  1. Thanks for the info. Some more questions How do they connect to the mains? Is it a tap connection, or do they require something more permanent? Can they work unattended? How quickly do they work? Cheers,
  2. Hi, I've read several of the threads regarding water quality and seen good reports on reverse osmosis systems. Looking at the websites there appears to be a multitude of different types. Does anybody have any hints or recommendations? Thanks, Martin
  3. Hi Richard, Welcome. You'll find plenty of opportunity to build your collection here!
  4. 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. Cheers, Martin
  5. 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, Martin
  6. Go on, you've talked me into it! I'll be there but unfortunately not for very long. Cheers, Martin
  7. Thanks everybody. I've already bought each of the sarracenia species to get me re-started. I'm also trying seed for the first time which is a bit of a challenge but hopefully worth the effort.
  8. 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.
