  1. If it's the same with Brocchinia they can just be divided if they are big enough
  2. Keith Wilson has an open day which is always very rewarding to visit Other than him and Gert's there aren't many proffesional growers you can visit. Carniflora is huge but not open to the public. In Belgium you have Killian and the EEE. So far the events that are known in the dutch ''Vleesetende Planten'' group which right now is the most active carnivorous plant organisation in the Netherlands are these: Saturday, 28 March 2020 10:00 Open Days Herman Geers Laag Boskoop 104, 2771 GZ Boskoop, Nederland Sunday, 5 April 2020 10:00 Meeting Germa club in Bonn Meckenheimer Allee 169, 53115 Bonn, Deutschland Monday, 1 June 2020 11:00 Excotic plantmarket Haps Kerkstraat, 5443 AB Haps, Nederland Saturday, 6 June 2020 10:00 Carnivorous plants day at Bandus Bandus bamboekwekerij - Hummelo in Hummelo En Keppel, Gelderland, Netherlands Saturday, 27 June 2020 10:00 EEE 2020 Gent HoGent Campus Ledeganck in Gent, Belgium Sunday, 5 July 2020 10:00 Open Day Killian Dupont Morrenweg 28, 3080 Vossem, Belgiƫ 10:00 Carnivorous plants day Killian Dupont Tervuren Saturday, 11 July 2020 13:00 Open Days Keith Wilson Bruggen 46, 5243 RB Rosmalen, Nederland Saturday, 5 September 2020 10:00 Plantloversday Botanical garden Utrecht Botanische Tuinen Universiteit Utrecht in Utrecht Saturday, 3 October 2020 09:00 Growersday Esveld Rijneveld 72 Boskoop I know that the dutch organisation Carnivora has an event in the Hortus in Leiden on 9 may, and events in Amsterdam, Delft and Utrecht (2x) but those dates are unknown. Carnivora is not as active as they used to be. But in general, during half june till half august allot of people are on summer holiday so the events are rare
  3. I can't really remember where I read that, but something comparable was written in The Savage Garden: ''Some species of pings also have the power of movement. This is most often seen in species from temperate climates; it is almost entirely lacking in tropical forms. Over a period of a day or so, after the capture of substantial-size prey, the margins of the leaf, already upturned, may curve inward or over the precious food. This has nothing to do with capture but is believed to be helpful in preventing the digestive fluids from drooling off the leaf. Another possible explanation is that it helps prevent the victims from being washed away by the rain. Many butterworts can even ''dish'' their leaves under prey, giving their juices a convenient place to pool.'' gives another explanation though: ''For the most part, there is no motion in the leaves. However, the leaves do often dimple slightly underneath captured prey, possibly to create a little pool of fluid to aid in digestion. Also, and especially on temperate species, the leaves roll up on the edges. A few theories have been proposed to explain this, and perhaps two of the most intriguing are that the leaves may be curling up to keep marauding ants from stealing the captured prey, or to create a kind of tubelike structure along the edges of the leaves so that capillary action spreads the nutrient-rich bug juices over a larger amount of leaf area, enhancing nutrient absorption.'' I guess science still isn't sure why they do this
  4. Very late, but if I remember correctly they do it to prevent prey from being flushed away when it rains
  5. Hello, My Brocchinia recuta is almost flowering. Is it possible to get seeds from 1 single plant and how am I supposed to do that? I have read a lot of different topics but they are all saying something else. grtz, blaasjeskruid18
  6. I'm 14, 30 august I will be 15. The dutch forum has a poll, maybe a good idea to do that here as well?
  7. Gert is a very kindly man, orders from him are always healthy. He gives you bonus plants or discount if you gonna order from him. And he has a high reputation he wants to keep high ;) .
  8. I agree, You are gonna get exited by the pictures that others made.
  9. The weather was very cold and rainy here, but today it was suddenly very warm and sunny. The roots are growing out of the pot, so yeah... anyway, thanks.
  10. Hi all, My Brocchinia reducta needs to be repot. Do you have some advise for it? (for example: is it a good time for repotting or must I wait?) or just repot it as a normal carnivorous plant. I wanna put him into 50 : 50 Peat Perlite. thnx, blaasjeskruid18
  11. It was raining here now. I think for 4 hours. I have a lot of water now. The sun can shine!
