  1. Hi, many of my Sarracenia already produced some nice pitchers. Here is one of my (at the moment) favorite S. flava var. rugelli. The plant in the picture is F18 from Mike King. Some of my wintergrowing Drosera are still active, amongst them some forms of D. trinveria. Here is a picture of the flowers of a form from Bain's Kloof. Also, the first Utricularia are starting to flower. The following picture shows the yellow flowered form of Utricularia livida from Zambia I am only growing this plant for some months, so i was especially happ

This section is intended to provide a home for the increasing interest and threads in relation to sustainable and peat-free cultivation of carnivorous plants, to enable members to feed in and get out the information they need and to share their experiences in one place. Objectives · Enable carnivorous plant growers who want to use no or less peat, to do so without detriment to the plants they grow. · Contribute to sustainable growing media stewardship and the protection of peat bogs. Primary ambitions: · Better information on sustainable and peat-free growing materials · Qualify

  4. For some time now I have been struggling for room in my greenhouses so I took stock of the space I could make available and decided to purchase a small 6ft x 4ft ( 1.8m x 1.2m) polycarbonate greenhouse. This is intended to house my Darlingtonia and the odd Bryophyte and /or Orchid. One tree had to be felled and my reacquaintance with laying paving slabs and brickwork was required. The result is quite good, the structure being reassuringly solid. Ventilation is via the standard roof vent plus I replaced the bottom polycarbonate sheet in the door with wire mesh ( half the door). For a small gree

  6. Hi all. I'm from Warsaw, Poland and I've recently joined this forum. I'm cultivating CPs for around 5 years, but only for 3 with success ;) as first 2 years were only shameful losses. My favorite plants are VFs, Sarracenias, Nepenthes and Heliamphoras and I'm focusing on cultivating those. I've started from simple plants like VFs and Sarracenias, but I'm trying to develop my hobby and recently adapted an old fish tank into a terra for plants, to check how it's going to look like and how plants will grow. As everything goes very well, soon, as a next step, I'm planning to build a more professio

  7. Hi Shoggoths Well in my Ping wall usually have two sections the lower where the water tend to flow is more wet like the upper seccion where is more dry (this is the same as Fernando's Ping wall), for the plants who need more dry side I put this in the upper secction like P.rotundiflora, P.esseriana, P.agnata, but in the lower section I put more wet plants like P.primuliflora, P.emarginata and some utric sandersonii, when you need to give a rest period to your Pings only you need to water less the entire wall, but at least for know the wall became very dry very quickly about eve

  10. Hi everyone, the spring has come into the greenhouse and its also the time for some other plants to show their best... here they are. Hope you will like them :-) Adam First, the greenhouse. Roridula gorgonias flowering nicely: Drosophyllum is also going to flower soon: Drosera ramentacea grows really good: And my ceph is getting some really nice colours: My new basement terrarium, much larger than any previous version: Heliamphora huberi flowers: D. spec. Cerro Duida (cf yutajensis), one of my favourites: Utriculari

  12. Well it survived the whole winter outside with the elements, It looks healthy and has new growth points spurting up out of the moss but it was one of the mildest winter's I have experienced since growing CP's so maybe not much of a test this time I will leave it out again all year and see how it does.

  15. Hello Mobile, Yes indeed Coir does contain humic acids in the form of Tannins. Tannins gives the very brown tinge in the water when passed through Coir medium, the first time. I personally flush a pot of coir with boiling water 10 times and the water is clear when I do this. I'd love a more numerical experimental approach to Coir by testing the soil properties instead of trialing by carnivorous plants because this will eliminate "lurker" variables in your experiment that also effect the growth of the plant (which you are using to evaluate results) e.g such as: sun amount, pot type, climat

  16. Hi guys. None of us like potting those little scrappy VFT's after dividing all those lovely juicy splits. Here's what to do if you have slave labour to hand. No prior training. Two demonstrations. One instructed attempt and then told him to get on with it. Later his 5 yr old sister got wind someone was having fun and joined in and between them they potted just over 100 G6 VFT.
