  1. Hello, as we all know N. truncata is a very widespread species and I'd be interested to know what temps you give to yours and possibly what clones they are. Also, I've heard some people had particular issues concerning watering too much their plants... what do you think?
  2. Hello there, according to you guys would it be possible to grow these two genera together? I mean at the end of the day they take more or less the temperatures, along with pygmies and tuberous droseras (a range inbetween 8C-30C let's say), although sundwes definitely prefer more stable temps on the cool side in the winter. Albeit, would there be a chance? The only thing that makes me douvbt seriously is atually humidity... i give plenty of humidity to my neps and heliaphoras with a high pressure fogger but i'm unsure this would be good for those sticky-leaved plants. Any ideas?
  3. Hello there, how do you grow your plants? Do you think it's better having them hanging or sitting on benches?
  4. Hello :) yes i suspected ventricosa too... even the texture of the pitchers is similar... still i don't know what else might be in it
  5. Hello... I bought from hampshire carnivorous plants a specimen of this https://www.hantsflytrap.com/be2985-nepenthes-pacifica-1305-p.asp N. x pacifica, a very lovely hybrid (originally from Borneo Exotics apparently, BE2985), I must say. Only thing is I have no clue what the composition is and the seller himself does not provide much information. Any idea?
  6. The fact is in that I've noticed that there are no real specialised providers in EU, and many private collections have largely mislabelled specimens
  7. Hello, has anyone of you guys ever ordered from this website http://www.droseragemmae.com/? I see it's located in the US, so I was wondering whether it's be a deal buying something from them or a risk of receiving half-dead stuff. Thanks!
  8. Hello, I wrote an email to Mr Klein using this address cklein5(at)me.com but received no answer and other people tokd me are having (or have had) problems contacting him. Any ideas?
  9. I intended to heat mine at about 13°C or so too... I think the only way to see if it works it's trying, unfortunately it's damn hard to make predictions in this case
  10. Personally I've begun to thnk that this topic might have very different answers depending on where the grower comes from... for example Ive seen that in France many enthusiasts heat their ghs with electricity but my goodness here it'd be like spending a pint and a hlf of blood a day! In Italy everything is kinda expensive, I think that pellet here would be the best option for a small gh like mine, but heh, probably in France or in the UK propane or gas work better
  11. Thanks for all the replies! I don't think mats could be enough, also as usual the cost of electricity would be way too high
  12. Hello everyone :) I am the owner of a 2,5 m x 3 m x 2,5 m (height) greenhouse, covered with PVC panels. I would like to heat it at about 13°C or 15°C during the Winter in order to grow a larger variety of plants, especially highland Nepenthes and Heliamphora, but I fear it would be extremely expensive. I live in Northern Italy and temperatures in Winter can be as low as -5°C... electricity is definitely unaffordable here I think, so I was thinking about using a small pellet stove... do you have idea?
  13. Hello there, I'd like to add my blog to the list too https://www.facebook.com/deslyweedsgh/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel :)
  14. Hello there... it's two years I'm experiencing great problems with peat-based substrate for Pygmy Drosera. I mean... while the specimens I grow in peat:perlite with a layer of pure sand on top grow as they are supposed to, along with those kept in pure red loam + sand, those in peat : sand : perlite look just awful. I've really begun to think that these plants can't stand the peaty soil around their feet. Anybody of you has ever had this problem? (I keep my plants in a greenhouse in Summer and move them inside when it's too cold in Winter, in an unheated room with a lamp). Here are some pics, sorry for the quality, but I think they're enough to get what I mean.
  15. Yep, pings are pretty slow in general, i simply wish they'll begin to grow again XD i'm really tired of those winter rosettes
  16. I think you're kinda right... now temps are higher, during the afternoon in the greenhouse i may get 25C, I'll try to keep the soil moister but meh, they really seem to do defeq they want XD
  17. I keep mine in the same conditions but now temps here are definitely higher. Some are flowering, some are just STILL. Like gypsicola, cyclosecta etc... I've tried to water them more but one rotted in a few days, so I'm keeping them drier now. Btw I they seem to be in delay this year, this is what concerns me
