  1. Hello. I'm Darren. New CPS member. I've been active in other specialist plant societies for decades. Started out with alpines in the early 90s and then incorporated bulbs, cacti etc. My oldest CPs are a bowl of Pinguicula grandiflora that I have had since my alpines days. More recently I was promised some sarracenia divisions as part of a plant swap, so started reading up on CPs and got hooked. Last year I grew a few pygmy Drosera from gemmae. I am still waiting for the sarracenia but meanwhile have bought a few more Drosera and some terrestrial Utricularia. I still work full time as an analytical chemist but am expecting to start a phased retirement next year by going part-time and will have more time with my plants. I also have a side-gig as a botanical artist, but it costs more than it earns so has been relegated to hobby status.

  2. Looking back, the utric was probably doing bad because the water level was too low. I still have loads of moss growing with my utrics but now growing nearly submerged, they don't seem to mind.

  3. I apologise for reviving an old thread, but I thought my experiences fit in quite well with the Topic. In my indoor terrarium I have several Species intermingling with mosses. I use a 1:1 mix of Sphagnum and Perlite as a substrate which I keep flooded to the substrate surface. The mosses are thinned out regularly at present; however the most dense growth of my Utricularia's occurs when the mosses are undisturbed. Indeed the only dense areas of U.deliculata "Whangamarino Swamp" in this set up are found growing below dense Sphagnum growth! I theorise that the Utric's like the extra humidity, but that is just a guess. The only troublesome weed is what I think is a kind of Liverwort similar to Riccia fluitans (the floating Aquarium plant) in form. This forms very dense patches of growth indeed and grows quickly enough to smother less vigorous Utric's. I thin it out wherever possible with fine forceps or eyebrow tweezers. Cheers from Bill.

  4. The main plant has 10+ heads now and is catching many flies. It has finally stopped flowering but an odd flower or two will still pop up at times. There was some space in the pot so I transferred a few seedlings here. Also 2 more seedlings apparently fallen from the mother plant popped up on their own. Seedlings in pure mineral media. Seedlings in different types of media. The ones in pure mineral dry out too fast (even in winter) so from now on I will be adding just a bit of peat so as not to waste so much water.

  12. Some of my Heliamphoras and Nepenthes are growing only in living sphagnum Heliamphora minor Heliamphora heterodoxa But sphagnum are large and fast-growing relative to other mosses, therefore in my displays I use other much smaller bryophytes: Hypnum cupressiforme, Brachythecium rutabulum, Leucobryum glaucum and others. They only grow on a substrate which is a mix of peat and perlite (in this mix grow heliamphoras) This picture shows how fast growing sphagnum relative to other mosses Sphagnum in Leucobryum glaucum Utricularia quelchii (Auyan Tepui)

  13. Have no idea just how I managed to miss this post until now. Incredible displays and really happy looking plants.

  14. thanks guys Well You understood, the greenhouse is open to the public at open days, usually when they are educational events, at other times you need to make an appointment. Tepui are made of cement and painted My English is too weak to describe it exactly, but the pictures it shows Chimanta Massif

  16. That good to hear, I received a jamesoniana a month ago and potted it into some chunky sphagnum, every other media I tried was death for jamesoniana in my conditions. It was divided potted up into five separate mixes and the only one that lived and know is filling it's small pot up is the one in pure slow growing live sphag. I used a half height pot filled with live sphag and then cut some holes in the bottom and threaded some live moss thru the holes and then rested that pot in a normal height pot with the lsm wick touching the bottom of the normal height pot, then I put it in my water tray for terrestrial utrics. It's doing good now, so it was lucky I tried a couple of mixes. Mark
