  2. Years ago, there were loads of cactus nurseries up and down the UK that sold Lithops. I have recently decided to start growing them again, but i'm finding it very difficult indeed to find anyone in the Uk that has a decent selection for sale. Abbey Brook Cacti in Matlock sys it holds the National Collection - I went up there the other day and the place is falling to bits, and there were only about ten different species of Lithops on offer. Southfield Nurseries in Bourne also used to sell Lithops, but theres no mention of them at all on their website?

    Whats going on?

  3. Can anyone tell me of the contents and layout of the two books below are pretty much the same. The reason I ask is because I had both books at one point but for some reason cannot find the second book listed below. I wonder if I got rid of it because it was the same inside - just a different title used?

    1) Growing Carnivorous Plants by Barry Rice

    2) The Complete Growers Guide To Carnivorous Plants by Barry Rice

     

    Cheers

     

  4. I have a few Sarracenia that have rather unfortunately got a bad dose of mealy bug in the roots. Years ago I grew cacti and the best way to treat root mealy bugs on cactiwas to submerge the roots into a bowl of methylated spirits, let them dry and then re-pot. Is this treatment safe to use on Sarracenias?

     

    If not, what is the best way to treat this?
