  1. Saw a couple at a show once, passing a cp stand the guy said oh look i really like those, his wife/gf said ‘cant stand those things’ and he got dragged reluctantly away. Poor sod i thought, time for a new wife, lol.
  2. It should be the same as distilled water, never tried it but should be ok.
  3. Cost in my case is mostly lighting. If you assume about 60W of lighting for a 2-3ft terrarium, its basically 60W x 10 hours x 365 days / 1000 Wh/kWh x 0.15£. Or about 32£ per year. thats in the house, no additional heating, good for orchids, ferns, lowland nepenthes etc...
  4. The only common cp ive found struggles in high temperatures is D. aliceae.
  5. I lost some UK droseras, anglica, rotundifolia, beleziana and intermedia as they were exposed to the wind. Some of the same species survived that were frozen solid. Also some dionaes, binatas and capensis survived outside. We got to about -5 for a few days.
  6. Possibly, it could be something out of the peruvianaum/trapeziforme complex or just a different clone of peruvianum, or just old last years leaves...
  7. Heres my biggest peruvianum plant, im just getting around to adding some crushed limestone especially to the macrophyllum which has never been as good a grower as the peruvianum.
  8. Are you sure its not Adiantum raddianum? I've never seen peruvianum in a UK garden center.
  9. Whether they are lowland/intermediate highland, does not imply a genetic relationship, its purely to do with growing conditions.
  10. Whether they are lowland/intermediate highland, does not imply a genetic relationship, its purely to do with growing conditions.
  11. Well if your sure they are then they could be, some types lack he wings that most have. I’ve had hem germnate after a about 1 year after sowing, thats kept wet and in typical highland conditions.
  12. Looks like cold damage, possibly made worse by being wet but mostly cold damage. I’d give it about a 5% chance of recovery.
  13. Me too, good to see another chemic!
