  1. Hello,

     

    I know I don't post on this forum very often but, since I recently bought some exciting new nepenthes, I thought I would show you all. There's nothing as exciting as getting plants in the post, right?
     

    Anyway, I made a little video about it. So it's here, if anyone wants a look. Don't you just love spring :) ... :give_heart:

  2. Hello,

     

    I think the last time I posted on this forum was six years ago, when one kind soul sent me some baby Amorphophallus konjac corms, for the price of the postage.

    They have worked well, although some years the corms split, undoing a year or two of growing :(

    Anyway, I think, at long last, I have an Amorphophallus konjac that is flowering size. Here is a video about potting it up and some care tips which I have gleaned over the last six years...

  4. ?? If its your third winter and they are still alive why change to a different strategy. Theres a saying 'dont fix it if it isnt broken'.

    I really don't need lectures, thank you very much.

    I asked for information specifically on the fridge method, not for your philosophy on life!

  5. Thanks, Steve, a great help.

    Mantrid, this is my 3rd winter with Sarracenia. I am not prepared to invest in a parrafin heater that is why I am asking about the fridge method. Thanks for your input but I have all the information I need now.


  6. If you are getting temps as low as -2 and they are presumably outside exposed to it why would you want to use the fridge method? Just leave them where they are.

    Fridge method is generally used by people in tropical regions or people who cant give their plants a winter temp of around 10C or less.

    We are getting -2 now. It was -17 last year in the greenhouse.
