Hi guys, just joined this forum despite being a lover of and grower of CP's for most of my life. I'm a brit living in Melbourne, and have a collection of mainly Nepenthes and Sarracenias in my greenhouse.

 

The availability of plants here is not as extensive as in Europe and the US, but I've used a couple of 'local' suppliers (namely Exotica Plants and Borneo Exotics) and have been very happy with the Nepenthes plants they have sold me. They are relatively recent purchases, as I have not been here long, but soon hope to brighten up this site with pictures.

 

Hope I can be of help to you guys, I know that I will learn loads from you all!

Triffid park in Victoria have a huge selection of sarracenia, here in Au we also have exotica plants (as you know), primal plants, captive exotics and various societies you could join to hel build the collection

will do Neil - once I work out how to post pictures!

thanks Adelae, I'm hoping to contribute to the local CP community. One thing I have never done is grow Nepenthes from seed and this is something I hope to do while here. With any luck I'll have some female plants amongst my neps, and even if I don't, I will be making the pollen available when the flowers eventually show themselves, ditto with the sarracenia seeds

cheers

Les
