  1. If it is just for Sarracenia I'd go for glass.
  2. Zone 8A should be fine for your plants to go in dormancy. Zone 8A has plenty of carnivorous plants such as Sarracenia and Dionaea naturally occurring. If I'm not mistaken there is even Sarracenia alata in Texas in either 8B or 9A. Temperature is not the only factor for plants to go in dormancy but there is also the aspect of photoperiod (daylength). Kind regards, Killian
  3. BLACK FRIDAY - CYBER MONDAY All orders between now to 30/11 will receive a free Sarracenia regardless of order amount and 2 named Sarracenia when the order amount exceeds €50. Get them before Brexit ;) www.vleesetendeplantshop.be
  4. Update on the webshop today, likely the last one before winter. As always some are very limited available. www.vleesetendeplantshop.be
  5. Update in the Sarracenia purpurea category: https://www.vleesetendeplantshop.be/index.aspx?pageid=2388760&dl=231327 (plus also some leuco and alata added). In other news I also have some nice seedgrown plants: Seedgrown individuals from Foley, Alabama. I believe I am the first to offer these. A nice cross by Miroslav Srba: MKA22 x MKA28 Killian
  6. We sell mainly Sarracenia and other winterhardy carnivorous plants at https://www.vleesetendeplantshop.be. The webshop was originally only in Dutch but now it is also available in English and German! This way the entire website should be easy to navigate. The entire order process is thus available in Dutch, German and English. Although some texts are still in Dutch such as care sheets. French is still a work in progress. I am based in Belgium (company number 0676.997.939) and I ship within the EU with track&trace. Therefore I guarantee healthy arrival of plants. All Sarrac
  7. I don't think araflora supplies wholesale plants. The assortment of most wholesale nurseries is pretty much the same with Carniflora having a rather big assortment, some wholesale suppliers that might export to the UK: Carniflora as mentioned: http://carniflora.nl/assortiment/index.html Stricker plants: https://www.floraxchange.nl/Account/Kweker/230/Stricker#catalogus Cresco: https://www.floraxchange.nl/Account/Kweker/1510/Cresco-Carnivora#catalogus Lammehave: http://www.lammehave.dk/sarracenia/ It also seems that Corn. Bak. is now selling a larger variant of venus

  9. I think Mike King used to use guinea pig droppings for purpureas. I'm sure that he has some info on this in some of his youtube videos.
  10. Nice pictures Koen, good to see more people from Belgium here. Where do you live?
  11. I have found these traps at Carni Flora but they are not stable usually.
  12. The second one is really nice, would love to have one.
  13. Wow, that's a lot. Here it is €12 for 100l if you know where to get it.
  14. Not pointless at all, atleast people are warned now and will not fall for it. Anyway a simple search on the forum could've answered the question:
  15. Bayer Provado, which is the same as Calypso in Europe, is safe to use on most CP's. But I'd still advice to test it out first using only small amounts. Aphids are one of the easier pests to get rid off, should take about 24hrs.
  16. As far as I know they have a winter break.
  17. I don't really think Christian is trying to give it a different name, he is just putting the name of the grower where he got this from as pretty much everyone does with a growlist. If i buy a C. follicularis from christian I will label it as: C. follicularis (Christian Klein). If you put something in parenthes it does not mean you are giving a new name. So why do you see this as giving a new name? By the way, if I look at some peoples growlist I see things such as: C. follicularis 'Location A'. Why are those people giving a location clone a cultivar name?
  18. There are some sarracenia that peak early such as oreophila and flava. Pure oreophila are not really growing anymore during summer for example. And there are also some sarracenia that have their peak late summer/autumn such as leucophylla. This is the reason why carniflora produces hybrids that are the result of crossing late season growers with early season growers.
  19. It was a great open day, really impressed by Mike's collection and great to meet some new people. To Mike and his family: thank you very much for the hospitality. I have taken a lot of pictures which I will upload during the week when I'm back home. I'm still at the airport :)
