly acclimate it to the conditions you would usually grow it in and after that the plant should make decent leaves and pithers again as mine has leaves about as strong as my ventrata which I grow on my windowsill. I'm no expert but I had a similar problem with an other plant and this seemed to work, so it might be worth a try if nobody has any other ideas and the plant isn't getting any better.
  14. Haha, you're probably right Ian! As a matter of fact I have 4 sarracenia arriving in the mail tomorrow! Thanks for the welcome guys!
