  1. Yesterday
  2. Thank you! I think you're right- I have edited it now. Thanks! It is a really stunning plant.
  3. Looking good. I think it's Ctenium Fields (I've got one from there as well)
  4. I have a lot of sundews and some nepenthes, here they grow so good :)
  5. Last week
  6. This year I’ve seen a similar thing with some temperate pinguiculas from gemmae... they are 1/5 than the ones that I grown from gemmae last year
  7. Welcome to the forum Frederico !
  8. Hello Colin Even doctors can't cure it ! Welcome to the forum.
  9. Hi Colin and welcome I hope you have some spare space, you will soon fill it. Cheers Steve
  10. Hi Frederico and welcome!! Cheers Steve
  11. I'm visiting Porto, Portugal soon and I wondered if anyone might know of a site nearby (driving distance) with Drosophyllum lusitanicum? It'd be really great to see it in the wild. Preferably somewhere that's accessible and isn't going to get me in trouble with a landowner.
  12. I have some really nice new plants and did a rearrangement in the greenhouse to maximise space and tidy it up Sarracenia Leucophylla Ctenium Fields, Perdido, Alabama This is a Purpurea from Lidl, a surprisingly nice plant I was so happy to see this shoot earlier today, since I stuck what was effectively a piece of leaf with no root and very little rhizome into the ground on this Schnell's Ghost :) Can't kill what's already dead I suppose?
  13. Hi Colin welcome to the forum! :) I do like purpureas, that was the first carnivorous plant I ever owned. Best of luck with your collection!
  14. Hi Fede!!! Nice to see you here!! Che piacere vederti!! Benvenuto!!
  15. Goodmorning everyone. I'm Federico, I've been writing from Italy and growing carnivorous plants for 5 years. I'm a member of the Italian Carnivorous Plants Association (AIPC) Sorry if my English is a little basic, I hope you understand me anyway See you soon!
  16. Hi all, Thanks for letting me join the forum! Looking forward to learning more on here and translating that to my plant care! Currently I'm keeping a sarracenia purpurea, a couple of drosera, and a bladderwort! Best wishes Colin
  17. Dear All, We are glad to to inform you that the PDF-English version of AIPC Magazine n.1 (2018) completely dedicated to a field trip in Abruzzo is finally ready. Abruzzo is a marvellous region from a naturalistic point of view, but also rich in culture and traditions and, above all, in Pinguicula (three species, P. vulgaris and the endemic P. fiorii and P. vallis-regiae, two subspecies, P. vulgaris subsp. ernicaand P. vulgaris subsp. vestina; we present also P. vulgaris subsp. anzalonei wich occurs just across the border of the region). Unfortunately, this is also a wounded land, struck in recent years by devastating earthquakes that have caused many victims. AIPC has dedicated an entire magazine to this beautiful region and started a fundraising through the sale of this journal in Italy and abroad. This was certainly a spontaneous, symbolic almost dutiful act, immediately shared by the Board and all the members of AIPC. We have decided to donate the funds collected to the population of Campotosto, a village in Abruzzo that has the sad record of having been near the epicentres of the worst earthquakes that have recently struck central Italy. Obviously at the end of the fundraising we will inform you of the amount obtained thanks to your help. You have 3 options: - you can donate 20 € or more and you will receive the hard copy of the journal in Italian and the PDF-English version (shipping costs included) - you can donate 5 € or more to recieve just the PDF-English version - if you're not interested neither in the journal nor in the PDF-English version you can donate the amount you prefer (also less than 20 €). Here the link to the page of our website where you can find more info on the way of donation: LINK Many thanks for your help! Maurizio Saroldi, AIPC Editor Here some pictures from the PDF

  19. @Richard Bunn No problem. Darwin it is. I'll make a start. No idea how long it will take. Having 10 month old is taking up a bit of my time :) Shall I send it to you once it's finished Richard?
  20. @Platty I really like the sound of the Darwin article. Can I persuade you to write it for the Newsletter? It'd go down a treat.
  21. Hi the CPS has two publications: Planta Carnivora which tends to include all the science based articles but also reports on visits to cp sites in the UK and overseas, descriptions of new cultivars and other items of general cp interest. The main point is that they must be high quality and possibly peer reviewed articles. The editor is Dr Martin Cheek of RBG Kew. The other publication is the Newsletter which is aimed at providing information to members on what is happening in the Society, shows, meetings, CP weekends, open days and other events, successes and failures, growing conditions, media and equipment etc. The editor is Richard Bunn. The editors will welcome articles and you can contact both via the Contacts page on the website (www.thecps.org.uk) to obtain advice and guidance. Dennis
  22. Hi all, The CPS are keen to have people from the society write an article for the magazine. I'd like to give it a go, but I'm interested in want sort of articles people might like? For example: An account of getting in to growing CPs A scientific article, such as enzyme production in Drosera, production of anthocyanins in Sarracenia etc How did Darwin prove that plants were carnivorous? Proparation of certain CPs Trials and tribulations. Or another aspect of growing CPs Anyway your thoughts and ideas are welcome. Platty
