    I think the plant on the left is a young D. abberans. What is the plant on the right with the flower spike? Can any one help?

    Lava rock grit in soil mix

    Hi everyone, Going to split and pot up some Mexican pings soon and was wondering if anyone uses lava rock grit in their mix and if so where do you get it from? I don't need much. 1 litre would do it. Thanks

    When to pot up Saurmatum

    Thanks for your help you two. I'll pot it up maybe in a week or two then and stick it in the greenhouse so that it is protected from any frost.

    When to pot up Saurmatum

    Hi everyone, I have a Sauromatun venosum tuber and was wondering when I should pot it up in the greenhouse. It has started to grow. About 2 to 3 inches. Thanks

    When to pot up Saurmatum

    Thanks Rob. I'll pot it up and pop it in the greenhouse for now, followed by some Arisaema and Amophophallus in march. Not grown aroid before so it's a little experiment this year.

    When to pot up Saurmatum

    It's in a cool cupboard in the kitchen at the moment at about 10 -15 degrees. My greenhouse is fluctuating from 4 - 14 degrees, night- day at the moment. The tuber is a recent purchase so it was already in dormancy when I got it.

    Sarracenia resource

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew of a website or resource that describes the differences between varieties of sarracenia such as flava var maxima and flava var flava? With diagrams or pictures, maybe a comparative table etc? Thanks

    Sarracenia resource

    Excellent thank you. That is quite an extensive list. Next question is. I assume the numbers are donated to the clones available in cultivation. What do the letters stand for?

    Thanks Martin, Certainly sorted out a few things for me.
  13. I got a Netatmo indoor and outdoor sensors for Christmas. Rather good. Temp, humidity and pressure for the greenhouse and co2, temp, noise for the indoor (We have a 3 month old, so will be good to get a long term look at the nursery) www.netatmo.com

    The smallest flowering D. serpens

    Thanks Siggi, I'll give it a feed and hope. It's the first time I've grow the species, so it is a bit of an experiment.
  18. Just thought I'd share my flowering D. serpens. I sowed the seeds a little late. Will it continue to grow after flowering? Any thoughts?

    Is this S. flava var ornata?

    The plant was sold to me as rubricorpora (during the winter, so had no pitchers). It's clearly not that. Thanks for your help.
