  1. Meadowview is currently working on clearing their newest bog, Wilson Track. They purchased the lands year ago but just recently they have had time and funds to work on it. Phil Sheridan and Mike Hammond are working so hard to get the bog cleared before summer hits and it will be miserble to work in 41Ctemperatures. They are currently trying to raise money, about 2000 dollars to acquire a Power Wagon to ease the physical labor when transferring the core wood out from the property. The bog will be introduced loads, if not hundreads of Sarracenia purpurea and D. rotundifolia etc. It will be
  2. The plant in the photo looks fine to me but yes, it's always easier to help if you have a current photo of your plant
  3. Hiya Guys! I'm here to start this topic about questioning possibility of Meadowview Biological Research Station (or MBRS in short) being able to ship plants rfrom U.S to Europe in future, maybe next year! If you have not heard about Meadowview before: http://www.pitcherplant.org/ Meadowview is a non-profit501(c)(3) organization dedicated to preserving and restoring rare wetland plants, habitats and associated ecosystems on the coastal plain of Maryland and Virginia. Our particular area of specialization is an endangered habitat known as pitcher plant bogs or seepage wetla
  4. Ok! I don't remember that part but that's what I was actually thinking - it's a private thing and shouldn't be distributed . Thanks Marcel!
  5. Hi folks. I've got a question in my mind, I'm about to publish a carnivorous plant book in Finnish and I've got a photo taken from 2016 ICPS Conference that I'd like to add in my book. Its a photo taken of an old plant speciment that was displayed at Kew's private plant museum, or how should I describe ithat place.. Oh well I was just thinking is it legal to publish a photo from their collection in my "commercial" book. I know the photo is mine, but the collection was private and also when it comes to earning some little money with this book of mine. What are your thoughts? I
  6. I bought my 100L for 60€.. Oh well I guess that was better than pay 10€ for 5 litres.I dislike how expensive all the horticultural things are here.
  7. Tervetuloa tänne foorumille! Oletko liittynyt myös lihansyöjäkasvit - facebook ryhmään? :-)
  8. Very nice vid! Did you just plant your gemmae straight on top of coarse sand?
  9. My plants are already been put to dormant by now. However for me February is still too early and actually thats the coldest winter month for us so I always prolong their dormancy untill late March or early April. Its better to give then somehow a bit too long dormancy than introduce them to too low light levels and suprising freezes...
  10. Wow what great photos! I really enjoyed watching 'em! Thanks for sharing! Thay sort of look like being take from Finland! However our trees and scrubs have almost entirely dropped their fall coloured leaves because winter is so clooose..
  11. Yep I did add pine needles around the plants and the plants are seperated from the soil with bubble plastic. I guess its interesting to see how they do since they aren't submerged in peat like bogs but in pine needles. However I added a thin layer of peat under the pots. How about watering? I havent watered them for like a week since temperatures have been quite low but not freezing as I think they won't dry out in those chilly conditions. Or should I water them before I put the last layer of pine needles? Do they have to be wet when experiencing " a natural dormancy" in
  12. Heh. I've got too many temperate plants to put on out basement and I have a highland tank tank that heats the basement quite a lot. I cant add any more light sources there or it will get too warm there. I've got a collection of my plants in the pit now and we'll see if they survive!
  13. Hiya! I've always been sorta innovative with things and especially with my hobbies. This winter I'm going to try to overwinter my plants on the ground - at least a part of it. The reason is that winter in Finland is very long and verycold. We just had our first frosty night, about -2,5c and things are about to get frozen soon. Our winter or should I say "its freezing at some point during the day' period takes place from late October to late March here in south of Finland. We go down to -30c every winter so there's no way I could leave my plants outside - they'll die for sure!. For th

  15. Nice! Does D.madagascariensis survive there throught winter or will you dig it up later in season?
  16. Very stunning photos! Thanks for sharing! :-)
  17. How do I know in which tour group I am? There are herbarium and library tour and glasshouse tours that are divided into groups that are held on different days. Or can I pick the group?
  18. One sarr of mine is making a flower stalk.. However now its too cold outside (-10C) so I had to move them to cellar again.
  19. Same warmth thing here in Finland. We are experiencing very warm days atm atm. We also measured a couple of days ago the highest December temperature in finnish history which is 11.8C Mentioning we usually have average temps from 0 to -5C this time of the year.
