  1. I'd say it was pretty exceptional. Which is why I'd pay happily £20 for it instead of the usual £10!
  2. Sound like springtails. Move a capensis leaf over to the flytrap and it'll catch them.
  3. What are they potted in out of interest? Fresh peat doesn't usually grow slime
  4. That's what Google says! Telford v Guiseley Whoever they are!
  5. I like that one the best. A lot of red mooreis are too red and you lose the white or pink.
  6. Starve them! In my experience the more they catch the less red the traps get. I can't see a single closed trap in the bottom photo. I suspect that once they have an optimum level of nutrition it's more advantageous to maximise photosynthesis, and open traps are more efficient for that. So they produce less red pigment so there is more chance of a trap remaining open. Also try repotting over winter if they haven't had fresh peat for a while.
  7. I know, you never have enough room! Once everything has been repotted over the winter I can populate that end bench and maybe sort out a potting shed. I like the Melcourt, but I do like the higher water retention you get with peat. So after some experiments I've settled on this mix: 3 parts Melcourt Growbark Pine 3 parts perlite 1 part peat 1 part Kelkay RHS horticultural grit + a top dressing of just the Growbark
  8. On top of the soil. Don't sprinkle anything on top - they need light to germinate.
  9. Looking good. I think it's Ctenium Fields (I've got one from there as well)
  10. Alexis


    I have a pubescent leucophylla x flava var. rubricorpora as well, so hybrids can inherit the trait.
  11. Bear in mind some red tubed plants struggle to colour up if you cut everything off over winter.
  12. Could be hibernating for the winter?
  13. I think that's just a characteristic of that plant. The teeth can be quite varied
