  1. plants started waking up 2 weeks ago but they are not pushing the stalks or leaves at high speeds, it's more like slow growth until march, then the growth is really fast.
  2. What is the difference between Schuppenstiel 1 and Schuppenstiel 2?
  3. people buy them because they are rare and not because they are beautiful? don't know if I agree, Adrian slacks is pretty common and still sought after.
  4. so we wont need a permit to sell among growers on this forum? I guess talking on skype/fb etc. could be considered face to face no?
  5. I know that at the end of January UK is out of EU but as far as I know UK will still be subject to EU laws and regulation until 20 of December. I buy many plants from UK but i'm afraid that plants will be stuck somewhere because of backstop or something else which can have bad results. My question is this: will buying plants from UK still be the same for the remaining of this year or do I have to start panicking and buy some plants that I want until the end of this month?
  6. about aliciae, I have a couple of pots in my cold greenhouse. In the summer it got around 40 celsius, but they aren't too happy about that but they grew. In the winter, right now is around 1-3 celsius in the greenhouse and they are doing fine.
  7. a ton of fake 'leviathans' around. There was a big scandal on facebook a few months ago of people accusing Paul Young of selling fakes.
  8. They'll be in a greenhouse in about a month or two. The winter here is too harsh and I need an unheated greenhouse if I want most of my sarracenia/vft to make it through the winter.
  9. The sarracenia are eating too much, to the point of getting filled with bugs and ruining the pitchers because of the brown patches that develop. I want to reduce the amount of insect they catch but they are in the open sun right now, I don't have a greenhouse yet. I tried putting cotton balls inside the pitcher but they get soaked with water from the rain and is causing the same problem. I was thinking to buy some washing sponge and cut little pieces and place them in the tubes. The spoke is airy and doesn't hold water like the cotton does, at least I think. Any other ideas to stop the pitchers from catching bugs? It's ridiculous how much they catch, the fatties will get a diet.
  10. Some people say that Dionaea "La Grosse à Guigui" has bigger traps than B-52. Does anyone have a full grown specimen? Would love to see the size of it's traps. It would be awesome if you also had a B-52 for comparison.
  11. Look great! Is the verigate leaves consistent?
  12. Is this the rust nepenthes get infected with from time to time? I have sulfur powder, neem oil and a fungicide with tebucanozole in it. Will these 3 get rid of it? Maybe is cold damage, since it gets to 9-10 celsius at night for the moment, but it seems N. Hookeriana is having this and is grown indoors on a windowsill. Pictures https://imgur.com/a/0Z6ElMf
