  1. Hi Christian, I sent the payment with Paypal yesterday. How long from payment with Paypal, until I get the ticket, and confirmation for the field trip? Thank's Yaron
  2. Great looking flower! What conditions do you grow it? Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  3. Unfortunately all over the Mediterranean we have warm weather this year. End of October - barley any rain and temps of up to 30c. Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  4. Good thing I'm all of the above Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  5. Or a Russian bride... [emoji1] Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  6. Maybe this should be treated on a case by case issue, and not a global thing Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  7. Don't wait for things to sprout. Set up air motion now, otherwise also other things might develope, such as mold, because of humidity Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  8. I could be mistaken, but I didn't see any air ciculation or venting. You need fans to move the air arround, and an intake/outake of air, to preven heat buildup and nasties Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  9. For small collections, I buy plastic containers at places that sell disposable utensils. Cost about 2.50$ where I live and hold six 10cm pots Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  10. Don't forget to give it sandy soil and a very tall and wide pot for it's size. It helps the Ceph grow on the long run. Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  11. Hi, Mike's website is down. Does nyone know if it is temporary?
  12. Look for an ingrediant called Imidacloprid, and contains no soap or oils. The brand name changes, but the chemical is the same world wide. I use it on many CPs. Dionaea seem to decline a bit after usage and then recover, but other than that no problems. I use it in the water, and it kills even the aphids I don't see. Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  13. Also, I hear a cold period of 15c for a week will get them flowering again, but I don't have first hand experiance Sent from my LG-H815 using Tapatalk
  14. Keep it ventilated, with fans, and the smell should ware off after a while. I used Aquarium silicone in my terrarium, with no ill affects on plants of any kind. I don't remember the exact type, just that it was meant for aquariums. I used both black, clear and white, depending on which application I needed. Here is an image from 07/2015. Sorry, don't have updated images...
  15. I just got to see this thread, and it looks very impressive. I would make one modification - rather than turning down the electrical output by covering the solar panels, I would install a valve on the output of the water pump, and controlling the water flow that way. It will allow for good electrical usage even on cloudy days, while allowing for easier control over the pumps output.

    Drosera Aliciae

    I grow D aliciae outside in full sun, and it's around 28c with 40%. No terrarium or bottles needed. The dew is mainly due to good light, and not high humidity. I get 1mm width dew on my sundews. __________________________________ Sent from my phone, so sorry for mistakes
  17. Hi All, I will be visiting Germany in July, travelling form Bon to Berlin, and I am hoping someone can offer CP things to see along the way. The route hasn't been set, and we will be traveling by car. Thanks all

    Nice. Am I correct to assume this is a germination chamber? How do you keep temperatures up during winter? Sent from my phone, so sorry for mistakes
  20. Looks like a cross between wide leaf and typical Sent from my phone, so sorry for mistakes
  21. Could be one of two things: Too much light - U. Longifilia prefer shade and not lots of light Too litle water. I can't see the soil in the images, but it prefers to sit permanently in water. Oh, one more thing. This might happen if temperatures get low, under 15c. Sent from my phone, so sorry for mistakes. My growlist can be found at: http://ysraz.com/general/myself/yarons-grow-list/
  22. I'm trying to figgure out why place egg shell cart on the buttom of terrariums and trays, and would appreciate your oppinion. It looks that if it's meant for drainage, the squares won't really allow for water flow. I would assume that having quartz stone on the buttom would allow for better drainage.

  23. You could try using the 24w light as general light, and add cheap 12w COB LEDs directed at the Sundews. That will let you play with the lighting intensity. I tried that with a 100 cm terrarium, but the Sundews are still light starved, and don't develope properly. Mind you, I grew them from seed, and only after reaching 5cm hight they started showing problems. Utricularia sandersonii growing with the seem to be doing well Sent from my phone, so sorry for mistakes. My growlist can be found at: http://ysraz.com/general/myself/yarons-grow-list/
  24. Hi. First off, the light will probably not be enough for Sundews. The Nepenthes will grow tall, forcing the light to be higher and farther from the Sundews, and that will cause loss of light. The Sundews will end up light starved. You might want to supplement thier light with COB LEDs directed at them. You might want to consider having the light fixture on wires, so you can move them with plant growth. When you ask about media, are you planing on having a planted terrarium? If so, Neps won't do well growing in the same media as Sundews. Also, Sundews prefer having the soil permanently wet, while Neps prefer damp, well drained and airy soil. If you are going for planted, consider having the Neps in pots, above the main soil, with gravel under it to enable good drainage. You can set these pots to look like logs of wood, small rock formations etc... Sent from my phone, so sorry for mistakes.

  25. I have two simple 1$ 80mm computer fans running in my terrarium for three years. They are both 12V fans. For the price, I wouldn't even hesitate. You can always buy some connectors, so if the fan goes, you simply connect a new one. Sent from my phone, so sorry for mistakes.
