  1. What is this white stuff on my Nepenthes leaves?

    Some of my spectabilis and spectabilis hybrids do this. It's the only species to do this and I don't have much idea why it happens but it doesn't seem to do them any harm. I think it happens to me when I let them dry out a bit sometimes, so maybe this is the problem? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Attention

    I don't know if this is my place to say but this seller appears to buy plants from European sellers and then sells them on giving them misleading titles. For example most of his neps (I think) come from wistuba. He then labels them as 'seed grown' when they simply are not. I would also be interested to see his permits for sending plants worldwide (which I assume is where he sends most of his plants to) as 'no problems with customs guaranteed' most certainly does not sound official or promising. I think that there is a high chance that this seller is fraudulent. I hope nobody gets conned by them and can see that all they have to do is go to the original place of purchase to get these plants.

  4. What and where? Competition!

    Well done stu, some of you were very close, but it was indeed on a plane. It was on the return flight from a recent holiday. I thought it was an interesting coincidence although I think I was the only one on the plane watching at 3am. :) Stu I will send you a PM. Thanks Oliver Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  7. New Nepenthes cultivation advice

    Mine grow in highland no problem, they are not fussy hybrids, very few of them are, I have managed to acclimatise all to my greenhouse when I receive them from BE. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Aerangis punctata

    Very very well grown!! I am very jealous, it's a species I have thought about growing for a while, but neps usually get prioritised and I forget about my orchids, maybe one day! What temps do you grow it in? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Scottish branch of the CPS open day 5/11/16

    Looking forward to seeing you all there! Last time was brilliant. Don't hesitate to come, you will enjoy it. We all have knowledge in different areas of cps, and last time I learnt so much about others genera and much more, and come away with some new stuff to try.

  10. Welshy's Nepenthes

    Great job on the talangensis, I have had many plants of talangensis and after a long time, I think I have worked it out too. They need lots and lots and even more light and extremely high humidity. This has finally worked for me. I think it also depends on the plant you get, they are very hard to kill but if the temperature changes by a lot, they wont pitcher. Also good to see the singalana x spectabilis, they are brilliant plants when you get them going but can be fussy. keep up the good work Oliver
  11. Hello Everyone!

    Welcome on board, Great to see an increasing popularity for these wonderful plants in Scotland! Oliver
  12. Summer pitchers

    Absolutely fantastic, you must be the first person to get an intermediate pitopangii pitcher, really well done! What form is it? It's such a wonderfull species. Oliver
  13. Hi there I got given one of these for a gift and I use them for helis, they work very well, however might be a bit overkill for a small terrarium, it's very good though. Anything from simply control is great. Well worth a check for anyone looking for greenhouse terrarium equipment. http://www.simplycontrol.co.uk/shop/plant_and_indoor_lighting/5_34_0_280/led_grow_light.aspx Hope this helps Oliver
  14. Brexit or stay in, consequences for our plants

    For me, it would have horrible effects. If trading of plants got harder within the EU I would lose 2/3 of my business, and would also effect every other business selling orchids and carnivorous plants. For me operating at 2/3 would mean I would have to seriously cut down my business. In my opinion I would rather have my plants than have not having the EU dictating us. I just think it's my hobby and I care so much about it and don't want it to be impossible to get a hold of something. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
