  1. The only common cp ive found struggles in high temperatures is D. aliceae.
  2. I lost some UK droseras, anglica, rotundifolia, beleziana and intermedia as they were exposed to the wind. Some of the same species survived that were frozen solid. Also some dionaes, binatas and capensis survived outside. We got to about -5 for a few days.

    Adiantum peruvianum problems

    Possibly, it could be something out of the peruvianaum/trapeziforme complex or just a different clone of peruvianum, or just old last years leaves...

    Adiantum peruvianum problems

    Heres my biggest peruvianum plant, im just getting around to adding some crushed limestone especially to the macrophyllum which has never been as good a grower as the peruvianum.

    Adiantum peruvianum problems

    Are you sure its not Adiantum raddianum? I've never seen peruvianum in a UK garden center.

    How old is too old?

    Whether they are lowland/intermediate highland, does not imply a genetic relationship, its purely to do with growing conditions.

    If they germinate then they should be ok, regardless of how old they are.

    Well if your sure they are then they could be, some types lack he wings that most have. I’ve had hem germnate after a about 1 year after sowing, thats kept wet and in typical highland conditions.

    Any hope of saving this Nepenthes Alata

    Looks like cold damage, possibly made worse by being wet but mostly cold damage. I’d give it about a 5% chance of recovery.

    Vitax Irish peat

    They can’t ban the sale of peat while we are in the EU or in a transition period where we obey EU rules.

    Why do pinguicula leaves curl at the edges?

    That seems unlikely, anything but the lightest rain would wash any ping leaf clean, ragardless of the raised edges. I think more likely it stops the digestive juices overflowing the leaf and wasting the nutrients (in dry weather).
