  1. The very same, I just couldn't bring myself to write the name down.. Not sure if its registered to be honest.
  2. This is the plant I meant; http://img518.imageshack.us/img518/4813/p1010291za4.jpg
  3. Oooh err.. beauties indeed, the lowii x truncata is stunning..
  4. Looks like the sanguinea clones they had at Kew recently and im currently experimenting with osmocote on to me..
  5. The very same parents? do you mean the same species or the same plants? I understood it as species.. So if someone lists a plant on the registry as N. Sillyname whose parents are sibuyanensis x mira for example. I then make the same cross with my own different sibuyanensis and mira what would I call it? N. Sillyname (Wasted) or N. Sillyname or N. sib x mira or my very own Grex name that I choose such as N. Silliername Im a little lost
  6. Hmmm odd, never had a tendril vanish like that, must be a logical explanation.. Nothing on the floor I assume?

  8. You raise some good points Phil, but I am much happier labelling plants via the full N. blah x wassname label unless I know for sure they are a cultivar, ie. I'm happy to label my talangensis x maxima a 'lady pauline' because I know that it comes from genuine vegative stock from BE. If I make a cross myself which happens to be on the grex registry I'm not going to label the plant after some volcano in hawaii just because 1 nursery has already named it, I'm going to label it N. blah x wassname unless it deserves cultivar status in which case then there's the icps cultivar system. I'm certainly not going to name any plant N. Pompey, that's just daft sorry, football related snobbery! Just my opinions you understand!
  9. I just don't see any need to replace the naming standards we already have for hybrids, what's wrong with nepenthes blah x wassname, why give it a name unless its an oustanding plant and if that's the case make it a cultivar and register it accordingly. I noticed that there seems to be only 2 nurseries registering plants on the grex registry site.
  10. Sounds like slug damage (unless my young niece lives near you and broke in with scissors) any slug trails?

  12. Ive been following the thread below with interest and wondered what the opinions are over here for using the grex registry with Nepenthes.. http://pitcherplants.proboards34.com/index...amp;thread=6238 All seems a little un-necessary to me and probably a little confusing.. but then im not really into hybrids.. Anyone else have any thoughts on the subject??

    Seedling-s?

    I thought all leaves develop traps, (unlike nepenthes seedling for example) although im not 100% sure.. Whenever ive tried them from seed ive never noticed any leaves without traps although I dont look that often.. have a look at these; http://www.flytrapranch.com/photos/albums/...aby-dionaea.jpg

    Im afraid to say that it looks like a weed to me, cant really see though.. you should have tiny tiny little traps on a vft seedling.

    Not much.. PVT; http://digital-photography-school.com/blog...l-camera-users/ May be of some use..
  17. Wahey.. another cracker from the famous Lumb collection.. Just been out waving the laptop screen with this image on in front of mine, it can only encourage it ;-)
  18. Got home today to find mine on my doorstep, no additional money to pay.. Great issue, love the format!

    Your camera should have a good macro mode, the symbol with the flower on usually..
  20. Afternoon.. Gone? Really gone? from the tendril? not just withered? Sounds like a pest to me..
  21. Peat moss and LFS are two different things; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sphagnum Sphagnum peat is basically decayed sphagnum moss, LFS is the moss itself.. I think wyevale have stopped doing peat moss, not sure about anywhere else... edit.. Ooops.. typo..
  22. VFT's are not really my thing im afraid.. i'd just let nature take its course though, sounds like your doing everything right
  23. under a tenner for both together I would have thought. why dont you ring them, saves a wasted journey if theyre out of stock..
