    Big purps question

    Hi, this is my iP20 sarracenia purpurea spp venosa burkii from Nr Sumatra Liberty co Florida. I've had if for years now and it just keeps getting bigger! Think the green colouration for your plant is lack of light . It's in a south facing cold greenhouse and has been down to -13 oC and it coped fine! Picture shows plant on a 2ft x2ft slab!!!! Is growing in a 12 inch pot with peat moss, pearlite and Melcourt fine pine bark! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Pigmy drosera Tray

    Well another month on and things are growing. I will start to top dress now with granite dust to limit the moss build up! The D. scorpoidies Albany at the back are looking really good, can't wait till they full grown and starting to flower! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Pigmy drosera Tray

    Well, I was bored of growing pigmy drosera in square pots so with my surplus Gemmae, I've planted a 53cm x 42 cm Stuart tray with them! Species include:- D. Scorpoidies Albany D. Dichrocephala D. Pulchella D. Paleacea D. Pygmeae NZ D. Roseana D. Australis D. Allantostigma D. Paleacea Giant Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk A very big thanks to Mark Anderson for donating some of his spare Gemmae as well ! Very much appreciated! It's under the propagator lid with some LED lights on to get them stated . I'll keep you posted every month! There in a mix of peat moss , pearlite, quartz gravel and granite dust! They will be top dressed with granite dust/ chipping's when they get going!

    Peat free mix? Where to get?

    A big thanks for everyone's help and advice! I just wanted to try a different mix to improve vigorous growth! Despite a cold winter temperatures have already been down to -8oC I've had summer temps in the greenhouse up to 46oC and they really love it! It must be the south facing aspect that gives them loads of light !

    Peat free mix? Where to get?

    There Adult plants mostly in 1 ltr or 5ltr pots! So just worked out I need about 400ltrs of mixed potting medium! The majority of my plants are from , MK, insectfang, Hampshire carnivorous plants but some seed grown from CPUK seed bank! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. How's about meeting up sometime to discuss things? Would be great to meet like minded individuals? Oliver's nepenthes look amazing! I've always tried to grow them but with no joy! What are your main interests? Could you pm me? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Dear Mark, Im just outside Cupar in Fife and would be more than happy to host a sarracenia meeting / plant viewing /talk at mine if you want? I do a talk already for the local horticultural society, The sarracenia at mine are best arround July/ Aug time as they start to die down Aug /Sept time. I could do an open morning if that would be ok? If your happy to organise things and give me a fews dates? They have also spread to my other greenhouse to !!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Dear mark, think this would be a great idea!!! I'm in Fife and a keen collector of sarracenia, 14ft greenhouse of them! I would be keen to open my greenhouse for members to visit and sell/ exchange plants? What were you thinking? Regards John Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
