  1. Hi matey, and welcome. We got off to an early start here in the SW. All sarracenia, Sundews and Flytraps are growing well. Bog gardens are a bit behind though.
  2. I have about 12 pots in the unheated greenhouse and several plants in an outdoor bog garden sink. All survived -8 freeze-ups and are bursting with new growth, although the bog garden plants are a bit behind. The tiny seed grown chaps also survived and are growing well. As Richard says, they love the sun, and where the sun shines THERE ARE FLIES and bugs to nosh on
  3. Hi FT. Those auto-vent openers are a good buy and reasonably cheap. Came in very useful during hot weather last year. My greenhouse is a few miles from my home and a cannot always get there.
  4. Morning. Won't take long to fill then LOL. Have you thought about water trays? A mate helped me to construct some last year. I fitted the pond liner. Lots more room to get pots in with loads of storage underneath the tray benches.

    Hi Everyone

    Welcome Justin.
  6. Looks like a 12 footer? Loads of room and looking good.
  7. As RobH says, TDS (and pH) meters are cheap essentials. A lot of my rainwater comes off the roof and has never been a problem. I also have an RO system for when water gets in short supply, a cheap used kit off the Bay.
  8. I know someone who used heavy duty velcro to secure a couple of growbag trays to his window sills.
  9. Hi Martin..If you can get over to Paul's open day near Hereford the first week in August you will enjoy it. See google for P J Carnivorous plants.

    Could you explain your seed light box set up please ? I have been looking into a similar set up. Thanks.
  11. Hi Christopher, good to meet you sir.
  12. Thanks for starting this thread Guy. The info from Richard is excellent and just what I needed to improve the lot of my psittacina, although they appear to be happy a la' Sarracenia treatment.
  13. Hi Fernando, welcome .
  14. Just a little add to this thread. The small 10w panel was not beefy enough to power the fan and trickle the battery (12v). I invested in a new 100w panel and deep cycle battery for my camper van trips. This is more than enough to keep both fans going and power two bottle top misters 24/7. So I got to thinking what else could run from 12v power? At the moment I am researching better misters and some lighting and maybe a heating pad.
