  1. To anyone who bought some of my temperate pinguicula gemmae. The ones sold as p.apuana may be p.grandiflora. Please let me know anyone who does get p.apauna from them, i would like some back. I have lost my parent plant,cooked by the heat! and the ones left in the pot are p.grandiflora and p.vulgaris! I think the mice that ate my sarracenia seed have been moving and eating these too, my white flowered p.balcania has been nibbled and died. So please accept my apologies for this mix up. ada

  7. All mine survived in an unheated greenhouse,again for the 27th year! It never gets cold in London,does it. I have a few for sale that are tough as old boots take a look in the sales area

    Sad ceph's

    blocky, its happened to mine too,but they are in large 8-9 inch pots. Last year the european hummers was hammered,i left it until september and was going to use the pot to pot on a smaller ceph.when i pulled out the old compost i found 7 small growth points just below the surface,so i just put it back,its fine now just smaller. years ago my smaller cephs in little pots all died when they were frozen for a while. A couple of days you might get away with if you're lucky. ada

    Seller, rhizome divisions and no roots...

    do i see 2 tiny roots just forming? i wouldn't be happy with that but i'm not surprised either. It gives me an idea how much i can charge for a leuco var alba #1 from steffan Lenssen. It will grow,but the first two seasons the pitchers will be like grass i reckon ada

    Venus fly traps frozen solid

    heated? that's a luxury most of us don't have,mine are frozen solid,i cant even lift the pots out of the trays. Yours will be fine,some of mine might die but i doubt it

    Hardy sp in unheated greeenhouse

    50/50 peat and perlite is fine for most species but some do like lime in the mix. I don't think p.primuliflora would survive your winter without any heating. P.grandiflora will grow well,and there are 4 flower coloured forms
