  1. Hi, Has eneybody used coco husk for their Heliamphora before?
  2. Hi, is this ok to use for cps? Diall Lava rock 2.5kg from B and Q.
  3. It's the one that people use for their nepenthes greenhouse let's in light but keeps temperature down.
  4. Hi, Where can I buy aluminium shade netting from in the UK? Just cannot find it anywhere...
  5. I grow this lot in a unheated glasshouse all year in the uk. Binata Binata v Dichotoma 'Giant Binata 'Otaki Forks' Binata v Multifida f Extrema Capenis Dichotoma ExtremaFiliformis Regia
  6. Hi, Can someone please help me with my sarracenia this year was all repoted into fresh peat and perlite mix at 2/1 and all has flower for me,but about half of them has not sent up eney pitchers at all? All grown outside in a glasshouse year round in full sun.
  7. I was thinking of potting them in sphagnum moss, but it would cost me £££ as I have a lot of plants...
  8. Just a update on my VFT before I repot them for the summer.I use rain water for them at 10 ppm or lower and peat/ perlite mix,but I have just tested my peat with rain water and the ppm gos up to 105ppm.Could peat be my problem?
  9. I'm 100% it's not got enough light,as mine has nice red leaves all the time.
  10. I would say about 80% of my Venus flytraps do this each summer. Plus it's more the outer Edge venus fly traps what is more affected in Mid summer. I use rain water only, plus shamrock peat moss and horticultural perlite only at 50/50 mix, I have noticed the thermometer in the greenhouse has hit 47 degrees over the last few weeks, as the greenhouse is in full sun from morning till sunset.
  11. So if it's not the temperature at this time of the year,what could it be?
  12. Been checking all you said and the only thing I can see is the temperature in the greenhouse as been at 42c over the last few weeks, so with them being in black pots as well it looks like heat stress?
  13. Yes using rain water at 6ppm for all my other cp as well.
  14. Mine looks like the photo above all summer until the spring when they burst back into life. So next year I might shade the greenhouse a little over the summer months and see what happens.
  15. They are in shamrock peat moss and perlite at 50/50 mix.I only have this problem in mid summer.
  16. This is another problem I only have in summer with my venus fly traps they get smaller and smaller and less leaves till the growth comes to a stop.In Autumn and Winter they are beautiful red traps and lots of growth if someone could help me with a problem that would be great.
  17. Hi all, I have a Nepenthes growing in Highland conditions outside, but I've got this brown patches on the underside of the leaves not on the top if somebody can help me that would be great.
  18. I also have three of the Bayliss and two other cheaper ones of eBay. I find all to be good,but have to remove the cheap tube's of eBay in winter.
  19. I have three independent nurseries close to where I live that sells peat. Shamrock,clover and two other peats to. Plus a diy store that sells shamrock peat.
  20. Does anyone know if there is any big cp growers going to be at Harrogate Autumn Flower Show this year?
  21. Yes all the pitchers was removed last year.This is the only one that I have trouble with,as they get smaller and smaller then die on me.....
  22. I think it was from Ikea I think. would it be better if it was in deeper water? I will try the fertilizer thing I have nothing to loose.
  23. I got a S.psittacina about two years ago and grow fine for me,but this year its got smaller and smaller? It grows with all my other sarracenia 2" water,full sun and cold winter rest and 2.1 peat/perlite. Two years ago Now
  24. I got a N.Truncata of Matthew Soper about three years ago,but I find it to be hard to grow and slow.
