  2. http://www.omnisterra.com/bot/cp_home.cgi?name=dionaea&search=cultivars This site is already quite up to date regarding the origins of various dionaea cultivars
  3. Hi welcome An irish online shop if you are interested https://www.vftshop.com/ Regards Lee
  4. Growtents .. if you get permission from the boss to take over a room maybe an option ? Windowsill plants do quite well.. pings and dionaea
  5. I started with one plant.. small greenhouse.. then a bigger one but kept the smaller one too. Added benches with double shelves.. A couple of plants outside for a bog effect.. Some in stands cause they look nice.. ect
  6. As mentioned.. an osmosis unit or a water butt is also very useful
  7. I have killed my fair share of cephs.. no problems with other carnie plants.
  8. Flytrap.nl no longer exist.. I picked up the last few dionaea Jeroen had a while ago.
  9. What has worked for me specifically for dionaea ( venus fly traps) is to submerge the plant completely in rain water for one day. You maybe will have to repeat this until the aphids have all died. The first time will kill most but sometimes eggs will hatch later on so the chances are there could be more aphids. Look mostly under the leaves and on the stem .. that's where they like to hide. With a magnifying glass you can easily see them .. I used my iPhone with a magnifying app to take the photos.
  10. I have algae too.. I'm just going to drain the water .. clean the trays and refill. It's not much water anyway in my trays at the moment. Additionally i noticed worms of some sort in the soil of my dionaea so will repot too to be certain i start off spring with good healthy plants. Check your plants for aphids too. i see they are clearly visible and very hungry.
  11. No problem for venus flytraps with cold weather.. I have mine in a glass greenhouse. Temperatures in The Netherland got down to -17 degrees. All my pots were frozen last week but no deaths at all of my +200 dionaea
  12. I imagine some of the UK growers are able to export with certification and vice versa.
  13. Congrats.. looks like a winner.. nice looking plants
