  1. Welllll I already have spare compost and pots so it would be silly not to really! Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  2. Haha. I do want more... I want them allll. Originally only got three to help with greenfly in the greenhouse. Now they are taking over ;-)
  3. Hello. I've had three carnivorous plants for a few years. I rescued 4 sarracenia which were removed from a uk nature reserve due to being invasive last year. This March I treated myself to 3 new ones for my birthday. Anddd my first sarracenia finally flowered after 3 years. Truly hooked and trying to resist buying more! Here's a few pictures ....
  4. Ahhhhh yes it does look like one of those. Do I need to get rid of it? Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  5. Hello. This tiny yellow flowers has popped up in my new Drosera filiformis. Any ideas what it is? Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah. I'm guessing it's low odds on getting something unique but that makes it fun. I am trying to be really careful and only get plants I really want and are temperate so don't need much fussing. I already have a garden full of way too many plants and need room for my tomatoes in the greenhouse! Originally bought the carnivorous plants to help with greenfly etc. Which they are brilliant at! Good luck with downsizing. ;-) Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  7. OK will keep an eye on the seedlings to see what they become. You've got me intrigued I think I'll try crossing the vfts and see what happens. I love surprises. I will leave the green vft for now but might divide next year. I am loving my new hobby and already bought a couple of new drosera last month. I've found them very easy to grow so far, I just give them rain water in their tray and they do the rest! I can see it becoming very addictive. Good luck with your 300 seedlings!

  8. Thanks that's really helpful. I had wondered about using the stalk, but hadn't thought about cross pollinating them. Sounds fun! I've taken a picture of them for you. The all green form has two flower stalks this year, I'm wondering if I should have divided it? Also the third pic has some tiny drosera seedlings which I've just found within some pitcher pots. The only drosera I have is a capensis which they don't look like. These pitchers were removed from a nature reserve in Dorset due to being invasive and I gave them a home. I guess there are native seeds within the soil. I definitely have one round leaved sundew (red one in bottom left of photo) but wondering what the others might be. There is a tiny vft seedling also in the photo. :-) Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah the vft has flowered a few times. I think I stopped it last year and the plant looks a lot healthier for it. But my drosera has flowered every year and seems fine. I have a new red vft with a little flower stalk growing should I cut this off to it a chance to bulk up? Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks Blocky. I keep looking at it everyday :-) Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  11. My pitcher has grown finally it's first flower! I am so excited and it's soooo tall. Been waiting for 3 years since I got my tiny plant. Anything I need to do to care for it? Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
  12. That's a good idea. I shall have a look at bonsai scissors. I only have huge kitchen scissors, or dead heading snips, neither of which are good. I shall hunt the tweezers upstairs now. And thank you for the pitcher ID, that does look spot on. :)
  13. Thank you
  14. Ahhhhh that's good to know thank you. I shall give it a snip this afternoon.
  15. Hi and thank you. I'm downloading the app now. Silly question but what should I cut them with. I did try but was worried I was disturbing it too much. (I got covered in dew)
