Cephalotus Leaf Cuttings?
David Ahrens - Today, 08:06 AM
I just pulled four leaves off of my Ceph last Summer and poked them into pots. They have stayed g...
With just over 3 months to go, I would like to invite you to my open day.
This year, I have conducted a massive 300 plant peat-free trial after the success of some plants trialed last year. Further more, I have further refined the collection and separated the lower growing hybrids away from the taller ones. The date is a few weeks later so you can the plants in peak colour.
As normal, there will be plants for sales, refreshments and you are welcome to bring plants for sale and swap.If some of you are arriving on the Friday like some are, we can go and visit some other collections, like Chester zoo which has a national collection of Nepenthes just over 1 hour from here.
Please let me know if you intend to come and we can gauge how much refreshments to get in.

Here are a couple of pics:
The CPS stand and RHS Silver Medal. A real credit to the members who lent plants and also constructed the stand.
The foot-traffic in the marquee depends on the time of day and the weather but on Thursday it was quite busy for much of the time.
I had a great day talking to members of the public from all over the world. Almost all of them were amazed at the diversity and were interested in their carnivorous habits and ecology.
The nurseries also had a good showing both with gold medals.

Carnivora will have its biannual (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 will be present with a commercial sales stand.
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 23rd 2015
Time: 10:00 - 13:00 local

I was speaking to a friend the other day and we are both very surprised how little interest there has been in the ICPS conference. People are always complaining that nothing goes on especially up north and when a mega event like this happens very few people are interested..
Or is it because so much flaming goes on that people are reluctant to post any more.
