  1. I've just looked up Spotless. I have two near me. I take it you can sign up for personal use as it's asking for a company name when registering.
  2. That's a little more like what I'm after T. I like that
  3. I thought not about the Brittas filter but thought to ask. I'll have a look at the RO option then. I thought they had to be plumbed in and became part of the furniture in the kitchen. Anything like that I stay away from but if it's an easy option, I'll look more in to it. Thanks Magnus.
  4. Living in a flat, my only option is to buy de-ionised. I'm renting so a reverse osmosis water filter isn't doable but it's a question on standard filter water like a Brittas filter for example. Can the water from a filtered jug be used or best not to?
  5. It's trying to get as far away as possible from the main plant Thanks and I will keep a close eye on it.
  6. Probably too early to tell unless someone does know but I do like surprises (nice ones) growing in the pot. This is in my D. Slackii pot.
  7. Welcome to the forum Rorcaid
  8. Has anyone used this company for their CP's?
  9. Thanks Guy. Looking for more of an individual stand to sit on the current stand I have. I will keep looking for the one
  10. I'm after some idea's on how to raise my Neps but not by hanging baskets. Even some kind of floor stand that could potentially hold 4 max but as you can see from my effort, it's looks rather naff.
  11. Good to know. I'm planning on purchasing a scorpioides but I'm in a flat so can only grow indoors.
  12. Great pics. I'm toying with getting a Drosera scorpioides.
  13. I've noticed another plant with Utric leaves. Saves me buying the plant. I'd rather sow seed than dig a small chunk out.
  14. Hi Ashii. Picked up a Wesser last week so hope to do leaf cuttings in the future
  15. Thanks Kisscool. Maybe I'll be able to dig them out at some point to pot up in it's own pot.
  16. Hi, Got some plants today and these are in one of my pots. The plant is D Esterhuyseniae x Slackii but I'm pretty sure these are old flowers of that plant.
  17. I love cycling but not when it's either raining or windy, which is most of Winter and Summer hasn't been amazing either. I bought a smart trainer back in Feb and love using it for indoor racing and general racing with a club. Just wondered if anyone else uses Zwift?
  18. After a few years away from the CP game, I'll have the grand total of 12 plants soon I think that will be it as I really am cramming everything in to a small place but I'll make the room. As I'm in a second floor flat in London, I do catch the odd fly to freeze briefly before feeding. Thankfully we don't get too much insect action here so when I do see a fly enter the flat, I give chase with my cup and card
  19. Nice set up Guy. If only I had the room but I'm in a flat so I can't venture too far with plants.
  20. I should add that I currently have N Ventrata long tom and a Pinguicula Guatemala Incoming this week are - Pinguicula agnata P.cyclosecta P . x Tina P. x Wesser That is how I'm watering those. Other pings or neps may require different ways to water in terms of sitting in water etc.
  21. For the Drosera Aliciae, sit in water until the colder months and then keep damp. My Nep and Ping(s) I don't sit in water. My pings are small so I do water gently from above to the side of the post but once the leaves are too big to do so, for now I'll sit in water until the pot feels heavy and then pour the water away for use later in a container. Nep I do water from the top. I can do this twice a week at the moment, again feeling if the pot is lighter. Another option to keep your plants damp which I'm looking into is this - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Moisture-Matting-Green-Metre-Capillary/dp/B08SKJV1RN/ref=pd_bxgy_img_2/260-0729130-3863108?pd_rd_w=qhFHx&pf_rd_p=c7ea61ca-7168-47e3-9c8b-d84748f5b23c&pf_rd_r=GHKF4BHYM18GKJ1APQXZ&pd_rd_r=6b9049d0-66f1-499c-ab81-af77c68d707e&pd_rd_wg=iAd38&pd_rd_i=B08SKJV1RN&psc=1
  22. Drosera Aliciae sounds good on a south facing windowsill. I only have the one ping but will buy four more this week. I keep the one I have by a shader window and so far so good but would be good to know if south is fine. The rest will join it. The Nep may need more sun but I'll let the experts say so. Mine is also south but the sun is higher so doesn't get the full blast. I've never misted and have not had issues with my Nentrata long tom so far or in the past.
  23. Thanks both. I've had those in the past but in a greenhouse. Probably not the Binata but the other suggestion would work. I was looking also at a Drosera spatulata Sundew VFT I thought would need a harsher dormancy but having a read about them, a cold place indoors over winter will do. May go down that road after all
