  3. Hi Everyone, Most of you will know that my open day is happening very soon on October the 19th. The leucos and other autumn peaking Sarracenia are looking great right now. As usual, food and refreshments are provided and please bring plants for sale and swap. I will be dividing plants to order and have quite a few plants in the sales greenhouse. Looking forward to seeing you.

  10. Hi Stu, The ones in the sphagnum are unnumbered clones. They were all originally from seed from the Sandy Creek site.
  11. Don't suppose you can manage a brunch for 4 hungry travelers at around 12? ;-D
  12. It's too early to say, but when I was in the Okefenokee Swamp, the best minors were in the water too.
  13. Thanks very much for your kind comments. The psitts are sat in around 80 mm of water and the tray is 100 mm deep. They are indeed in just water and sphagnum.
