  3. Hi Redsarebest and welcome to CPUK. You can get a wealth of advice from some very knowledgeable growers, some of the best in the world. Keeping CPs isnt too difficult if you just do the basics right, I'm sure you will master it quickly. Best of luck and ask anything, there's no such thing as a wrong question. Cheers Steve

  7. If they look like they did in your last picture, flushing them will soon have them back on track, repot in spring next year. cheers steve
  8. The majority of mine have been sitting outside in trays all winter, so have been frozen solid and the water levels have varied with the weather. Unless you have recently put them outside from inside somewhere, I wouldn’t worry. Cheers Steve

  10. Hi Steve and welcome. You have joined a great bunch of people with a knowledge base that will be able to answer almost anything’s no you need to know on CPs and Keith is right it becomes very addictive. cheers steve
  11. They should be fine, mineeoutside in the uk and go under 0C with the weather conditions and are fine, it’s the desiccating wind that does more damage. cheers steve
  12. Hello and welcome to the forums. cheers steve
  13. They can take some very low temps (mine have been down to minus 15 in the past) without too much detriment, however it’s frequent freeze thaw cycles that cause problems and freezing temps with desiccating winds effectively freeze drying the plant. Dryer is commonly said to be better than wet, although I have both conditions and the plants have been OK.
  14. My few local suppliers seem to have changed over to Westland in the last twelve months, presumably there is a financial reason for doing so. Knowing the previous experiences of other growers and indeed myself I asked the question of Westland and got the following reply. So so in theory all is well. Cheers steve
  15. Hi Luz and welcome to a great hobby. if you need information on anything, don't be afraid to ask, there are many knowledgable people in the forums who will be happy to help. cheers steve
