  1. Alexis,

    Were you the owner of violetmount.com? I have 229 links in the CP Photo Finder to violetmount.com that are not working. Are those photos gone or have they been moved somewhere?

    Rather than reply by a CPUK message, would you reply to me at [email protected] ?


  2. Alexis,

    Are or were you the owner of http://www.violetmount.com ?

    I have 231 links to that site in the CP Photofinder http://cpphotofinder.com that no longer work. Before I delete all of the links, I wanted to see if they are gone or moved somewhere else.


  3. Several have posted photos http://cpphotofinder.com/nepenthes-x-burbidgeae-x-platychila-5666.html
  4. It could be that CPUK has used all of the space purchased from the ISP. An alternative is to put your photos on any number of free photo hosting sites such as photobucket, flickr, imageshack, etc. and then post the image link on this forum.
  5. Perhaps this concern is all about nothing. Get an inexpensive TDS meter and check your water. Since we receive no rain from May till November, for years I have hauled water from the neighboring town because I assumed that my well water was not suitable for CPs. The town water was 90 ppm, which I found adequate for growing CPs under my conditions. This year, I finally bought a TDS meter and discovered my well water was actually 55 ppm.
  6. http://cpphotofinder.com/dionaea-burbanks-best-2062.html http://cpphotofinder.com/dionaea-g14-rosetted-2160.html Personally, I would rather have B52: http://cpphotofinder.com/dionaea-b52-2043.html or Ginormous: http://cpphotofinder.com/dionaea-ginormous-7611.html
  7. I would take out D. Burbanks best
  8. GazCez, sorry to hear of your disappointing experiences. I have a friend that ever since he was a small child he wanted to operate a tropical fish store. He eventually rented a space in town and opened his store. He was really happy, but after a year he sold his store and quit. He said the reason he no longer enjoyed his store was that although the vast majority of his customers were great, at least once a week someone was so critical and complained that it completely ruined his joy. Dealing with the public is a challenge.

  10. I find it best to put them in a hanging planter. That way the leaves can droop without hitting the bench/ground.
  11. The illustration is on page 5 of http://www.sffaudio.com/podcasts/TheFloweringOfTheStrangeOrchidByH.G.WellsPEARSONS.pdf
  12. I just visited the Amazon link and it shows that the e-book is available and the price is US$2.99. Is there a problem accessing Amazon from Singapore? http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QXGSWLY
  13. Thank you for the information. I got your book and it is very nice.
  14. Just to inform those that have not yet found it, ICPS has updated the list of registered cultivar names http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cultivars/names.php Some of the information is missing because I have been unable to obtain the published description or official photo. If someone has access to these publications and would email a copy of a missing description to me, I will add that to the ICPS web site. Eventually Jan Schlauer, the Registrar of CP Cultivar Names, will update his CP Database http://www.omnisterra.com/bot/cp_home.cgi and the available information will become more complete.
  15. The problem is that these databases are created and maintained by volunteers and consequently become out of date until someone has the tome or motivation to bring it up to date. In the meantime, perhaps this will help. In addition to Jan's CP Database, a comprehensive list of cultivar names can be found at http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cultivars/names.php It also is out of date, but will eventually be updated. A listing of the missing registered cultivar names and description sources can be found at http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cpn/articles/CPNv42n2p71.pdf http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cpn/articles/CPNv43n1p31_32.pdf The most recent (2014) cultivar names will still be missing. In March 2015, ICPS will publish in CPN the list of cultivar names registered in 2014. The cultivar names and descriptions printed in CPN so far in 2014 are found at http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cpn/articles/CPNv43n1p23_28.pdf http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cpn/articles/CPNv43n2p74_75.pdf
  16. I believe the white flowered form is called Pinguicula grandiflora f. chionopetra (Nelson)

  18. The species description is found at http://www.sekj.org/PDF/anbf33/anbf33-029.pdf Steiger questions the validity of the taxon due to "rather poor descriptions with insufficient drawings" http://www.pinguicula.org/pages/Publications/J_Steiger_Bonn.pdf
  19. I modified the "Dracula" listing in the CP Photo Finder to make Trev's point clear and added a link to this thread. Part of my purpose in creating the CP Photo Finder was to allow people to compare photos to help verify whether their plants looked correct. There are numerous clones being grown and distributed that are not identified correctly. This results in a big mess.
