  7. This one will be a stunner pal! You're more than welcome, you have sent a lot my way as well, my collection has grown from a few species to a collection that takes up a couple of windowsills now! A massive thank you to you too! Look forward to seeing this in the person next year! Cheers Mark
  8. That's a bit of a worry! Thanks for highlighting this as I was totally unaware about it. Many thanks Mark
  9. You can contact shropshire sarracenia on Facebook Mark
  10. Hi there, I can attest to your growing skills! I had tried helis a couple of times in the past from a uk nursery and every time the helicopter quickly died! I then didn't try again for years, when I saw a post from you selling some helis and u quelchii so grabbed the quelchii first, this continued growing on a windowsill for me with no acclimatisation, so I decided to try minor ayaun tepui and a pulchella, both these have grown leaps and bounds since I got them last year, I know have 12 or more helis. I'm so glad I gave then a try again with your plants! Cheers for sharing you photos! Beat regard Mark
  11. Thank you very much simone91, do you know the parentage of this hybrid? Mark
  12. Will attendees of the conference have access to the full video of lectures, I missed a couple of lectures and would love to be able to watch the other lectures again as well. Must say it was a great conference, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Cheers Mark
  13. Stunning plants and photos, thanks for sharing them! Love the sarrs being on the ground nice to see them from above, looks more natural! which you lose when on benches! Cheers pal Mark
  14. Hi got a message back from Mike about the past few mix, Hi Mark, great to hear from you. The peat free mix is a great success. The mix is milled pine bark 0-5mm (growbark pine) , Cornish grit derived from granite and perlite. All in equal measures. Good growing! Best regards, Mike Mark
  15. I did think carniflora did other pings, many thanks for confirming that for me, Marcel! Now I just need a ping expert to id it, if possible. Cheers Mark
  16. Cheers for the reply Goreneko, I'll message my friend just to make sure my memory is correct. I'm pretty sure carniflora sell other pings or used to? I've found on Google a grow list that has p agnata (carniflora) among other results for other carniflora pings. Mark
  17. Wow, that's going to be some repot! Can't wait for the Scottish branch open day at your place next year! We'll most likely meet up in December for a Christmas meal/night out, will let you know ASAP. Never used a peat free mix with sarracenia before so can't add anything about that, but I'm waiting on a message for some info for you. Cheers Mark
  18. Hi, I recently bought a no id ping from a friend of mine, the only info he had was that it was purchased from carniflora this year. I wonder if anyone would be able to id this plant for me? Sorry for the crappy photos, having to use a old Samsung s3! Cheers Mark
  19. The bark is from a company called melcourt, here's a link to there website, the cornish grit I'm not sure about, but as it's just weathered granite that has broken down, I know it's used for bonsai too! Hope this helps a bit. I was trying to think of the word for broken down granite and it's illuviated cornish granite grit. Cheers Mark
  20. Really like the lowii x campanulata, really well grown too! Many thanks for sharing these well grown and great photography! Mark
  21. That's great you like them! I'm happy I inspired you to have a go! My first nep was a x ventrata too, it must be nearly 6 foot now. I could sort you out with some alpina for just the postage if you like? Mark
  22. Hi danl82, I'm sorry for cluttering your post, let me know and I'll delete the photos. Mark
  23. Welcome to cpuk, yes there's a wealth of info here and members couldn't be more helpful! Best regards Mark
  24. Thank youvery much dieball! Not really sure about humidity my temp humidity meter died last year, I do remember that humidity would drop to 30%/40% at least when the sun is shining thru the windows in summer but with a humidity boost everyday when I have a bath, up to 90%. I think the average is about 60%? I will have to get a new temp humid meter just to check. He's a few photos of my windowsills that face South East Last but not least u humboldtii that was kindly given to me from funtofunky, cheers pal! Mark
