  2. dangle them into flytraps or drosera with the small ones
  3. sun is in short supply in yorkshire in winter,especially by the pennines where i live.
  4. I can send you some seeds when they are ready. I have given up with filiformis totally,i don't think it likes our damp winters

    teasel plant liquid
  6. Thanks Marcel, I have already read about increased seed production in plants that have been fed against non fed plants. It was the liquid production i was interested in. The majority of plants don't have this dark liquid,only clear liquid that could easily be dismissed as rain water or condensed dew,so easily over looked and untested. Only two plants show this dark liquid out of about twenty,just took a picture and put it in the gallery
  7. Are they seed grown,it could just be that that clone,or seeds from that clone don't do well in heat. I grow some in the greenhouse,from seed and all from one location and these are fine with the heat even when the doors have been shut, we all know the temperatures a closed greenhouse can get to. saying that i can't grow filiformis,they just rot in early spring for me. ada
  8. Anyone know anything about teasel plants secretions? I ask because we grow them in the garden,last week i found a large wasp drowned in the lower leaf axils where water accumilates. At least i thought it drowned,it was a large area of water that had collected but the wasp could easily have climbed out i would have thought. This week,looking at new leaves opening,i noticed in some a very dark liquid?collecting in the new leaf axils. It isn't dirty rainwater before anyone chips in with that idea. It looks like very dark tea colour or like liquid nicotine.I have never seen th
  9. That could be due to the spray Dan,sometimes if done and not dry before the sun gets on them it will cause this,even if done the day or evening before. It doesn't have much effect on tortrix either when they are all ready there,i find. Once in the plant it has an effect of repelling them or the female from laying eggs. ada
  10. what numbers are you looking for Alan? i might have an old sale list but it is in no way complete

    Big purps question

    its a big plant alright. But i think it could also do with more light,it is very green. I would expect a bit more colour in the plant by now,having grown all those new pitchers. If plants are a bit short of light this can cause the pitchers to be greener and longer. ada
  12. never used them,but anyone who has to wait for the plants to grow for 4 months before they can supply them is a no,no it my book. they don't wait to take your money,do they?
  13. I have seen a picture,somewhere years ago and it was a small heavily veined ornata type,more veined than Stephens
  14. fertilizer in the soil. If used in the wrong strength,it will cause this.I have seen it happen especially in purps when osmocote is used for too long in the growing season.
  15. Fertilizer in the soil can cause this,many of the little divisions will root if buried in wet sphagnum or pushed deep into wet compost even when they dont have a single root

  20. It is quite awkward to post pictures on here,compared to other places. some times it is straight forward and sometimes i just give up and don't post. Many friends have said its too hard ada
