  1. Lowii seems to be frontrunner then Has anyone here tried it on a windowsill?
  2. It certainly does, but I'm anticipating having a fair bit more grow space by then Day temps are hitting about 28 max at the moment - I haven't measured on a full-on summer day yet but I'd expect a few degrees above that.
  3. I'm looking at adding a small nep to my windowsill collection. Currently the two I have growing there are Bill Bailey and hookeriana. The three I'm currently considering are: N aristolochioides x robcantleyi N lowii N eymae I usually get at least an 8 degree drop in temperature at night, about 5 hrs direct sun per day and the plants get misted at least morning and evening for additional humidity. Any thoughts on suitability of any of these three plants? Lowii is my preference at the moment but its reputation is definitely making me hesitate a little!
  4. Noticed this bifurcated and very red flower stalk on one of my drosera spatulata yesterday. Is this just a one-off or does anyone know if it's characteristic of any particular species within the complex?

    Drosera Biflora

    Has anyone here grown drosera biflora? I've been trying to find cultivation information on it as I've got the chance to pick up some seeds but can't seem to find anything. Any experiences or links to info would be much appreciated!
  6. I'm looking at trying nepenthes from seed, but it's proving to be quite difficult to find much of a selection in the UK. The bulk that I have found seem to be collected from wild plants too, which I'm not 100% comfortable with. Any suggestions on best places to source nep seeds in the UK?
  7. It's looking like it may be new nep time and a Robcantleyi hybrid could be up next! :) If anyone has any experiences or pictures of their hybrids I'd be keen to see - particularly Robcantleyi x Veitchii or Robcantleyi x (Aristolochioides x Spectabilis). Thanks in advance!
  8. Over the next month or so I'll be putting together an intermediate terrarium for my neps but I really want to add some utricularia for additional colour. Right now I'm thinking a good covering of sandersonii or uniflora but really want a couple of other species as well to provide some accent spots. I'm currently leaning towards alpina, geminiloba or reniformis. The terrarium is going to be 45cm tall with 9-10cm of growing medium, so one of my main concerns is height. I've read that reniformis in particular can get especially tall - would this be suitable for a terrarium of this size? Any suggestions on which species could work well in addition to sandersonii/uniflora?
  9. I'm in a first floor flat with no usable outside space, which isn't ideal for my temperate plants. I've got a couple of small windowsills outside two of my windows, both with a usable space of 14x50cm. I'm toying with the idea of putting my plants out there but would need some sort of secured windowbox on each to put the plants in. If anyone has any suggestions on what I could use for this or how I could go about securing a windowbox (without drilling holes in walls etc) I would be very grateful.
  10. I've not bought seeds from Triffid before but have bought several plants from Andy and I've always found him to be particularly helpful and friendly. I'm sure if you were to contact him he'd be happy to help. Also, if you do go down the route of buying a VFT and then pollinating it I'll recommend Andy for this as well - he's got the best selection of VFTs I've seen in the UK and plants are always healthy and a good size.
  11. At least you know they'll have had a bit of an extra flush through!
  12. Exactly what i wanted to hear, thanks carambola! It may be time for me to look into picking up pulchella, pearl and scorpioides then.
  13. I'm planning a semi-planted terrarium, with some plants being planted and some being in pots. Of those I'm hoping to plant I'm really hoping to include some pygmy sundews. From what I've read some pygmies have very long root systems, but I'm aiming to have 10cm of growing medium at most (terrarium will only be 45cm tall). Any suggestions on which ones could be suitable for planting in medium of this depth?
  14. Unfortunately outside isn't an option at the moment (though it's something I'm working on). I guess I'll take this one as a learning experience!
  15. Thanks for the reply Dunc, that's very reassuring! Would you remove any of the dead/dying pitchers?
