  1. I know someone who used heavy duty velcro to secure a couple of growbag trays to his window sills.

    Psittacina advice, please

    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.

    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.

  9. I managed to get a book of his a couple of years ago and this planted a seed. Yes, he will always be truly inspirational, and, like other great people, will never be forgotten. It may be of interest to know that Paul (P&J carnivorous Plants, Hereford.) continues Mr. Slacks work in Hereford, having taken over Marston Exotics several years ago. I met Paul and his wife at his open day a couple of weeks ago, and, within minutes, it was obvious that his depth of knowledge and enthusiasm was vast. He also keeps a national Sarracenia collection, and other carnivorous plants, many of which he inherited from Mr. Slack and which he has subsequently cultivated. Thank you Mr. Slack, and to all others who add to our knowledge on a daily basis.

    How you getting on with the fan Robert? I got a good deal on two 7" fans from China (3 week wait). One I run from USB on a car jump starter, the other waiting for a solar panel with MPPT controller ,again from China, including 7" fan for £21 free post.

    A grow Sphagnum pdf guide

    As a start to growing my own I found this pdf from a search. Thought it might be useful to others (if it has not already been posted). http://rbg-web2.rbge.org.uk/bbs/Resources/Fletcher.pdf
  14. Hi Gustavo, Great looking plants and photo's, thank you. Could you tell me the name of the Sarracenia in the third picture on the right hand side please?

    I moved from Westland brand to Shamrock last year and all plants very healthy and growing well now. I left a small outside bog planter in Westland and they ain't happy, all twisted and stunted ( but did get -8 in the winter.). I bought a collection of VFT's (including a couple of garden centre rescues) and replanted into Shamrock. All recovered and are now growing well, especially the rescued two.
