  1. Yep, that's what they look like So, I could be in luck.
  2. Thanks guys. I'm hoping what I've got is seed. It did seem to appear rather quickly but it looks like seed I've bought in the past. I'll sow it and see what happens. I'm more used to the months it takes to get Sarracenia seed.
  3. Hi, The question is in the title really. How long after flowering before seed is ripe and ready for sowing? Thanks,
  4. There's plenty of good advice to be had around here. Welcome.
  5. That's fantastic. How do you get glowing green pitchers like that? The baby ones on my typical clone look almost translucent compared to yours.
  6. Thought I may have got some seeds but I've found it didn't take. Anyone have better luck?
  7. Well done, but now you've got to figure what to do with all those aliciae Nice S.x catesbaei. They sure are vigorous.

    Cedric, welcome to the CPUK forum.
  9. A while back we compiled a list of most of the European CP websites here which may or may not sell cephs. I've only been keeping cephs for a while this year and the 2 I have are both on a sunny windowsill and, fingers crossed, seem to be doing OK. Regards,
  10. Doesn't the burkii have a different flower colour? Maybe I'll find out next year. Thanks for the replies.
  11. It was indeed Dan Thanks for that; it's done very well, although the flower coming this late in the year surprised me.
  12. A few pics of a large outdoor pot and S. purpurea ssp. venosa. My newly planted outdoor pot consisting of S. purpurea ssp. purpurea, S. purpurea ssp. purpurea f. heterophylla, a Darlingtonia and 2 D. rotundifolia. Hopefully should look better when the moss grows a bit. S. purpurea ssp. venosa obtained from Hampshire carnivorous plants April 2010. S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. burkii obtained from Hampshire carnivorous plants September 2010. S. purpurea ssp. venosa (I think) from B & Q May 2011. This is a vigorous grower and only cost about £4.50. It's kept in the same conditions as the venosa above so anyone have an idea why it's stayed so green?

    From the album: Sarracenia purpurea

  14. I've got 3 Siuslaw seedlings. That'll be £330 worth then.
  15. Is that Orange Fire in there Cedric? Anyway they're all gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.
  16. Thanks Peter and thez_yo. Sounds like I'm doing the right thing. I water about twice per week from the top into the tank allowing the overspill to soak away in the compost. Like thez_yo I leave a little water in the tray ATM. Cheers,
  17. Hi, Got a B. hechtioides from Gert at EEE. I've potted it in a sarracenia mix with extra perlite and placed it on a SE facing windowsill. Any suggestions on caring for it would be welcome. Especially watering, humidity, light etc. TIA,
  18. Welcome to CPUK from south Derbyshire.
  19. I'd expect a S. flava var maxima to be all green and S. flava cv 'Maxima' to look like a normal flava, albeit a robust clone.
  20. Some simple pictures from the EEE today. I seem to have missed many of the traders stands, hopefully someone a bit more thorough can fill in the gaps. Most of the marquees First stand on the right Second marquee on the right Last stand on the left Charles Darwin in attendance A BIG H. nutans
