  1. Hi all, I picked up a nepenthes plant at a local garden centre today and I just wanted some advice on caring for it, the media it was in was bone dry and I've included pictures to show what the pictures and leaves look like. I just want to make sure I'm doing the right things to get the plant happy and healthy! Thank you in advance for any advice!
  2. Ok, so I have recently decided that I want to get some CPs for my garden, but I'm not sure what format I want them in, and would like some of your help in choosing. My wife hates houseplants so they must be hardy enough to stay outside year-round, and I don't have a greenhouse. Our soil has a ph of over 8.3 and drains faster than a hose can water it, so I can't put them in the ground. Because of this, I think I either want a mini bog garden in a pot, or carnivorous plants in the margins of my small pond (I have space for 2 15-20cm aquatic baskets in full sun (1 12cm deep and 1 4cm deep), plus a little shaded space on the other side of my 7 square foot pond) I definitely want at least 1 sundew which I would like to be native, but I would like a VFT and some pitcher plants as well, and possibly bladderworts for a small part of my pond. However, whatever I get, I don't want to have to water everything too regularly (which is why I like the pond marginal idea), and it has to be relatively cheap (I would be very reluctant to spend over £50, and £70 is my limit). I want my plants to be for watching them catch insect and looking interesting, not for being some rare 1-of-a-kind species imported from russia. So, to summarise, I want 1 or more native sundews with a VFT and pitcher plants of some sort in either a container bog garden or in 1 or 2 15-20cm pond baskets as marginals, possibly alongside bladderworts in the pond, all ideally for under £50. Can you give me any reccommendations? Is my budget reasonable? Where should I look to find the plants?
  3. Hi all, I recently but in a little order @ roraima.pl for some nepenthes for my xmas present, however suffice to say I didn't quite get what I ordered. instead of a variety of hybrids with spathulata I have instead ended up with the following: N. reinwardtiana N. sibuyanensis N. rafflesiana N. maxima "wavy leaf" N. vogelii N. ventricosa x dubia now, I know reinwardtiana and raff. are easy as pie and grow just fine around the house, however what of the others? I'm hoping the hybrid in there inherits ventricosa's easy to grow genes but outside of that I really have no idea what to expect from any of them so any tips RE their care would be massively appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  4. Here is a picture of my young Nepenthes burbidgeae x edwardsiana, the lid has discoloured somewhat after re-potting (was reluctant to do it but it was necessary) and looks a bit dried up, otherwise the plant looks fine but this happened in the space of 2 days. It is currently its only mature pitcher but has atleast 2 more on the way. I'd just like either reassurance that my plant wont die or advice of anything i can do to help it of it needs it. http://i1367.photobucket.com/albums/r791/Tom_Currell/IMG_00461_zps0fedafc0.jpg
