  1. Today
  2. I have some really nice new plants and did a rearrangement in the greenhouse to maximise space and tidy it up Sarracenia Leucophylla Cyenium Fields, Perdido, Alabama This is a Purpurea from Lidl, a surprisingly nice plant I was so happy to see this shoot earlier today, since I stuck what was effectively a piece of leaf with no root and very little rhizome into the ground on this Schnell's Ghost :) Can't kill what's already dead I suppose?
  3. Hi Colin welcome to the forum! :) I do like purpureas, that was the first carnivorous plant I ever owned. Best of luck with your collection!
  4. Hi Fede!!! Nice to see you here!! Che piacere vederti!! Benvenuto!!
  5. Goodmorning everyone. I'm Federico, I've been writing from Italy and growing carnivorous plants for 5 years. I'm a member of the Italian Carnivorous Plants Association (AIPC) Sorry if my English is a little basic, I hope you understand me anyway See you soon!
  6. Yesterday
  7. Hi all, Thanks for letting me join the forum! Looking forward to learning more on here and translating that to my plant care! Currently I'm keeping a sarracenia purpurea, a couple of drosera, and a bladderwort! Best wishes Colin
  8. Dear All, We are glad to to inform you that the PDF-English version of AIPC Magazine n.1 (2018) completely dedicated to a field trip in Abruzzo is finally ready. Abruzzo is a marvellous region from a naturalistic point of view, but also rich in culture and traditions and, above all, in Pinguicula (three species, P. vulgaris and the endemic P. fiorii and P. vallis-regiae, two subspecies, P. vulgaris subsp. ernicaand P. vulgaris subsp. vestina; we present also P. vulgaris subsp. anzalonei wich occurs just across the border of the region). Unfortunately, this is also a wounded land, struck in recent years by devastating earthquakes that have caused many victims. AIPC has dedicated an entire magazine to this beautiful region and started a fundraising through the sale of this journal in Italy and abroad. This was certainly a spontaneous, symbolic almost dutiful act, immediately shared by the Board and all the members of AIPC. We have decided to donate the funds collected to the population of Campotosto, a village in Abruzzo that has the sad record of having been near the epicentres of the worst earthquakes that have recently struck central Italy. Obviously at the end of the fundraising we will inform you of the amount obtained thanks to your help. You have 3 options: - you can donate 20 € or more and you will receive the hard copy of the journal in Italian and the PDF-English version (shipping costs included) - you can donate 5 € or more to recieve just the PDF-English version - if you're not interested neither in the journal nor in the PDF-English version you can donate the amount you prefer (also less than 20 €). Here the link to the page of our website where you can find more info on the way of donation: LINK Many thanks for your help! Maurizio Saroldi, AIPC Editor Here some pictures from the PDF

  10. Last week
  11. @Richard Bunn No problem. Darwin it is. I'll make a start. No idea how long it will take. Having 10 month old is taking up a bit of my time :) Shall I send it to you once it's finished Richard?
  12. @Platty I really like the sound of the Darwin article. Can I persuade you to write it for the Newsletter? It'd go down a treat.
  13. Hi the CPS has two publications: Planta Carnivora which tends to include all the science based articles but also reports on visits to cp sites in the UK and overseas, descriptions of new cultivars and other items of general cp interest. The main point is that they must be high quality and possibly peer reviewed articles. The editor is Dr Martin Cheek of RBG Kew. The other publication is the Newsletter which is aimed at providing information to members on what is happening in the Society, shows, meetings, CP weekends, open days and other events, successes and failures, growing conditions, media and equipment etc. The editor is Richard Bunn. The editors will welcome articles and you can contact both via the Contacts page on the website (www.thecps.org.uk) to obtain advice and guidance. Dennis
  14. Hi all, The CPS are keen to have people from the society write an article for the magazine. I'd like to give it a go, but I'm interested in want sort of articles people might like? For example: An account of getting in to growing CPs A scientific article, such as enzyme production in Drosera, production of anthocyanins in Sarracenia etc How did Darwin prove that plants were carnivorous? Proparation of certain CPs Trials and tribulations. Or another aspect of growing CPs Anyway your thoughts and ideas are welcome. Platty
  15. The second one is sold as N. x Gaya by Araflora: https://www.araflora.com/p4472/tropical_pitcher_plant_nepenthes_x_gaya_l Or by Hampshire Carnivorous Plants: https://www.hantsflytrap.com/be3725-nepenthes-gaya-1361-p.asp Regards Joachim
  16. Thanks again Guy. I've checked the curled up bits with a x8 magnifier, there are very tiny,( even under the magnifier) white spiky objects that look as if they might be shed skins from aphid young. I'll have to get my microscope out. Aphids are partially parthenogenic, they over winter as eggs and all hatch as females which give birth to live young without needing males. Later in the summer the males are born and then eggs are produced again to over winter. I think I need to concentrate spraying in late summer and early spring. Each year recently we've been getting about a fortnight of warm weather in May up here and I need to start spraying just before the new tubes form. It is deffinitely sooty mould not botritis as it is not furry like botritis and also it appears higher up on the tubes not where ventilation fails to reach. I'm very careful about botritis and cleaning up dead bits. I've very rarely seen any on my cp's luckily. Triona
  17. Hi, The first is N. x ventrata For the second, it's an hybrid, but one ?
  18. I never knew that, could explain a lot! That's why I come on this forum - always snippets of useful info to learn. Thanks Alexis.
  19. You need to let Richard Bunn know (he's the admin). Best to PM him.
  20. Thanks for your reply Joachim. Good to see you here! Amazing greenhouse and collection.
  21. Hi everyone, This my first season with a few aroids. Some successes and some failures. I'd like to see your aroids to! Amophophallus konjac Amophophallus albus Amophophallus nepalensis Pinellia Arisaema flava Arisaema propinquum Arisaema ? (It's on the tag) Sauromatum venosum Thanks for looking
  22. Hello Florent, nice website you have! of course I do remember my site, and I still have a local copy... :-) It took some years of work and a move to reach the next step in cultivation. Sadly I don´t have the time to put a valuable site together right now. But f you are interested in what happens, you can check my posts in the German GFP-Forum: https://forum.carnivoren.org/forums/topic/43712-gewächshaus-nepenthes/ https://forum.carnivoren.org/forums/topic/45884-n-maxima-diverse-pflanzen/ https://forum.carnivoren.org/forums/topic/46124-n-sibuyanensis-ziemlicher-brummer/ https://forum.carnivoren.org/forums/topic/47176-pollen-n-x-trusmadiensis-verfügbar/ https://forum.carnivoren.org/forums/topic/46650-n-clipeata-hybride/ https://forum.carnivoren.org/forums/topic/46319-n-ceciliae-oder-nicht/ Regards Joachim
  23. Hello everyone! Some of you may remember Joachim Danz's website, that, regrettably, is no longer online. I liked it, and it gave me the inspiration for my blog Carnivorous Plant Stories. Please check it out! Regards, Florent
  24. Hi All. After a long time without participating in the forum I edited my Growlist and then tried to edit my profile info unsuccessfully. Also I can not delete my own messages (changed the text, are in my Growlist). Could someone check what is going on with my user? Thanks in advance for your attention. Carlos.

  26. Hi Jure, Well, I can deliver that. Do you have plants to swap or will you buy it from me? I'm looking for Darlingtona, D. madagascariensis or P Colimensis. We will then see what is a fair swap. Or per shoot 3 euros plus 1, 5 euro for packing (You'll see it'll be worth it) and postage costs, which will of course depend on where you live The shoots will be about 5 cm so that'll be two, but I can see if 10 cm will fit in the package. And always with several leaves and I'll see if it has bladders. They develop quite fast by the way, those bladders. Regards
