  1. Even if they are the commonest carnivorous plants it's always nice to see them in the wild. Theorically (for what i know) is forbidden to collect plants, seeds and parts of plants in the wild. I don't know if in the UK exist a specific authority for these matter as here in Italy.
  2. Great result! I too hope that the seeds i got from you will be so vigorous.

    Hi guys could you help with the id of this plant? I'm asking for a friend
  6. Hi Platty, i'm not a pings expert but i kept a P. elizabethiae in pure lava (crushed) rock and it was fine. Here in Italy many growers use this substrate or the tufa brick. With the lava rock there will not any issue with fungus gnat larvae

    Hi and thanks Nepenthesman! Yes after a fast research that plant should be a Lathyrus odoratus, a pea plant. It is always good to learn something new!!

    Hi guys! i've found these last or a couple of years ago, if are orchids someone knows what kind? Thanks!
  9. Hi Argo, i too think you should check for larvae. They thrive in peat mix and can be very dangerous. They ate my very first pings years ago, no issue with pure lava rock (lapillo frantumato con una mazzetta).
  10. Really thanks for sharing these photos!!

    about D. linearis

    Ciao Argo! Purtroppo la pianta e' morta causa la botrite, ma riprovero' in futuro. Varie linearis crescono in terreni alcalini, come quella che avevo, ma chi me l'ha venduta (membro del forum) e un membro del forum mi hanno consigliato di usare la torba, io usavo torba-perlite-pomice-quarzo in parti uguali, non mi piacciono i mix troppo compatti. Hi Argo, the plant died a cause of botrytis. Some linearis (like mine) grows in alkaline soil, but the seller (forum member) and a forum member too recommended me of using peat, so my mixture was peat-perlite-pumice-quarz sand in equal parts, i like open media.
