  1. Hello my friends :) A few weeks ago I bought myself a 4K camcorder and a couple of macro lenses for it. This has allowed me to add some 4K videos to my carnivorous plant channel: https://www.youtube.com/carnivorouscorner I have 182 carnivorous plant videos on my channel, and the idea is to demonstrate to people just how awesome these plants are, and hopefully capture details which show just why us collectors love them so much. With the latest videos being in 4K resolution, hopefully they are among the cleanest and most crispest videos available out there. :)
  2. Hello my friends. Thank you for the kind words :) Sorry to hear about viewing difficulties with the iPad. Here's a compilation of the photos: (http://i.imgur.com/tsTd1vC.jpg)%C2'>
  3. Hi all, One of my biggest hobbies is photography and I've spent the last year taking hundreds and hundreds of photos of my 500 carnivorous plants, using my Nikon D5100 with it's standard lens and 105mm Macro lens. I've narrowed down these photo's to the 12 pics that I am most proud of, and have put them together to form a calendar for next year. I think it would be awesome for us carnivorous plant enthusiasts to have this hanging on our walls :) Here is the link for it: http://www.lulu.com/shop/robert-cornforth/carnivorous-plant-calendar-2016/calendar/product-22313038.html It also includes previews of all 12 images. Please consider checking it out. Thank you for looking :) (posting this here with permission from the admin)
  4. I was under the impression that Cobra Lily's, Sarracenia's, VFT's and Sundews all required some sort of frost protection. My understanding was that they could tolerate *some* frost, but prolonged amounts could be harmful to the plants. What is your take on it?
  5. Hmm. Little or no airflow, sure, because I've closed the doors and vents to the greenhouse in case of unexpected frost appearing. However a shortage of light shouldn't be an issue as they are not under a bench, but on the top shelf of my greenhouse.
  6. Any idea what is happening here? I've sprayed it with Provado bug killer, not sure if that will help.
  7. Thought you all might like this :) Still not entirely sure how some people are able to get them to stand up completely straight. Mine look good but slightly drunk
  8. Hi all, A couple of weeks ago, I bought half a dozen B52's from one of the larger UK online CP retailers. 5 of them are doing fine but 1 of them is not. I'm not entirely sure what is wrong though, as it gets plenty of sunlight and is situated in a couple of cm of rainwater. The container is being shared with 7 other B52's and they all seem fine. Any ideas as to what is wrong? Thanks
  9. Hi all A couple of weeks ago, I ordered half a dozen B52's from a well known online seller (don't want to mention the name in case it comes across as discrediting them). 5 of them are completely fine, but 1 of them is not. Thing is, I'm not sure what the issue is. It has plenty of sunlight and it always in a couple of cm of rainwater. It's also sharing a container with 7 other B52's which are all doing fine. Can anyone see, using these photos, what the problem could be? Thanks
  10. Nope, they are in different trays. By section's I meant as in an area of the greenhouse, as I don't keep all my sarracenia's in one spot.
  11. Hi all, Over the last few weeks, I've had a few somewhat isolated incidents with my pitcher plants. I say isolated, because I have 5 or 6 'sections' of pitcher plants and what I am writing only applies to one section. For some unknown reason, some of the traps have started to become deformed. Others have had their lids go crispy (on my largest ones as well, which worries me), and a few of them have flopped over (as you can see in the photos below). Does anyone know why? They have good sunlight, and are kept in about an inch of rainwater and are sprayed with rainwater every few days. Their colours are nice and green and there aren't any other indications of causes, from what I can see anyway. As always, any help is appreciated. Thankyou.
  12. Hmm, really? This is news to me. I've been collecting the seeds from various plants over the years, including B52, South West Giant, Red Form, Big Mouth etc. So will the seeds just grow up to be standard venus flytraps?
  13. Hi there, Does anyone know why some of these traps look like this? Infection perhaps? A few months ago, I did get a slight infection among my 'red form' traps, though submerging them in rainwater seemed to help. Could this be the sign of another infection?
