Hi there, I am new to the forum and have just started up my collection again after a few years out of the game. Currently, I have a nepenthes x ventrata and have ordered a nepenthes maxima from Hampshire Carnivorous Plants. Both plants will be grown in my conservatory which receives direct sunlight nearly all day. I am located in the Scottish Highlands. Any tips for the cultivation of both nepenthes species would be welcomed and any pictures of these species would be great (especially uk growers!!!). Cheers.
Hi, I'm Niall from Ireland! Similarly to everyone here(I assume), I have an interest in carnivorous plants. What began as oddities spotted in the local garden centre soon became my current collection of Nepenthes 'Ventrata' Nepenthes 'Bloody Mary' Sarracenia Flava Venus Fly-trap (normal form(x3)) It was only at the point of realising how excited I was when I saw a 'Bloody Mary' pop up in a florist window that I realised the trend of Carnivorous plants I have done much research into most types of CPs and currently know all the basics from ppm of water to dormancy, but with the project I've decided to embark on I am struggling to get all the information I need. As a result I type here before you to ask for help(and hopefully I'll be able to give you all help in the future). I recently bought seeds for S. Psittacina S. Alata (Dark Form) S. Leucophylla S. Minor S. Oreophila (Red Throat) S. Flava var. Ornata S. Purpurea ssp.venose var.burkii Pinguicula Grandiflora Drosera Rotundifolia (French strain) And my grand plan is to create a nice bog Garden area in my garden. So first of all to get a good handle on the forum, can I ask questions here or would it be better to split them into their respected disciplines? most of my questions are about the drosera and pinguicula as information on them seems sparse.
