  1. Lovely blood red fungi! :-)
  2. Hi, Thanks for your comment on this. My original quote was enthused with saving money concerning purchasing Sphagnum moss and yes, I should obtain a permit (€) and grow my own, no excuse. Just let me say, that I care about the wildlife in these protected woods and I also pick up the trash that is strewn around these areas and dispose of it correctly! Have you seen the crap they throw into old bomb craters or ditches? How about the foresters be tasked with also picking up this crap, as it is destroying the surrounding wildlife. Or are they tasked with just apprehending mushroom collectors and moss enthusiasts? I have just 1ltr of the moss, so I do intend to grow it myself, without going back to the spot that I had found (and not shared!). As you know, this hobby of ours is very expensive and while abiding by the German laws is a must, but sometimes an opportunity can grab us on occasion. Wishing you a good day.
  3. The landowner is the Hessen State, as long as you are not picking mushrooms they are ok with this. ;-)
  4. This one is mind, lovely colour as well! :-)
  5. Some cool fungi through my treks through the German forests near me. ;-)
  6. I have lived in Frankfurt for 11 years, and I have yet to meet an ex-pat living over here that agrees with Brexshit. My in-laws are bewildered as to why we want to leave (they are German). My German is not too bad, but I will have to improve it to get the B1, so I can become a citizen. MAD times we are living in...
  7. I work as an IT Manager for an international school in Frankfurt. I know, not interesting, but it pays the bills!
  8. Many thanks kisscool_38! ;-). That has saved me a ton of cash forking out for Sphagnum, when it is growing not very far from me. Cheers!
  9. Hi Everyone, I am a carnivorous plant enthusiast living in Frankfurt. Looking forward to contribute to this board! We have a lot of forests in and around Frankfurt, so if any of you are living in the region, maybe we can meet up at some point? I have yet to find sundews or butterworts, but I may of found quite a few carpets of Sphagnum moss (getting confirmation from the Sphagnum moss part of this forum). In any case, it is good to be here! ;-)
  10. Hi Everyone! New to the CP forum. I just want to confirm that the image uploaded is Sphagnum moss as I have found a huge carpet of this within the forests of Frankfurt. Many Thanks for your help!
