  1. 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,

  2. 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.

  3. 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 Sarracenia are shipped bare-root with pitchers intact, in sturdy boxes, as long as you choose for a shipping option with track&trace.

     

    Shipment costs

    I have, what I believe, are pretty competitive shipping rates. For example: 

    United Kingdom or France with track&trace €14,99 

    Germany, Netherlands, Luxemburg with track&trace €9,99 

    Free shipping (with track&trace) if order amount exceeds:
    Belgium - €39,99
    NL,DE- €59,99
    FR,LUX,UK - €79,99 
    Rest of Europe - €119,99

  4. 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 flytraps: https://www.bromelia.com/producten.php?cat=20

     

    I think those are the most important companies that produce them in big quantities and might possibly export them to the UK,  there are a few others though but most don't really have other products than the ones listed here. 

  5. Carnivora FB page:

    A list of speakers we can confirm at this moment:

    Simon Poppinga - These plants suck –Biomechanics, functional morphology and diversity of bladderwort (Utricularia spp.) traps

    Laurent Taerwe - Conservation of Nepenthes in situ

    Christiaan Dietz - Carnivorous Plants in the Western Cape, South Africa

    Damien Jouen - Drosera petiolaris complex

    Michael and Caroline Schöner - echolocation by bats on Nepenthes

  6. 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?

  7. 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.
