  1. First is SF11 from Phil wilson N.carolina. second is AS X LW and third is Laurens Hybrid,last is s.flava from miramar beach, seeds are available from these plants,i just posted the list
  2. It's not good to grow temperate pings inside long term.they should be outside in the cold weather for full And proper dormancy
  3. I can,t see any red in the leaves or dewy glands,so it looks like an alba to me,they are very common and cheap.they arrive in most collections as hitch hikers,posting doesn't, t do drosera,s any favours either,it,ll pick up soon
  4. Always stood in water? Very warm over summer? Root rot or sudden die off syndrome
  5. They are more tolerant whilst small,some will die over winter but you only want the strongest plants
  6. They will be fine,they grow up here without any protection at all
  7. Keep trying.old seed can still germinate next spring. I found some of my own old vft seed (six years old)and it still germinated great after a winter in a cold green house,same with 3yo ping seeds
  8. first of all,never cover cp seeds with anything,not even peat dusts. If they were stratified correctly,for 6-8 weeks with a touch of frost,the drosera and vft's should germinate in 6 weeks or so. ceph seeds are in a league of their own and germinate when they want to,sometimes years later. sarracenia seeds should be 6 weeks also but every now and then some just fail,i have loads germinate like cress this year except for one batch,the seeds looked fat and healthy but not one germinated, just a thought it might be a bit too warm for germination of some seeds at those temps,try lowering it a bit with a good drop at night
  9. i always sow temperate p[ng seed as soon as it is ripe. Some seed always germinate in the same season ,giving them a head start. The rest will germinate naturally the following spring.
  10. That,s a great show Phil,will you pollinate them?
  11. You will also have to spray the plants against greenfly attack ( it will happen)the outdoor growing season is much shorter too. One last thing,are those lumps of limestone around the plants?,most carnivorous plants hate lime.
  12. great location pictures jff.
  13. The sun was my biggest problem,it dried the rock out too much especially when it was windy.my garden gets sun all day,so unless I put it in a bucket full of water,I was constantly playing catch up watering the plants so they didn't, t burn in hot weather.I suppose you could set up a small solar pump now to do the job for me.
