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 7,00 (£5,55) EUR 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.

ICPS Conference 2014

21 Jul 2014

Posted by snapperhead51 in Carnivorous Plant Societies

Just Got back from the ICPS conference in Cairns Queensland AU. could not to the after conference field trips as wife had to be back at work tomorrow.
It was A very well organized venue, with a lot of very very knowledgeable speakers ,give a enormous amount of information and points of view even LED lighting against other sources , just confirming my thoughts on the matter as well . speakers like Chien Lee , Jeremiah Harris , Rob Cantley , Alistair Robinson ,Charles Clark, Andreas Fleischmann, Allen Lowrie"s Talk and book launch and many more ,was also great to meet up with old friends and meet many new ones, and put a face to a email or Forum or FB groups , it was a lot of information jammed into 3 full days ,enjoyed it thoroughly ,the morning breakfast, venue breaks and end of day chats were really great as well, met some wonderful people like  Marcel and  many others
Thanks to Greg Bourke his wife and Richard Nunn for putting the event on with great success and all the out of sight helps as well .


Just to Add to  this  thread


Rob Cantley  has launched   the  IUCN  Species  Survival  Commission ,and  launched  it at  the conference, he is looking for   Carnivorous Plant  specialist  Group  people , who are  willing to do  study's , research , information gathering  on species  through out  the world ,and get it all together for a more comprehensive  world wide  body to help  in  survival of  the  CP's  in now day  times . if you want to  take part  sigh up  at  www.iucn-cpsg.org   or  contact  chair@iucn-cpsg.org ,this involves  Charles Clark ,Chien  Lee and  many other organizing it . 




Most of us at  the conference joined up and  have taken up  to do particular specie  research , or  active admin  or just help  , but much more help  is needed  so join up and  get involved if you can in your  area of habitat or one your  passionate about .


Richard Nunn and I are doing  Cephalotus  , we start  next year  to find  the actual distribution area & numbers  of  the cephalotus specie  in native habitat  , a huge  and quite expensive  task

Its a good  cause  and I feel very worth while , and a huge  task to do .

Bristol open day 26th July 2014

01 Apr 2014

Posted by Tricky Utrici in Open Days & Events
Guys & Gals, this year's open day will be on Saturday 26th July, from 12 noon, with lunch being served about 1pm.

This year I should have some sought after Sarracenia available at my usual sensible prices. I have added a sizeable collection of Dionaea since last year, there will be a few available or you can give me a wish list if you can wait until the autumn.

You are very welcome to bring plants to sell/swap, you can bring the wife too but no swapping them please.

If you need directions post a reply to this topic and I will send directions about a month before the event.

I look forward to seeing old friends and new on the day.

shout out for les burdett

14 Jul 2014

Posted by paul y in Open Days & Events

hi all hope we are all well, I travelled up to pj plants with les Saturday and stopped off at ians, on the road les told me that he is moving to edit not Essex but somewhere end edit next year and this open day will be his last in the west country,  so in the fashion of going out with a bang les has asked me to go on here and DEMAND your presence at his open day!

seriously though if you are in the western side of the uk and can make it then please do so and bring as much to sell swap or give away as possible.

les may well not have an open day for a season or two as he will need to construct the worlds biggest polytunnel, and if you have ever met les you will know he is genuinely the nicest bloke you could meet and deserves a big turn out.

I can accommodate a few people in terms of pick ups from train station and lift to and from les house you just need to get to Bristol temple meads in plenty of time.

I can set up a 2 man bivvy in the garden if you need to crash overnight.

so in short, time to lie to the boss at work (distant relatives die all the time!)  make some excuses to the wife (my mates a florist I can arrange cheap "im sorry" bunches of flowers)  or bring the wife I will be selling flowering plants so there will be something pretty to soften the blow.

nigels nursery is just round the corner from les, I will speak to nigel about a detour there in the evening?  he may well be too busy but if he can accommodate people and you haven't been then its an eye opening sight,

regards paul
