  1. I know their nepenthes seeds are notoriously bad for viability but then nep seeds dont last as long as others. Not sure about their drosera seeds though I'm afraid. Hopefully someone else will be able to advise on that.....
  2. Great pics Brian, looking good!
  3. Looking good Carl, lets hope the nice colouring gets even better with time :) Hope it grows quickly for you too. Thanks for the update!
  4. Wanna swap Gary?? Getting a bit miffed with it all now - people that havent got snow are bloody lucky I say!! A bit is nice and exciting but too much is just a pain!!
  5. Yep its supposed to be the worst snow in Sheffield for 31 years! We hardly ever get any, normally a couples of inches at most - certainly for the last 15 years or so. I remember it being a bit worse when I was really young, it must be how the Scots feel most winters! Atleast we havent got it quite as cold - brrrrr!
  6. Here was my front door this morning! Goes further down too as a couple of steps below the door line. And a few more....

    Lack of coloration

    Firslty welcome to cpuk! You say it is bright sun - is it full direct bright sun?? Does the person you exchanged with grow in a greenhouse? Also it seems the friend you mention is growing several clones in that big pot - which ones did she send you? Some of hers had bright red traps buit some were only pink in the traps - perhaps you got the ones that were pink? In which case yours dont look much different. Perhaps try a clone that you know gets very red traps? Heather
  8. I'm sure people will understand under the circumstances, make sure you take enough time to grieve, dont worry about the plants for the monent. Sending my deepest sympathy to you and your family. Take care, Heather xx
  9. Nope never enough time - usually have to quickly run in and water them when needs be, always have so many things I need to do but takes ages to actually get round to doing ti, many waiting for be repotted, lots of leaf cuttings I need to take to keep up with the requests from people....... I could do with an extra few hours each day atleast! By the time you've done your day job, got home and cooked and cleaned, checked the internet etc the day is nearly over! Wish I was a guy sometimes, atleast I could try and get out of the cooking and cleaning then!
