  3. good to see alata in the wild,it seems to have gone out of fashion with all the new hybrid moorei's about

    Just an update after doing a little search. Our friend mr Nimmo of sands close in 2007 was convicted of theft at crown court

    FRAUD

    The house pictured was NOT mr Nimmo's address unless he has moved there, FROM a maisonette further down the road. I worked on the house pictured as a vacant property.The plants i saw were not in this property. I have posted this in talk about anything as a discussion,don't reply if you don't like it,but i don't hear Mr Nimmo complaining someone posted his address and photo's. so if anyone else gets scammed by him don't bother posting it on here, NO ONE CARES! ada

    FRAUD

    We call it common sense in yorkshire,if it seems too good to be true,it usually is. But the point was, He also made the cp community aware of mr Nimmo's scam AGAIN!

    FRAUD

    So the topic is locked! agreed,the final bit was not about cp's. But someone had a problem with the same person. He was trying to find out information to try to get his money back if possible. He was also bringing it to the attention of CP GROWERS that this person is still actively conning people! something we should all be aware of. I think shutting it down in such a manner was a bit heavy handed and could have been done better. i hope this isn't a sign of things to come.......... ada

    Lack of Pollen

    Is it very humid Ron? try leaving the doors open a bit more
  11. i think you should. the seeds are in a very wet humid enviroment. if they germinate they will grow to suit the place they grow in and won't need hardening off
  12. I never bother covering seeds. Just give the kids some old sarracenia compost wet it and throw the seed on. I usually let them do it at new year when i sow my sarra seeds so they get well stratified. Or just chuck them around the sarra pots and see what comes up. In fact a few weeks ago i found some 2012 vft seed and just threw them in an old tray i use for any spare bits of seed that stick to my hands or blow about. I don't expect any until next spring,we'll see what comes up later
  13. if they are outside there is a good chance small bumblebees will have pollinated them. Inside no chance

    Red darlingtonia

    It depends on if they have inherited the red gene.some are red as small seedlings and turn green as they mature. most plants do this sadly. when they are semi mature in quite a few years then you will be able to tell for sure. Remember to give them plenty of sun in the autumn. ada
  15. i'd go with heat stress,pot too small and roots can get hot and dry very quickly. Put them in bigger pots and they will be better off,mine are in 8 or 9 inch pots,these fluctuate less in temperature and hold moisture better
  16. not yet! have patience grasshopper. september or october when the pod dries out and splits.

    Attention

    well spotted Harro,i'm sure someone will get duped into buying it despite your sharp eyes
  19. i think we should be able to have our say and discuss anything we want to,you don't have to read it or reply. Moderators can step in and calm things down if need be,we are all or mostly adults and have views that vary,discussion is good,it helps us understand other people. It can even lead to new friendships,we don't need a big brother type of forum. ada
  20. not enough light for sarracenia inside,some will grow under these conditions quite well but they really need full sun for as long as you can give it them to grow properly.Either that or its a bad clone. pictures also help,much better than words,was it a garden centre plant? e-bay or bought from a collector,all these little things can help with a diagnosis. ada
  21. Fred is fine,he just didn;t like the new forum set up,He'll be at Stephens open day all being well
  22. forgot about that Carl,but i think its a better explanation than anything we have come up with up to now. Simple factors have a great effect on some things,eg mountain hares and stoats turning white in winter,still the same animal
  23. Here's an interesting topic to read that might help us all understand why cephalotus don't all grow the same for everybody. In short epigenetics is the study of external factors that can turn on or off a gene without altering the DNA of an organism. google it and enjoy,could explain the whole mystery.We just need to find out what turns the plants growth gene back on. ada
