  1. Hey guys, Was bulking up my nepenthes collection and looking for some specific species unavailable currently in the UK (having already ordered and had a great experience with Matt over at Hantsflytrap). Turning to the EU, I decided to try a few smaller suppliers in addition to Andrea Wistuba and Roraima. I found Plants.plantae.sk, run by Michal Parvanov. So I sent an email asking about delivery to the UK, availability, etc. To my surprise, he was very responsive, fluent in English, and I felt he was rather helpful with shipping arrangements - even threw in a freebie (Genlisea Flexuosa). I'll have to drop by his nursery for a visit if I go to Slovakia! Anyhow, the plants arrived quickly, sent bare root (+sphagnum) as standard. The leaves looked healthy with traps present on the plant, and a good tangle of roots on all of them. I often find that if the sphagnum ball itself being live a good sign of good conditions at nursery. I've attached a couple photos for reference: After unwrapping from box/bubble-wrap: A young tentaculata (BE-3192, Murud Sarawak), starting to show some of the ovular openings expected in latter life. A burkei (BE-3254) with two growth points present. And finally the young Genlisea Flexuosa - this is a first for me, so will be looking into cultivation tips. For the time being, it's going into my lowland tank. Cheers all, and happy weekend! P.S. I was looking for N. Ramispina - unfortunately he'd just sold out! Don't suppose anyone has any idea if there are any suppliers for it?

    Hey everyone!

    Just dropping in to say hello. I'd been reading forum posts here for tips and tricks on cultivation of some beginner Nepenthes, Sarracenia, Drosera species since I was a kid, and decided now would be a good time to actually join in with live discussion etc. It's great to meet you all, and I hope to be learning much more going forwards! Cheers, Wayne
