  1. Thanks for all the above comments. The plant is slowly recovering and producing a nice clump of pitchers. They are still quite small, 5mm or so long, but I am quite encouraged.
  2. Hi Jaicen, I've always wanted but never managed to see drosera in habitat. Any chance that you could identify the location?
  3. Any suggestions as to what I should feed it with Alexis?
  4. I've been using the peat for a number of years with sarracenia and drosera with very good results.
  5. In the winter I keep the temperature in the greenhouse above 2-4 degrees C. It's so long since I tried Neps that I can't remember which ones I've tried.
  6. I don't seem to be able to keep Neps alive. My greenhouse is full of lovely healthy sarracenia and drosera, but I would like to be able to keep Neps alive. Does anybody have any recommendations for a Nep rooky?
  7. About two weeks ago. Washed off the old compost and repotted into 1:1 irish moss peat:perlite.
  8. I've recently repotted it in 1:1 peat:perlite.
  9. I have a cephalotus, labelled "vigorous clumping" which I got from Stephen Morley a few years ago. It is not living up to it's name and has gradually declined over the years, so that it now has only a few non carnivorous leaves about 3-4 mm long. It is just beginning to make tiny new pitchers for this year, but does anybody have advice about coaxing it back into more vigorous growth? It has over wintered in an unheated greenhouse.
  10. I have a Cephalotus, "vigorous clumping", which I got from Stephen Morley a few years ago and it has gradually declined so that there are now only a few non carnivorous leaves about 5mm long. It is just beginning to make some tiny new pitchers, but I was hoping that somebody could advise me on how to encourage it into more healthy and vigorous growth. It has over wintered in an unheated greenhouse.
  11. Many thanks, I got the plant last autumn and it seems to be doing well. I kept it indoors over winter, and now it is in the greenhouse and making new pitchers, so all seems to be well. Any tips for over-wintering this year?
  12. I usually grow Sarracenia and Drosera, but recently obtained this plant at Morrison's. Anybody tell me what it is?

  14. It seems that Morrison's are stocking CPs again. I added the following Nep to my collection the other day. Since this is my first Nep, could anybody: 1. Identify it. 2. Give me some idea of the conditions needed to keep it alive. Thanks. David C. http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.php?a...=si&img=453
