  1. Hi, Covid permitting it looks like we're a go. Full house of sellers and speakers too Please check out the information on the webpage, the link below goes to the registration page https://carnivora.nl/registrations/?fbclid=IwAR2c-GSQ4FPPqEHKDjBAu4o0Sr9qw0-qsuuKH8_3F4pOSgFnupdt4s0Ojfo
  2. Attention Teachers! We are offering 24 GRANTS for teachers around the world to bring carnivorous plants into their classrooms! To learn more visit: https://www.carnivorousplants.org/education/ClassroomGrants
  3. in the weekend of the 9th and 10th of October Carnivora will host an EEE! Well, unless the rules relating to the COVID situation change of course. The Botanical garden in Leiden has agreed to host this weekend, so great location... check! As we are all dying to get a descent event on the menu again let's keep our fingers crossed that the sailing is smooth. More details will follow as they develop.
  4. Ghent was no longer an option due to some changes in the board and some things like that. COVID-19 just keeps making things difficult. There has been a look at doing something that can be put together very fast in case we get a travel break this summer but to have a good field of sellers and visitors alike planning ahead and having some certainties is really necessary to get a full blown meeting going.
  5. It is introduced according to this: http://www.efloras.org/browse.aspx?flora_id=1 "Drosera filiformis is disjunct in the outer Coastal Plain, from Nova Scotia and Connecticut to Maryland, southeastern North Carolina, and Bay and Washington counties, Florida. The species has been reported from South Carolina, but no specimens from there have been seen. It is introduced in Caroline County, Virginia, and Preston County, West Virginia, and possibly other localities peripheral to its range."
  6. Due to the current situation of the COVID-19 virus pandemic, the 13th ICPS-conference in Himeji, Japan is postponed to May 2022. Specific information will be announced at a later time.
  7. Yes see previous post. Publication: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.43:137 (2014) Sarracenia leucophylla Raf. * Sarracenia purpurea L. * Sarracenia leucophylla Raf. * Sarracenia ?
  8. yes Cultivar: Sarracenia 'Eva' H.Luhrs Publication: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.43:137 (2014) Synonym: =?Sarracenia leucophylla Raf. * Sarracenia purpurea L. * Sarracenia leucophylla Raf. * Sarracenia ? Originator: R.van Kessel, Carniflora, NL, c. 2007 Nominant: H.Luhrs, Amsterdam, NL, 2010 Registrant: H.Luhrs, 22. 8. 2014 Awards/patents: RHS Award of Garden Merit (H3) 2015 (trial entry 41) Horicultural comment: Registered 25. 12. 2014 {JS} Standard: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.43:137 (2014) Propagation: vegetative Etymology: after Els Vogel-Adamse Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.43:137 (2014) "Much of the latter's features are well visible in this cultivar, producing 6-8 new leaves up to 28 cm long throughout the season and lasting for as long as 7-8 months. They taper gradually from bottom to top to produce a broad cone with a wide almost heart-shaped hood, of which the side lobes are somewhat folded backwards while the inner surface is abundantly covered with little bristly hairs. The pitchers are primarily green, apart from a few red longitudinal veins, with whitish-pink fenestrations in the upper part below the mouth. The hood is very white fenestrated onto a light green background with red veins pronounced on the inner side of the hood (Fig. 3). As the pitchers mature the color in the upper part becomes dark pink, especially the interior and the mouth, while the green inner side of the hood becomes a background for dark red veins. The combination of a dark pink upper part of the pitcher and white-mottled green hood gives this cultivar a unique appearance. The flower petals are deep red."
  9. and the really sad thing is that this wasn't unexpected as this is a percentage we see in most groups of plants that are assessed
  10. Not really a party in this but just wondering, how will Carniflora (founded 1994) react to both nurseries?

  12. Hi, In these times you might find these free downloads useful to keep the kids busy. There are coloring plates, word search and more. Enjoy and stay safe https://www.carnivorousplants.org/education/TeacherResources?fbclid=IwAR04DAXXyPOAM018oEVMlHkVvWIXn35GmC3KDG-AuLESYbTWzTzon2EQuV0
  13. ICPS conference Japan postponed. Currently infection to the new coronavirus is spreading on a global scale. WHO assessed this situation as a pandemic. The US declared a state of emergency yesterday. Japan is now ready to declare the same, as the pertinent law was approved by the Diet. We cannot expect change for the better. Therefore, the organizer team would like to postpone 13th ICPS Conference - Japan by 1 year. We will aim at holding the conference in May 2021. However, we may reconsider it depending on the situation. As for refund of the paid registration fees, please refer to the conference home page. This conference page may take a couple of days to update. The Japanese CP societies.

  15. 13th ICPS Conference May 22−24, 2020 Himeji, Japan Himeji Castle. Cropped image from photo © Corpse Reviver / Wikimedia Commons / CC-BY-SA-3.0 GFDL. The ICPS Conference 2020 will be held in Himeji City, Hyogo Prefecture from Friday, May 22 to Sunday, May 24, 2020. The city is renowned for Himeji Castle, a world heritage site that proudly represents the beauty of Japanese castles. Also, there is the Hyogo Prefectural Flower Center in the vicinity (about a 45-minute drive), which has a world-class carnivorous plant collection. Himeji is accessible from Kansai International Airport or from Tokyo by “Shinkansen” bullet train. The 3-day conference will be held at a conference facility known as “Biz Space,” located a 7-minute walk from Himeji Station and within walking distance of several major hotels. The lectures will cover a wide range of topics such as scientific/academic research, horticulture, conservation, etc. We are planning to bring in English-Japanese interpreters so that more Japanese members can participate in the conference. Plant displays and sales booths, including a Japanese top-class CP nursery, will be available in the same building during the conference. The conference banquet is to be held on May 23 or 24 at a near-by restaurant, where you can enjoy a good mix of Japanese and Western cuisines together with an impressive nighttime view of Himeji Castle. On May 25, we are planning a special day trip to the Hyogo Prefectural Flower Center. We will be guided through the amazing collections of Nepenthes, Sarracenia, and other carnivorous plants in the spectacular carnivorous plant greenhouse as well as the backyard. You will be meeting the giant N. clipeata and N. pervillei that were introduced in the 2018 ICPS conference. On May 26, we will enjoy an excursion to see the local habitats of Drosera rotundifolia, D. tokaiensis, and D. lunata, and maybe a few Utricularia, and then a trip to Tokyo for an overnight stay. On the following day (May 27), we will visit the habitat of Pinguicula ramosa, the Japanese endemic butterwort, on Mt. Nyoho, Nikko City. Note that it might be too early to see the flowers. Details including dates of the field trips will be finalized shortly. The 2020 ICPS Conference will be hosted by the three Japanese CP societies: The Japanese Carnivorous Plant Society (JCPS), The Carnivorous Plant Exploration Society (CPES), and The Tokai Carnivorous Plant Society (TCPS). These 3 societies mainly cover the Kanto, Kansai, and Tokai regions, respectively, and have been collaborating with each other and contributing to the prevalence and awareness of carnivorous plants in Japan. More information on the conference will be posted when it becomes available. We are looking forward to seeing you in Himeji in May 2020!
  16. Forum refuses to remember me so i have to log in every time..just a minor issue compared to other things though.
  17. @Richard BunnThe seeds got distributed with the request to learn how to grow them and get them out in cultivation so no poaching of this plant would ever be needed. People got selected for knowing their dews and some are commercial parties like Kamil with the skill to produce relatively many plants by TC. Others grow from seed and that takes longer. Finding things out means exactly that. As this species is completely new to cultivation we needed to find out temperarue, light, soil mix, does it need GA3, etc, etc. Stuff like that is being written up and will appear in CPN. As for others planning to sell..that is up to them as it is up to them if they want to be identified. The growers are everywhere,: America (I mean the continent, not just one country), Europe, Africa, Australia so wide distribution. As it obivious from these posts that I'm one of them: I don't sell them. I chose to give them to people (and a BG) who are likely to keep it alive and to be an flowering adult with the pointers we found and are still finding and thus will get it in cultivation that way.
  18. @Dieball never got below around 60 - 70% @Richard [email protected] LittleNo use looking for seeds. All legally collected seeds got send to and are used by specialists around the world (including UK) for exactly the purpose of finding things out. Non of those plants is near flowering size for some years.
  19. In trials damage occured at 30 C. I have daytemperature at about 22-24 and night 18 -20 or so
  20. seed raised is a bit slower than TC. Sean is right about it not liking heat. Also doesn't like wet feet, so proper drainage and give it lots of light.
  21. If you are in to South African species you have probably ordered at some time from Silverhill Seeds or grow a plant somebody else once ordered there. The owners of this company Rod and Rachel Saunders got murdered in South Africa. Rod was found in February, now Rachels body has been found too. https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/south-africa/2018-06-13-body-of-missing-uk-botanist-rachel-saunders-finally-found/
  22. Yes, he died last Sunday after a short stay in hospital aged 87.
