  1. Exactly. I know I would be upset if I had to liquidate my collection.
  2. Not necessarily. He says "1 of my greenhouses being stolen ".
  3. Thanks for the help guys. I gave them a good blast with the bug clear gun which i used on my vfts previously and the problem seems to have cleared up. Fingers crossed they dont come back!
  4. One of my Heliamphora and a Cephalotus has a red spider mite problem. It's just something I've noticed this morning and the damaged isn't widespread so far. Is there anything that's safe to use on Heliamphora and Cephalotus which will kill the mites? I've used the bug clear gun on VFTs in the past. Will that work without damaging the plants too much? Thank you,
  5. Yes, I noted that in the cinema. Best thing about that film :)
  6. Bonsai growers use pumice. You could try these people Even if they don't have nay pumice, I suspect they can point you in the right direction.
  7. No I don't think so. If it is, it's certainly not to the same extent as Chelsea is. I will post some pictures of the HCP and HCCP stands over the weekend. Here are a few pictures I took at last year's show which might be of interest:
  8. I don't know where abouts in Essex you are based, but there's an aquarium shop near Thurrock that sells RO water at 10p/litre (if I remember correctly).
  9. Heterodoxa x ionasii--I suspect you'll get quite a few recommendations for this one. I have one growing happily on a south facing windowsill.
  10. Hi Mike, I noticed something similar to you--I sowed some of Stephen's Cephalotus seeds in September 2011. Half of them I put outside in a growhouse and the other half I put in my [warm] terrarium. In December, the ones in the terrarium had started to germinate. I then brought in the ones from outside as it was getting quite cold (as in below freezing) and they also started to germinate. While I note this is a small sample size, I won't bother stratifying any Cephalotus seeds in the future.
  11. Hi, I have a Heliamphora which is growing very nicely on my window sill. The roots are growing out of the bottom of the pot. The exposed portions are about 2 inches long. The tray in which it sits usually has some water in it or is at least damp. Do I need to repot it? At what point should I repot it? Thanks
  12. Hi Gary, They almost all have their succulent leaves or are in their winter forms now. They sit on a west facing windowsill but it looks out to the neighbour's house so that blocks out a good chunk of direct sun. There's no extra light other than when someone leaves the landing light on but I don't suppose that does too much for them.
