  1. Impressive, it will be interesting to see how pitcher size compares to 'Eden Black' when it's mature.
  2. I contacted Stephen about the 'Eden Black' wish list and he told me it was closed, I quess it just got too long.
  3. I have tried contacting LJ but have had no reply, I thought that Stephen may have a waiting list as he did for 'Eden Black'. Elliot
  4. Yes, I like this clone as well, although the pitchers on my plant aren't really that much bigger than typicals under the same conditions. Elliot
  5. Carl, do you know if there is a waiting list for this clone? Cheers, Elliot
  6. Here are a few pics of my "Big Boy", now starting to colour up nicely. Big Boy 01 by les-plantes-carnivores-2010, on Flickr Big Boy 02 by les-plantes-carnivores-2010, on Flickr Cheers, Elliot
  7. Each trap will normaly digest 3 or 4 insects before dying.
  8. They should catch their own food, the constant struggling of a trapped insect is necessary for the trap to seal and the digestive enzymes to be released, so you can't feed them meat or dead insects. Elliot
  9. The plant has probably been used to low light levels in the garden centre so moving it into full sun has scortched the pitchers.
  10. Most of my Sarracenia are in square 11cm pots, with a depth of 12 cm (~1.45l). I have one in a 13cm pot (~ 2.2l), will probably pot some of the others into 13cm pots when they get bigger.
  11. Probably Drosera capensis or Drosera aliciae capensis: http://rareflowers.co.uk/images/390Drosera_capensis6.jpg aliciae: http://www.aipcnet.it/Gfx/Pics/Drosera_aliciae.jpg Is it one of these? Elliot
  12. Hi Alan, hope you are happy with the plant The plant has been on a window sill, so I would definitely provide some shading if you decide to move it outside. I would try and find space in your terrarium if I were you, cephs can be very sensitive to sudden changes in conditions. Elliot
  13. Personally I quite like the moss, I don't see any reason to remove it as it does the plants no harm.
  14. I'm coming on the 4th. My exams are all finished now!
  15. Me too, it just takes a while for the full colour to develop. Update: Cephalotus follicularis - PJ Plants 02 by les-plantes-carnivores-2010, on Flickr Cephalotus follicularis - Cymru Carnivores 02 by les-plantes-carnivores-2010, on Flickr
  16. I've ordered a new bag of moorland gold, will try this when it arrives (should be tomorrow)
  17. Cheers mobile, would perlite be ok as a drainage layer? I also have some slate, would that be better?
  18. I have a spare 18 inch tank and I was wondering if it would be possible to grow cephalotus as they grow naturally, i.e. almost vertically, in the tank. For example: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/54/Cephalotus_follicularis_Hennern_3.jpg Would make an excellent display. Cheers, Elliot
  19. Just the standard mix, 1 part peat (Moorland gold) to 1 part perlite.
  20. Update: Cephalotus follicularis - PJ Plants 01 by les-plantes-carnivores-2010, on Flickr Cephalotus follicularis - Cymru Carnivores 02 by les-plantes-carnivores-2010, on Flickr Cephalotus follicularis - Cymru Carnivores 01 by les-plantes-carnivores-2010, on Flickr
  21. I sold a Cephalotus division on ebay giving a Best Offer option, I received a best offer on the 19th and accepted it yesterday. Today the buyer contacted me saying that the offer was not "binding". Has any one else had this happen to them, what should I do? Elliot
