  1. Was doing my fertilizing today so I decided to take some pics as well, N. robcantleyi N. truncata "red flush highland" N. veitchii x burbidgeae I'm really into N. peltata right now but mine is in an awkward place to take pictures so these are the best I can do. My pelota is doing crazy leaf jumps right now so I'm pretty excited about it. Anyone know how big they have to get before N. peltata starts becoming more squat and tubby?

  2. I'm getting excited because it's the time of year when CPUK members start uploading their Nepenthes photos, and there's been some great thread updates already ! So i thought i'd nip out with my camera and see if there were any decent shots of my plants to be had....... and there turned out to be a few more than i expected. So here are some of my first pitchers of 2016.... And last but by no means least, we have sibuyanensis x burkei. I'm really proud of this little fella as it is the result of my first ever nepenthes seed

  4. This is one of my first hybrids that I made. I am quite proud of it actually. It already colored up very dark. The shade pictures don't do the color justice. The pictures in the sun however do. My other dark colored sarracenia are still not at their full level of redness. Since it is a hybrid between alata Red Lid Perry Co, MS, Phil Wilson A18 and flava var. atropurpurea Blackwater State Forest. Am I correct to label it an x alava then or what is the correct name for a hybrid like this?

  12. If you're growing sarracenia, dionaea or most drosera and you don't let the pots dry out, then no.

  13. Sorry for the late reply. The miracle gro is for acid loving plants. Mexican pings for example are not acid loving and it kills them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. If we leave, we are on our own. Cites, trade restrictions, import/export duties to/from Europe. The only way around that is a trade deal with the EU, whereby we have to sign up to pretty much whatever they want. So we throw away what influence we have, gain nothing in return and have to go back cap in hand and get a worse deal. Thats the reality, we would be a relatively small inconsequential country dealing with the likes of USA / China / SE asia and the EU and hoping they are going to be nice to us... Sure if you want to be a minnow in sea of sharks, lets leave, we'll see what

  16. I've been wondering this for some time; surprsied it hasn't been covered already here! And it's why I've been getting some plants from the EU quickly in case there ends up being a brexit. I'm firmly on the stay side. If not for our trade, but for our environment. Despite its flaws, the EU habitats directive is a powerful force for protecting our sensitive habitats. In the recent new manifesto produced by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs of Northern Ireland, despressingly, not one mention is made about our landscape, habitats, and protected species, but is full of h

  17. Who would have thought it was something so common! I was expecting some exotic kind of plant. Might pull it out and plant it in its own pot. I like heather! Thanks

  19. You may recall back in August (post #85) i told you about my spathulata x dubia which never put out any lower pitchers for me (despite me acquring the plant as a small 8cm rosetted example), until it inflated an intermediate pitcher after 2 years in my care when the plant had vined to about 2ft high. A few weeks ago i noticed the plant had popped a basal, so i may get to see what the lower pitchers look like after all ! And now yesterday, i spotted inflorescence beginning to form on the main vine. This is my very first nepenthes flower, and to say i'm a bit excited is an unde
