Mike King's open day, 27th of June 2015

05 Mar 2015

Posted by Mike King in Open Days & Events
Hi everyone,
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.

Nursery visit to Carniflora 2015

04 Mar 2015

Posted by Marcel van den Broek in Open Days & Events

Hi everyone,


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

Rietwijkeroordweg 35 Aalsmeer NL

G.F.P. Carnivorous Plant Calendar 2015

20 Jul 2014

Posted by Smir8810 in Carnivorous Plant Societies

Dear CP lovers,


since 2007 the German Carnivorous Plant Society (G. F. P. - Gesellschaft für Fleischfressende Pflanzen im deutschsprachigen Raum e. V.) yearly publishes a calendar of photos of carnviorous plants taken by society members and also other skilled photographers printed in very high quality. Some of you surely know about this and have also purchased one or the other of these calendars.

I´m happy tp present you the calendar for the year 2015:


Please visit this page to see previews of the calender 2015 




It´s 30 x 45 cm in size, printed on 250 g glossy photo paper, 13 sheets (title plus 12 months), process-colour printing, double loop wire binding with hanger, black back cardboard 380 g, transperancy film covering title


Run: 300 copies


Price: 12,50 EUR (equals £9,90).

Available at: Kalenderversand [dot] GFP [at] gmail [dot] com (delete the brackets and spaces in front of and behind the "@" in your address line, please) :-) I have not activated Spam filters to make sure everyone who seriously wants to get a copy of the calendar will reach me via his email address. But I want to annoy Spam robots, I hope you understand.


Shipment costs:


1 copy can be sent as extra large letter for 8,00Eur (£6,34) everywhere in Europe (also Switzerland and other non EU countries).


2 copies are best shipped as two extra large letters each for 7,00 EUR everywhere in Europe. 3 - 6 calendars need to be shipped as a parcel for 17,00 EUR postage inside European Union.

Outside Europe it´s of course even more expensive! There are various zones for the rest of the world for the German Post with graduated shipment costs. For example one parcel (3-6 calendars) to the United States will cost 36,00 EUR.

After mail order (email) you´ll receive a reply your order has entried. I have not installed an auto reply so it may take a couple of hours `til I reply. If you shouldn´t receive a reply from me within 48 hours please contact me here via pm. In that case I haven´t received your email order for what reason ever.


By your order please give me the name (at least surname) of the addressee (most likely yourself) and his (your) full address including the country you live in. And please mention the number of copies you wish to have.

Payment is possible via international bank transfer or by PayPal (additional fees are due - normally 1,9% to 3,5% of the total amount you transfer + 0,35 EUR). It´s necessary to pay in advance.


I hope I have announced all relevant details on this calendar and how to get it. If not please ask me I´m a very patient man! ;-)


The calendar is bilingual (German/English). You´ll see the abbreviations of the weekdays (Monday to Sunday) (upper line German, lower line English), the calender weeks below and the number of the days in the last line.


All important German bank holidays are also mentioned.

On the back side of the title you´ll find an imprint also in German and English which gives you an overview of the photos and the photographers and also details about the shown plant(s) and the location where these pictures were taken.


*Uff* A lot of stuff to tell you.


I hope you´ll enjoy the calendar.


Kindest regards from the calendar team.

drosera specialist required

09 Jan 2015

Posted by paul y in Open Days & Events

hi everyone I hope we are all well?

I am arranging a carnivorous plant expo at bristols festival of nature this year 13th 14th june.

I already have 2 big suppliers confirmed for the event but as I want all forms of carnivorous plants represented I am in need of a drosera specialist.

1 you need to be free for the whole event which typically starts early and finishes very late (its a big open air festival spread across Bristol city centre and docks 10 plus acres that usually has in excess of 15k people attend)

2 you need to be able to bring a very wide selection of stock and enough of it to cope with a potential huge number of customers (this year will be the first year carnies are represented and the organisers plus local media are already very interested)

3 I have already asked nigel and he cant make it due to other commitments


if you feel this may be of interest then please pm me asap,
