  1. Hi guys, just wondering if something like this is still available? I click the link but it says its not there.
  2. I'm glad I could help. If you need any more info just let me know!
  3. They are amazing! Thank you so much for sharing!
  4. The sounds like a great idea! If you need any help setting it up or anything, I'm always around and looking for things to do when my little one is napping!
  5. Just another thought, if you don't want to buy your own ro unit you can do like Tatter said and get some from a local aquatic shop or another idea would be to ring round some local window cleaners to see if they will sell you some if they are using an ro unit.
  6. I've got an ro unit as I used to keep marine fish plus I keep shrimp. I have this unit: http://www.swelluk.com/d-and-d-r-o-unit-50-us-gallon/ Since buying it I've added extra chambers (just because of keeping my shrimp) but if your only using it for plants then that one is a good buy. It comes with an attachment so you can hook it up to your outside tap so I just screw it on when I want to use then take it off again when I'm done. You will get a lot of waste water from it, a lot more then the good stuff you want to use but if you've got other plants that aren't fussy then the water is really good for them (I've just added a really long airline tube so that it reaches the length of the garden). I can fill about 2x 20ltr buckets each day with it. If I get a chance I'll try and do a short video on it today!
  7. I came down to this beauty this morning!
  8. That last picture is amazing! May I ask how you grow your seeds? I've got some nepenthes seeds coming and I've read in a few places that they can be a bit hit and miss.
  9. I don't know if the video will show up but I filmed a bit on my bog, I'm going to see how the plants do and then decide whether to keep the Nepenthes or the temperate plants in it before winter as I think it may be too dry for the temperate plants. I've also added a second sarracenia to it.
  10. Your nepenthes are amazing! I have sat here this evening looking through your pictures and I am in awe! I can only hope that one day I have a collection as beautiful as yours!
  11. Haha I keep reminding my family that it's a hobby and not an obsession!
  12. Thank you! The nepenthes are the first Carnivorous plant that really caught my attention so my new greenhouse is pretty much centred around their care then I'll see if there are any other spots that will be good for other species. I've just started using a grow light with some of my orchids so I can see myself incorporating a light into the greenhouse too for when the light isn't great.
