    Hi Gary and welcome to the forum. Ask away. You know you have one of the best nurseries at Fair Oak near Eastleigh?
  10. By all means let them flower, especially if you've not seen the flowers before. If you don't want your plants to waste energy making seed then cut the flowers after petal fall, which is what I'll be doing with most of mine.
  11. Hi Red welcome to the forum.

    Saying Hi

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    Hi Everyone

    Hi Justin, welcome to the forum.
  15. Looks like SFA04 to me. So, Sarracenia flava var. atropurpurea of some kind. Nothing on his website I can see.
  16. Grower's initials usually. See the bottom of the deconfusifier introduction page.
  17. Very nice. Looks like there's just room for another one beside it
  18. These 2 sites may be of use to you: the original Don Schnell article on Sarracenia flava varieties, and Barry Rice's CP FAQ (well the sarracenia part, anyway).
  19. Remember sarracenia seeds need the cold weather for stratification. Like ada I plant my sarracenia seeds at New Year in a cold greenhouse and don't expect anything for 3 or 4 months.
  20. I think HC carnivorous plants, Hampshire and P-J plants (other nurseries are available) all sell potted plants, so you'd be safe with any of these. There's no advantage to bare rooted plants, except maybe cost of postage, but there shouldn't be a problem with them. I'll be getting some in the post soon, the Italian postal system willing! Should make clear that I'm mainly talking about sarracenia here. I wouldn't buy drosera, for instance, at this time of year unless the plant was already potted.
  21. If your pinguicula is of the tropical kind then don't put it outside in a g/h. Keep it warm on a windowsill indoors. Sarracenia can be repotted this time of year with no harm but as already been said you'll not see much growth for a month or 2. If they're coming from reputable sellers they'll already be acclimatised to the cold weather so can go straight into the g/h once potted.
  22. Hi and welcome to the forum.
  23. I believe insektenfang plants were (maybe still) grown in poly-tunnels and I always found their colour claims optimistic , so not sure you'll get the darkness you're looking for.
  24. Give them a good soaking and then let the pots drain off so the compost is damp. Standing in a few mm of water won't hurt this time of year. Either leave the pitchers on or cut them off - there'll be new ones in the spring anyhow..
  25. I'll let you know when I put my list out.
