  1. Hi all, Just adding some photos and updating everyone on how the displays doing, Pitchers have come up well, and most of the plants are now in full growth. However, I am having some issues with green fly on my Drosera and Dionaea. I'll hopefully get this sorted before September. I have also nearly completed my outdoor Carnivorous plant display (I know I'm spoilt) just need to finish getting materials then plants can start going in. Any comments are appreciated, but remember this display is still young and hopefully will continue to get better, any questions feel free to ask
  2. Thanks Gaz Ill be sure to check the links out and I defo take some photo's.
  3. Ive ordered some VFT's and Drosera peltata var peltata seeds from best carnivorous but have never sown CP seeds before, normally buying a plant or propagating via cuttings/pullings. So has anyone got some advice on light levels, substrate, heat that would get these plants of to the best possible start. In addition to this because these plants are going onto a public display would it be best to just sow them insitu or not. Many thanks.
  4. Hello all, I am interested on going on an expedition to Borneo or the Philippines or even Mount Roraima to view carnivorous plants in there natural habitat. As I am a student of Horticulture I'm going to try for a bursary to help fund this. however Im after some advice from CPUK I live in the UK and at the minute cant find much useful info on the internet save for this company http://www.redfernnaturalhistory.com/expeditions/ I would like to know if Anyone has any other potential sources of a bursary other than the RHS that i can look into. Have any of you been in
  5. we've got it down as Pinguicula "Weser" The original got pinched however all the ones there are leaf pulling i took previously the largest about the size of a 2p coin
  6. Hello, To everyone on CPUK, I have been a member for several months reading discussions and salivating over other peoples CP's. I decided it was time to reveal myself from the shadows and come into the open about my own display. I am fortunate enough to have the Birmingham Botanical Gardens (UK) as an office, and even more fortunate to have the carnivorous section as my own personal playground. It has been so much fun, an I was given nearly complete artistic license with this display with the exception of a few tips and pointers from my glasshouse manager (many thanks to him for being so
