    There's nothing difficult about growing carnivorous plants. All you have to do is grow the plants...

Open day Saturday 17th of October

28 Aug 2015

Posted by Mike King in Open Days & Events

Hi everyone,

        Only around 7 weeks to go to this one. Officially it starts at 12, but some do come earlier so if you want to arrive early, please expect to be called on to help erect the marquee! Food and drinks will be provided and I can divide rarities on the day.


All the leucos are pushing up their autumn pitchers right now as are alata, minor, leucophylla hybrids etc so it should be a good display again for the open day.


The potential house move has been postponed until next year so the open day will be at our house as normal.


Please let me know if you are coming to guesstimate the refreshments needed.

ICPS Conference 2016, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew: 5-7 August

27 Jul 2015

Posted by Tim Bailey in Carnivorous Plant Societies

Dear all. An update on the ICPS 2016 Conference.


Please note: you do not need to be a member of The CPS or of any other cp society to attend the Conference.


Best wishes




ICPS Conference 2016: Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew London

Please note: the ICPS dates originally proposed have now changed.


The Conference will now take place 5th to 7th August (Fri-Sun).

A field trip to Down House, the home of Charles Darwin, is planned for Mon 8th August. There are no restrictions on numbers planned for this trip.

The CPS expects to run a field trip between 10th and 12th of August. Tuesday 9th would be a travel day to the location. The field trip would take place in the New Forest area (Hampshire) and Dorset. The carnivorous plants, which would be seen growing in the wild are:

Drosera rotundifolia
Drosera intermedia

Drosera anglica

Drosera x eloisiana (previously named D. x belezeana)

Drosera x obovata

Utricularia minor
Utricularia australis
Utricularia stygia
Utricularia intermedia
Utricularia bremii

Pinguicula lusitanica

Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea
Sarracenia purpurea ssp. f. heterophylla

The trip will encompass some of the most beautiful countryside within Hampshire and Dorset, with the best cp sites selected from several years of study. Within the time available, we can look to run an excursion to Stonehenge if wanted and/or to a commercial nursery. There will be a restriction on the number of participants given the ecological sensitivity of many of the sites, but we will aim to be as flexible as we can on numbers. For instance, running two groups in reverse.

The scientific lecture programme will span the 3 days of the Conference based around the general theme: The World of Carnivorous Plants. Details will follow, but our expectation is to provide a programme with a similar number of lectures and structure to the recent 2014 Cairns ICPS Conference.

There will also be opportunities for Conference delegates to see cp material kept behind the scenes, such as Kew’s herbarium.

It is likely Kew will run an additional public/scientific engagement carnivorous plant event a few days prior to and during the time of the Conference, e.g. from the Weds. Should this come to fruition then it would a substantial additional benefit to Conference visitors. With a very busy lecture programme, visiting a day or two earlier would give more opportunity to explore all the Kew has to offer and the other cp offerings under discussion.

As is normal we have carnivorous plant displays and a seller’s area planned, within which our expectation is to assemble the greatest number of genera, species, forms and varieties ever presented. Assuming Kew’s extended cp activities happen, we would look to make the sellers and display available for those days too. This may even give us an opportunity to add in some bonus lectures.

For those who like to plan well in advance we are sorry we can’t 100% guarantee Kew’s extra activities, but will endeavor to let you know ASAP.

The customary evening meal is planned for the evening of the 6th August (Sat) at a venue (Italian - up to 120 places) within a very short walk of Kew.

We are in detailed discussions with Kew on many specifics, which we will circulate ASAP as they are confirmed.

It is too early for us to announce specific costs, such as the Conference fee, though we are working hard to keep any necessary charges to the bare minimum.

Summary: Key ICPS 2016 Conference dates

Location: Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Duration: 5-7th August 2016

Evening meal: 6th August 2016

Down House Field Trip: 8th August 2016

CP Field Trip: 10-12th August 2016

G.F.P. Carnivorous Plant Calendar 2016

27 Jun 2015

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 2016:


Please visit this page to see previews of the calender 2016 




It´s 44 x 32 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: 15,00 EUR (equals £10,64).

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 8,00 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! ;-)


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.
