  1. Still looking for a Big Mouth or Darwin, but in the meantime this one doesn't look too bad, does it?

  3. If I can find one here in France or elsewhere that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, I'd be happy to give the current one the boot.
  4. Well, in the end I plumped for a common garden centre clone. It looked in good shape and the traps had a healthy blush, so with luck they'll go redder in the sun. I would have loved Big Mouth or Darwin, and spent a lot of time looking online, but shipping was very expensive. Add the price of substrate etc and it was getting a bit excessive for a curiosity specimen. Thanks all for your help in any case.
  5. Thanks everyone. I'd better clear some windowsill space.
  6. Thanks for your suggestions. I was thinking of 'Big Mouth' in fact.
  7. Hello all This is my first time back on CPUK for years! I used to be regular poster here and had a nice nep collection (sigh). However, life events got in the way and I now find myself living abroad (France) with no space for anything larger than a VFT :) On that subject, I was just wondering whether there was any particular cultivar of VFT that would do well on a sunny windowsill? A good size (8cm or so), nice flush of red to the traps, easy, vigorous, compact ... that kind of thing. I'd like to avoid the wimpy garden centre specimens but otherwise don't know where to start. If anything can recommend a good source (perhaps even here in France?) that would be even better! Thanks in advance Sam

    Somewhat exciting discovery for me this week : my tenuis - which I thought was still getting into its stride - is about to flower. Can anyone sex it for me? Tiny upper pitcher developing
  11. I've had this problem recently, though things seem to be sorting themselves out. My neps are in a terrarium, so it certainly isn't dry air that's causing it. But a couple of plants did dry out a while ago (oops) - maybe that's it, as Dave says?
  12. That's great - thank you. I wondered whether it might be Morris.
  13. Hello all On a recently visit to Thailand, I spotted this beast hiding in the undergrowth: I meant to take a closer look to find out what it is but for some reason was distracted (it was VERY hot). Can anyone help me identify it? I'd be very grateful. (I think it must be l-h drive, if that helps.) Sam
  14. Superb plants, Dave. Many thanks for posting the photos.
  15. Hello Dave. I wasn't aware of this debate; can you by any chance remember where it took place? I can't see much (or any) ovata in the pictures I've seen.
