    Hi everyone, I'm aware of and have pubescent forms of S. alata and S. leucophylla. Are there pubescent forms of other species? Thanks
  2. All done. I had many more than I thought. Now to look forward to some mature pitchers.
  3. Ah, I did not know that. Thanks for the information. Glad I'll be doing the right thing then. Thanks Ada
  4. Hi Ada, A couple of osmocote pellets per pot. Also kept them under lights over the winter at work. They will get their first dormancy this winter. I will do the same with the seedlings I have this year from the seeds I got from you. I wont be giving them any osmocote when I pot them up. They are on their own now.
  5. I have a few pots of 1 year old sarracenias and want to split then up into individual plants and pot them on. Can I do them now? or have I missed the boat and I should have done them early spring? Thanks

    Scaphosepalum ID

    Hi, can anyone ID this Scaphosepalum. It has finally bloomed and I'm struggling to ID it. Could it be S. swertifolium? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  7. As a result of a slug or snail chewing through the scape of one of my S. alata. I decided to dissect the immature flower. I'm always amazed at how the style is adapted to prevent self pollination. I hope it is interesting a maybe useful to someone.
  8. Hi Jeff do you still grow some Styldium? Any tips on S. laricifolium and S. caricifolium?
  9. Hi everyone, Does anyone have any idea where I might be able to get some Levenhookia seed? A relation to Stylidium. Thanks Platty

    Tuberous sundew id

    Drosera rupicola ?
  12. 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?
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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?
  19. Thanks Martin, Certainly sorted out a few things for me.
  20. 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
  21. 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)
