    Excellent thank you. That is quite an extensive list. Next question is. I assume the numbers are donated to the clones available in cultivation. What do the letters stand for?

    Grower's initials usually. See the bottom of the deconfusifier introduction page.

    Do you reckon it would be safer to purchase them now if they are bare root plants?

    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.

  3. 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.

    Hi linux thanks for answer

    This is my last purchase, M18 :tu:

    For the moment I have these clones

    Sarracenia minor
    S.M01 minor  -- var. okefenokeensis
    S.M02 minor  -- var. okefenokeensis, Okefenokee Giant, North East. (M16,MK) 
    S.M03 minor  -- var. okefenokeensis, Giant ex. Weilbrenner, extremely tall and robust plant. (Klein) 
    S.M04 minor  -- var. okefenokeensis, Okefenokee - north, GA (=S6L) M24A (M.Srba)
    S.M05 minor  -- var. okefenokeensis, Okefenokee Giant, Clone reputed to reach 4ft, Alastair Culham, Reading University, (M18 MK)  

    But I want to grow up my minor list

    And that's not so easy to find subject of even informations on the clones, compare to more common plants by quantity in the collection


    A lot of S. minor listed here of course (with some photos).

  5. You can see details set out by the government here. The immediate problem would be if we leave with a "No-deal". It says "the UK would be treated as a third country and would lose access to the EU plant passport regime" and "the UK would become a third country, and would need to meet EU third country import requirements to export controlled plants and plant products to the EU". However, for imports they say this: "To deliver a smooth transition when we leave the EU, in a ‘no deal’ scenario the Government has decided that the majority of plants and plant products are low-risk and should continue to enter the UK from the EU freely, as they do now." So, we're alright :wink: Just need EU countries to be reasonable now.
