  9. teasel's carnivorous?

    http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0017935 Whether or not that makes it carnivorous depends on how wide you cast your definition of carnivory. Yes, it benefits but no enzyms or ass. predators like Roridula, no specific attraction mechanism and are the modifications to catch really mentionable?
  10. EEE 2017

    Sorry we are a bit slow. We just don't want to post anything we have no absolute confirmation on. Please keep checking this page too..It is the main page and will also give instructions on registration etc when we are ready. http://carnivora.nl/2017 - EEE Eng.html
  11. S. 'Marston Dwarf' question

    Carnivorous Plant Cultivar Names Database N: $[Sarracenia ' Marston Dwarf ' {Hort.Slack}] P: Insect-Eat.Pl. & How to Grow Them:72 (1986) S: =[Sarracenia flava var. ornata {Hort.Bull ex Mast.}] Introducer: A.Slack Nominant: A.Slack Registrant: A.Slack HC: registration preliminary (standard missing) Description: Insect-Eat.Pl. & How to Grow Them:72 (1986) "The variety (sic!) [Sarracenia ' Marston Dwarf ' {Hort.Slack}] is of my own selection and has heavily veined pitchers seldom exceeding 31 cm (12 inches) in height. It soon forms clumps, and is a useful and attractive plant for small sunny windows." Propagation: vegetative division Etymology: after the introducer's establishment Marston Exotics, Somerset, England, and the small size of the plants and a picture link with the registration: http://cpphotofinder.com/sarracenia-marston-dwarf-3020.html

  13. ICPS Conference 2018 Call for proposals

    Proposals are in...news will follow soon but I can tell you we didn't receive a proposal from Canada.
  14. Araflora... precision and shipment timetable?

    Gert always has good plants and in all the years he is in business I have never encountered anyone with a valid claim that he didn't deal with in a very civil and adequate way when approached.
  15. Carniflora visit 2017

    Carniflora visit Carnivora will have its biennial (more or less) excursion to Carniflora in Aalsmeer again this year. A good change to look around in what is probably the largest carnivorous plant nursery in Europe and perhaps pick up a couple of plants. Ararflora is also invited by the owner so Gert will be present with his sales stand. Usually he brings some special plants As usual we invite the members of our sister societies and forums to join us. Please note that Carniflora is a whole sale nursery and NOT open to the public. This is a special event for us and we like to keep that privilege so don't attempt to visit at any other time or date!! Date: May 20th 2017 Time: 10:00 - 13:00 local ATTENTION! TIME HAS CHANGED SINCE PRE-ANNAUNCEMENT!!! Rietwijkeroordweg 35 Aalsmeer NL House rules: When you arrive you will be given some information. As you can buy a couple of plants for yourself this mainly involves which lots of plants are reserved and some general information. Apart from the remarks mentioned before you are free to have a good look at this huge nursery. Lots of people will come, so you might want to trade some plants. That is fine, but do NOT take them inside as we try to keep deceases out of the greenhouses. There is enough parking space and you can exchange plants from your car trunk. Members of Carnivora are around to help with questions.
