  1. Sarracenia don't need shade from the UK sun, but you can wilt them from very high temps so make sure that the greenhouse is well ventilated in hot weather , open door, plenty of roof vents etc

    Thanks Stephen. I had a feeling that was the case. I have an automatic roof vent and leave the door open when the weather's OK when at work. Think I'll remove the shading especially with the overcast skies we've been having this week.



  2. Hi,

    I've recently returned to collecting CPs and this time procured a greenhouse for the purpose. A month or so ago finding the interior very hot and the sun very bright and fearing the plants would get scorched I installed some greenhouse shading I bought from B&Q. In people's experience is this really necessary or will the CPs thrive on the sunlight? I live in the East Midlands and am mostly growing sarracenias.

    Many thanks,


  3. Hello everyone. Just joined CPUK yesterday as I've started collecting again after a break of about 10 years. It's good to see so many sources of plants now - I can only remember Marston Exotics from all those years ago.
