Hi, this is my first post and my second summer of successful CP growing.

I fell in love with Sarracenia purpurea and a Drosera filiformis, and having successfully made it through a year of cultivation, I have become the owner of several more Hardy plants with which I am in the process of creating a sink display bog garden.

I am getting addicted to Utricularia spp. right now too, but windowsill grower only!

I have a Pinguicula grandiflora to exchange when I can get a moment to post in the appropriate page.

Thanks for reading, hope to see you all around.

W.

I got some of mine from Mr Hewitt Cooper, he's got the best selection ( of Utric's) I've seen this summer.

I've had mine outside for the past 5 weeks, they've loved it bar the U.delicatula. It seems to be fighting a gelatinous slime mould or some such, I've separated it off from the others to be safe.

Please let us know when your selection arrives, and what your "lucky dip" has produced.

Hello and welcome.

I also grow a lot of my plants indoors at present until we get the garden done enough for me to get a greenhouse. I do have bettys bay outside which hasn't done too well this year with no flowers produced at all, lots of leaves but no flowers. Even the one indoors has produced nothing yet for that matter. But there's a month or so before they go into the porch for hibernation (not all go there.)

Hi pirks, nice to meet you. Sorry your "Betty's Bay" has not flowered, they are such bonny wee things! Hope they come through for you before they go dormant.
