WELCOME Clemmie! Don't lurk anymore, be a part of our community!
  • #43
Hey Clemmie,
Sounds like you've got a great collection! I think I'd be right in saying you've got a good deal of experience with cp, and that you'd be a very helpful member of this forum. I've been a lurker before(I'm a long-time lurker on the cp listserv), and I think you can learn a lot more when you join in the discussions.
nice to meet ya,

> Hmmm... it must have taken a very long time to collect > to mant utrics I've never even HEARD of!

Not as long as you think, and I'm sure the technique would work for collecting other species. I watched carefully for people who were selling plants, and bought up everything I could. They were never very expensive - never more than &#3610-15 - a cost which was recouped as they multiplied through trades.

I set up a nice-looking website that showed how interested I was. I found people who also had good collections and wrote polite emails offering to trade with them. I also help people out whenever I can, and often give away free plants when I have a surplus.

If you're polite, make an effort to educate yourself, spend a bit of money and try to contribute the CP community, it's quite amazing how fast you can increase your collection.

Anyway, just a thought.


PS. Don't envy my D. regia too much, after about a year it's still tiny. I had a bunch of them that all grew from seed (from Rowland's in the UK). I've given away all of them except one. They were really easy to germinate.
  • #45
Hi there,

Thanks for the welcome. I've been growing cp's for about 3 years. I've had VFT's for about 10 years but never did much with them except divide and give them to neighbor's kids who killed them in less than a year. Now that we live in a house, I decided to garden so I have lots of pots of this and that. I put most of my cp's in a bog pot. The nep's stay indoors in the window with my orchids.

I'm lucky that I live a 15 minute drive away from California Carnivores. Peter and Merilee are very helpful.
  • #46
A 15 minute drive to California Carnivores?! Yes you're VERY lucky!
I've always wanted to visit their place...of course, I hope to visit Exotic Gardens someday too;) CalifCarn is my #1 choice for anything PetFlytrap doesn't stock. Just wondering--does California Carnivores do on-site sales as well?

Byblis lininflora? Cool! I've already ordered lininflora seed from another source, but I hear it's an excellent terrarium plant. What's your way of growing it?
thanks and great collection,

Thats it i think. every year i gain and lose plants so its hard to keep track! I do have a photo of my colection ill post when i can upload it.
  • #51
Byblis liniflora an excellent terrarium plant ?

The plants need a LOT of light and a photoperiod > 11 hours, otherwise they will die.
In nature Byblis liniflora is an annual and most people cultivate them as an annual. Seedlings will grow extremly ! fast and can flower in 4 months. They produce a lot of seed, even under (strong!) artificial light.

I also grow some carnivorous plants and have a growlist of them :

  • #53
Great picture Richard. Where do you get hold of your plants in the UK? I know Cambrian Carnivores is coming back in spring after being bought by Andy Wilkinson.
Noah - can you tell me what a 'Creeping Death' VFT is??!
  • #54
At the start of my collection, i bought most of my plants from Marston exotics and Cambrian carnivores but now i get all my plants from the UK cps meetings. Its amazing what and how cheap you can pick plants up for! The Heliamphora Heterodoxa x minor cost just £3.50 for the mature plant!!!!!
  • #55
"Creeping Death" VHT is a procumbent, very long stemmed, large traped VFT. Don't have it yet but working on it!
  • #56
Yes, that's right. It gets 6" plus leaves, really narrow, and nice sized traps. That is, that is what it is supposed to get. Ever since I received my plant, it has been forming short, wide petiols with huge traps at the end. Maybe the long petioles is only a summer thing. I'm working on getting it into tc, so this one should be becoming more common in the future, that is, if it really is a different variety.
