    Thank you Dennis and Ron for the detailed account of events. Interesting to read, but a bit sad that its come to this position. I do hope it gets sorted swiftly and, like ada, hope the society come out stronger from this. Probably some important actions to address as soon as this is over.

    Hi at all, every year this plant amazes me more and more, in this session the pitchers are becoming white, the green veins are disappearing and some picthers have a pink brushed on the edge of the hat: Ch Natale

    That.'s a very dark plant Mike. Let me correct you though,the plant you mention from insectanfang was actually bred by me. It is one of 4 plants I grew out from a batch of seed I pollinated,I sent AIDAN a piece to see how dark it would go,my conditions are not perfect for colouring up but this plant showed potential! I will try a piece outside this summer,if we get one nice enough.we get a lot of cloud most summers and our temperatures are,nt great either that,s why we grow undercover to try and get the best from our plants in a very short growing season. AIDAN lives in the USA now,I. M sure he,d let you use the picture if you ask him. ADA

    Dear all, here is the list of lectures on EEE 2019 in Prague. The lecture day will be Saturday and the first lecture will start at ten o'clock, so you won't have to wake up that early to catch them ;-) 10:00 - 11:00 - Tomáš Hájek - The fate of peatbogs during the dry years and their future in the changing climate 11:00 - 13:30 - lunch break 13:30 - 14:45 - Oliver Gluch - Winter flowering Pinguicula species - impressions from natural habitats in Mexico 14:45 - 16:00 - Jan Schlauer - The Quinones of the Queensland Sundews 16:00 - 17:15 - Lubomír Adamec - Ecophysiological characterization of aquatic carnivorous plants: are they different from terrestrial ones? The Sunday is dedicated to a trip to BG Liberec, which is a birthplace of CP fascination in former Czechoslovak Republic. Its director wrote the first book about CPs in 1984 and the popularity among growers lasts till the present day. Hope to see you in Prague! Adam

    When you have a pot with plantas that look unhealty, the best thing to do is repotting it to a new soil, in this case the soil i had this Cephalotus was very deteriorated and compact. So i transplated them to a new and bigger pot and more aerated that the previous one to avoid root roting. First i put some volcanic rocks in the bottom In second, i filled the pot with this mixture: peat moss: perlite: silica sand (1:2:2) Photo of one of the clumps, look at the rizomes and roots! From this division i took 10 individual plants! To finish, i put a layer of silica sand to avoid some algae and mosses I let the pot in a spot with indirect sunlight and with a zip lock bag to up the relative humidity to 100% and with this reducing the post-transplant stress. If all goes ok and with this rain week and decreasing temperatures we here in Portugal are experiencing, after one week i will take the bag off and put the pot in is definitive spot. After 2 months i will update their growth.

    If I may, I think you should read some information about basics care for Nepenthes. Plants of this genus are tropical, and do not go dormant in winter in-situ. Good luck!

    I don't you'll ever know for sure beyond the fact that it's a hybrid. It looks like there may be some leucophylla and psittacina in the mix, but there may be more to it than that. Medusa sounds like a perfectly good name for it as long as the name hasn't already been taken!

    I just wait until the flower is brown/ black (you will realize when they are ready because they drop easily) You don't need to do cross pollination, and to colect them I usually take flower by flower and smash it on a paper.

    The same i did too a short time ago. In all cases i gave away my motherplants of Things like Queen Mary, TAB, Kingsley and so on for free to Friends. They just look typical and without shape nobody could say the Special characteristics.

    Yes me too. Its something Special. I like more the ones with an interesting pitcherform or size than the colourful ones.

    Hi, "Error" was grown from 'Eden Black' selfed seed by Kai Becker in 2011. It is an odd, slow growing plant without pitchers, so some don't think it would be a good cultivar. This is the inofficial description: https://translate.google.de/translate?hl=&sl=de&tl=en&u=forum.carnivoren.org%2Fforums%2Ftopic%2F43234-cephalotus-follicularis-error%2F There are probably more plants with inofficial names or codes than registered cultivars in cultivation. Ideally, a special plant that is grown by many growers and that clearly differs from other plants should be described as a cultivar. But it takes some effort to do this. Practically, many excellent plants have not (yet) been officially described and (yet) some average plants have been registered.

    I would try to fill that gap if you can. Can you not pour the old compost you have around the edge of the pot to fill the gap or push some peat into the gap? If it is too damp or wet to do this, mix some dry silicate sand with it to make it lighter and "pourable". I don't see any reason why you cannot use your old compost for this so long as it doesn't look mouldy or smell bad. Since you won't have had any fertiliser in it, the compost cannot go off as maybe regular potting compost may do. But do try to fill that gap with something even if it is just plain dry peat and/or sand which will soon moisten up once in place. Rob

    I'm not sure what the issue is Rhys, maybe it's worth asking admin ? I grew some some vft's from seed early 2017, there was far less monitoring though on my part !. For the most part they're still doing ok but are still very small and beginning to get overgrown by moss. They seem to grow for me 'naturally' at about the same rate as cephalotus from seed . It's painfully slow for the first couple of years. . I know people have managed to double the growth rate by skipping dormancy in the first couple of years and growing under artificial lights etc. https://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.php?/topic/58837-a-winter-window-ledge-trial/&tab=comments#comment-391182

    Bonjour a good solution the bacillus thurigiensius for the larvae but not for the adult , uses for them yellow gooey plates , I think it is necessary to eradicate the 2 otherwise the problem will come back jeff

    they are fine,they can stand a surprising amount of frost without any ill effects. They are also very slow growing from seed,so there is nothing wrong with them size wise. They are in sphagnum which has nothing at all nutrient wise to make them grow better,repot them into peat/perlite and you will see a real growth spurt in the spring and one last thing most sarracenia seedlings look the same in the first year anyway no matter what species they are. ada

    Hi all, I installed the last sections of staging (all home made) in the greenhouse over the weekend and all is looking much tidier now! Very pleased with the look...

    I used to have one, the flowers are fairly ordinary but they're mainly grown for their leaves. They like it quite wet. Mine met an untimely end when feral pigs got into my garden, they were one of the many casualties.

    I had one bad experience with them. Last year I bought some Drosera ascendens seeds. I sowed them in a terrarium and after some time what did I see? A bunch of Drosera capensis. So I wrote to them. They responded, that the capensis must've gotten there accidentally from somewhere else and that they surely send me the correct seeds, but they just didn't germinate...Yeah right. What are the odds, of rouge capensis seeds getting into the terrarium, from a plant that's standing a few meters away and didn't flower for some time? Not to mention, that it germinated in the EXACT same spot, that I've sown the supposed D. ascendens. Not to mention, that it couldn't be ascendens, as this plant is not yet in widespread cultivation, as i learned after some time. I'm 100% sure, that it's Drosera latifolia and I wrote to them about that, asking them to correct the name. I gave them a link to the article supporting that and ask to show me photos of the flower stalk. I only got an arrogant response saying "I'm selling what I say i do". They didn't even acknowledge a logical reasoning.
