    Soil

    It wasn't Westland peat by any chance?
  5. Please describe your setup please.... all equipment! The Heli's in your tank is impressive!!!!
  6. I've just received some moss via the well-known internet selling site that was advertised as Sphagnum, intended for my Neps. I opened the package and found it was certainly not Sphagnum but looked like what is known as Springy Turf-moss - Rhytidiadelphus squarrosus! It commonly grows on poorly-drained lawns, etc. have seen on this thread that types of moss other than Sphagnum are usually OK to use, so does anyone think that this will or will not be suitable? I ought to return it anyway as it's simply not what I ordered.

    Soil

    It is Irish peat. I have used it for all my carnivorous plants and they are doing well. Their soil has not developed green slime and no brown sticky surface.

    Soil

    Hi. Anyone who understands about soil? I have three plants outside (2 are almost dead). They all have the same soil and I water them from the bottom in a saucer. The soil of the first has developed a browny powdery layer, the second has a green sticky stuff and the third is becoming green. Any idea what is happening? Thank you.
  13. Looking for lights designed for potheads is the best way for success. The customers have high demand in light quality and are very aware of costs. Most of our cps are sun lovers. Very few of them would dislike strong light. The problem with strong light could be temperature as some strong lights get really hot. At least the model Mars hydro i use (sp250) is performing very well in both light and heat.
  14. So at 10pm last night, I went out to the greenhouse and with a small torch in my mouth, I inspected my plants and checked under the pots. There were two small slugs and both on my Sarracenia cv Juthatip Soper, I got one and launched it but the other one slipped into the pitcher! Found some copper tape on the shelf in the greenhouse and wrapped it around the tray holding the plants, hopefully that sorts it!?
  15. I want buy same. But bigger ts1000. I want find good quite light. I dont think is it too strong.
  16. Copper is good at stopping slugs. At least the ones I have in my garden dont ever cross copper. So I have put old copper pipes around my crop garden. I dont have a bog, but i imagine it makes no difference.
  17. Sorry, I don't have a bog garden so I will let somebody answer that who has one ! Rob
  18. Wow! Hopefully not like that. Okay I will check them over and make sure there aren't any inside. But how do you stop this if they are planted in a bog garden?
  19. Do you mean a bit like this A Rather Large Slug Sure they will damage your plants if given a chance. Try to keep them out of your greenhouse. I am no expert on slug deterrents but you can try something like slug pellets, coffee grounds, a prickly barrier, a beer trap or recycled wool waste pellets. Kind regards, Rob
  20. I have a very large truncata (about1meter), and i grow it as a House plant. The size of the plant make it very difficult for me to make Room to it. I really want it to make a basal. so is it possible to force the plant to make a basal plant ? And how ?
  21. I have just popped out to the greenhouse and there are slug trails on my sarracenia and it looks like they go down into the pitchers! Will they harm them and if so what can I do to stop it?
  22. Earlier
  23. Not necessary, but it won't do any harm so long as you do NOT let the plants themselves dry out. You will find the tray and maybe the water goes green after a while with algae growing on it. Rinse out and clean the tray when this happens unless you don't mind it looking all green! In any event, the water will probably all evaporate fairly quickly in warm weather. Do make sure you only use rainwater in the tray though. Kind regards, Rob

    Hello from me

    what a dilemma! his 'n' hers greenhouses perhaps
  25. I wish! My wife has made it very clear that I am not allowed to take over the greenhouse. I will get away with a couple of plants in there, but that is it!

    Hello from me

    Welcome to the forum. You've got some nice plants there, they should grow well for you and once you've planted them out you'll have plenty of room for more in the greenhouse
