  1. Some Bonsai growers in the UK use tesco low dust cat litter instead of the more expensive akadama and other clay products. Mark
  2. I'm using tesco low dust cat litter in ping mixes as well as 100%for pings and they love it! Going to try a 1 peat 1 cat litter 1 course quartz sand for my nepenthes Attenboroughii. Mark
  3. Hi Nigel, cheers for the heads up. I'll definitely let you know once i find a source, bonsai tree specialists usually have a lot of different rock and clay products, that's where I've sourced pumice, other volcanic rock and moler in different grades, here's the one I'm going to use soon http://www.kaizenbonsai.com/shop/bonsai-soil/bonsai-growing-media-straights Even IKEA has pumice now! I really do love some nice aggregates! Mark
  4. Funnily enough I've looking for laterite as well, all I've found at the moment is from aquarium shops and not really in large amounts, here's a link to API website with the product, they have a find stockist feature. http://www.apifishcare.co.uk/product.php?p=details&id=113#.WMgYsd-nzqA Mark
  5. Thanks for correcting my mistake Dennis! Best regards Mark
  6. I think his nep collection was donated to Chester zoos national collection Mark
  7. I personally use the tesco cat litter for pings at the moment, but have no experience with it in a ceph mix.

  10. Do you have any photos of your setup of possible, I've just bought one of the five light LEDs from IKEA along with the tray and light holder, as a wee experiment with some of my plants, windowsills are beyond bursting point now, with the colour on that ceph I hope they put out enough light for helis to?

  14. Have the palacaea flowers opened yet, if so can you confirm that they smell of coconut? Cheers Mark
  15. Thank you very much for the info and comparison photos, both are very nice but especially like the colour on the Chimanta! Will be interesting to see what Pulchella Chimanta small form will look like this year now it is fully settled into my conditions, will have to wait for the stronger light. Really love following this thread, cheers for all the hard work! Best regards Mark
  16. That is one small flowering specimen! I have a couple of small pulchellas, and a load more Pulchella clones, mostly from amuri tepuis. Could I ask where you purchased this very small pulchella[emoji3] Mark
