    Haenaria Radiata

    The correct name for the White Egret Flower, Fringed Orchid or Sagiso is Pecteilis radiata, so you're comparing apples and pears
  2. Use this and then forget they ever existed.
  3. I placed an order, I was invoiced quickly, I paid and received the plants in 6 days. Packaging was excellent and each plant was at least 2 sometimes 10. I couldn't possibly fault the service or the plants They're on my recommended list
  4. That's odd, I had an order from them this month
  5. It's more dependent on the age/health of the grower.
  6. The water I'm using at present has been in storage since last year in capped barrels. I've stored rainwater for several years in a sealed container and when the time came I used it straight from that container. Don't bother faffing about with the mini barrel, just use it direct from your rainwater reserves.
  7. As everyone should know, Drosera regia seedlings only starve to death if grown unnaturally in sterile conditions, indoors under lights. Grown more naturally in a greenhouse with natural light they do just fine.
  8. It will need to be below -18C (0F) then. I've had it survive that There's one Drosera rotundiflora in the pot, remove it when it's dormant and clean all medium off and re-pot in clean medium. You could probably do the same with those D. capensis seedlings as the roots will be thick enough by late autumn.
  9. That's Utricularia bisquamata a notorious pernicious weed in cp collections. DO NOT LET IT SEED
  10. You don't know what I voted, I haven't said, or did you get independent information on that too? You keep saying experts in their field. As Norman Tebbit said on Friday morning. If these "experts" knew as much as they pretend, they'd be a lot richer than they are. Anyway, that's enough, you are obviously enjoying wallowing in the pessimistic pool far too much,so I'll leave to to it
  11. Oh please stop being so negative. You can't predict what will happen, no-one can, as the situation has not been encountered before, there is no model. It really looks like you swallowed Cameron's propaganda hook line and sinker. It doesn't seem that long ago that Cameron said if he didn't get what he wanted from the EU he would lead us out. Well where were all the predictions of doom then?
  12. We were asked if we wanted to remain or leave the EU. The vote was to leave the EU, We were never asked if we wanted to be in the EU, so why was it such a surprise we didn't?
  13. These would be the same experts that have failed on oh so many occasions to predict things? And of course I'm going to believe the Politicians. I saw their lips move, that was a bad start.. No-one knows how everything will pan out, it's called negotiation. If you go into negotiations not expecting to gain anything you'll probably get the outcome you expect.
  14. Negative speculation is not reality. If anyone disagrees with the result of a democratically held referendum then they are free to leave. That is at least one way we can reduce the net migration figures that many worry about
  15. It all depends which search engine you use. Try this
  16. Oh! I see that's a good idea. I suppose you wouldn't get any new plants at all from the seed then and they wouldn't be the slightest bit genetically diverse?
  19. Sorry Yossu, I've been holding fire but I just couldn't hold it any longer
  20. Leave the inflorescences on the plants, it will not harm the plant if you are capable of growing the plants correctly. These are perennial flowering plants and have been doing so for millennia, if it harmed them they'd have died out. Don't follow advice given by people who would struggle to grow cress on blotting paper. It's a case of sheep following sheep, much the same as with Maxsea.
