      I'll see if I can borrow my mum's camera, mines had it and my phone's is crap. I think it was the terrarium heat mat that did it, just got everything nice and warm in there :D

  2. So pleased my new H. heterodoxa is already putting out a new pitcher :)

      sad news mate, I thought I'd start off easy with a heterodoxa and see how it goes. the big trial is acclimating it room conditions though :/ on a side note I thought my Drosera regia had died off the other day- it'd been looking sickly for ages but it's re-sprouted from the root.

      good news all round then! :D I'm just waiting to see how long it takes my new rob to settle in now. should be interesting watching those pitchers develop :)

  4. Should be interesting trying my hand at growing Cephalotus Follicularis from seed. fingers crossed it works out better than my attempt at D. Spatulata :/

      aye, I know it's a long road growing cephs from seed, but If I only get one germinating I'll be over the moon! the seed is fresh as fresh can be so I can eliminate that worry at least. hope your leaf pullings strike, if they're still alive I'd take it as a good sign so far though :D thanks for the offer on the spatulata, I've kept a couple of the strongest survivors from my lot (the weedy stragglers have been euthanised) they're maybe about 3/4th of an inch? but I...

  5. 8 new sundews to add to the growlist (with a cheeky little amullaria thrown in the mix) was surpised to recieve FOUR of them as free bonus plants as an apology for a delayed parcel. Thank you Carnisana.pl!!

      I have to admit, I've been very impressed, the prices are low and the plants are very healthy (even if they look a bit battered, sundews never travel well in the post. same with pings too I find)What's do you have on the way?

      haha, got nep fever now eh? they are my personal CP faves. next on my hit list is robcantleyi. I've been pining after one for a while and they're reputed to be fairly easy to grow on a windowsill, if a little slow.

      oh and you'll like ventricosa. lovely, easy species- it should do well for you :) I have the white pitcher form and it's one of my favorites in my collection

      It's all good! I'd quite like to add raff and spectabilis to my collection but I want to grow them from seed, that way I get a far more individual plant :D

  9. So, Nepenthes Bokorensis Joins my litttle CP party, courtesy of Dicon. first "interesting" Nep Species to be added to the collection :D

      OOH! you can comment on statuses?! this is a new discovery for me :D Aye, It's probably going to be settling in for a while yet but I'll be sure and get some pics when it gets around to pitchering. got some other neps on the way too, a big spectabilis/ ventricosa cross among them- I first saW one like it at the eden project this year on holiday- I'll have to upload all the pics I took of that one too :)
