  1. googling what you said it looks like you are right. Thank you for your help mate.
  2. Hi all, Can anyone Identify this nepenthes please. I thought it was a miranda hybrid but Im not sure. Thanks Dan
  3. Can anyone recommend a decent low cost RO unit? I'm thinking of connecting one to the outside tap. I've no idea where to start with one
  4. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone could advise me on the topic of water. In short, I collect alot rainwater which has lasted me all year without having to buy any large amounts of diironized water. However my sarracenia flava and dionea have spread like crazy and I plan to repot them into a bigger pots next year so their water need will go up and I have recently expanded the number of plants with 6 other small specimens of sarracenia. I do have a few tropicals indoors too. I was wondering whether a zerowater filter might be my answer, or should I consider a reverse osmosis unit (RO) ( but would my collection size be worth buying it). I've never tested my tap water but I am planning on getting a TDS meter to test it. I do have an outside tap but I have no idea how to setup a RO with it or whether it needs good pressure. Really appreciate your help.
  5. I cut off all the dead pitches and even the winter leaves in spring. It allows the sun to get deeper to the rhizome. Your plant will produce better pitchers if you cut it in spring time.
  6. It completely normal for them to do that. :)
  7. linuxman is correct. Do you know the name of the species or hybrid? Sarracenia need full sun to look their best. They have unusual shaped leaves which is not very effiecient at getting sunlight so hence they need full sun (6+hours) to produce good looking pitchers.
  8. Hi everyone. I'm new here, I was wondering has anyone used Bord a Mona peat premium irish moss peat and is it safe to use on cps? It says there is no fertilizer, its from high quality Irish sphagnum moss peat and free from additives.
  9. Hi I was wondering how this worked for you? We're there any problems in the end?
