A new addition to the family S.moorei ‘Adrian Slack’

10AM

32 S.Rubra var rubra seedlings potted up before the heat got too over powering in the glass house. Plus 24 trigger plants split and popped into individual cells. Phew it’s hot again now, time for a ice cold larger!

The sarracenia a just loving all this heat and sunshine!

Yesterday I was happily potting up last years seedlings and listening to the rim fall on the glass. Too any seedlings not enough space, even with the new glass house I’m struggling to find room!

Hi, sorry for the late reply, I’m no expert on growing these two from seed but will add a little write up in my blog that might help.

The drosera tend to be fairly easy as they grow like weeds in my glass house but the Neps are a little different and need specific conditions to germinate. I’ve only ever managed to germinate two seeds!

As I say I will see what I can do and post some more info shortly.

Hi, if it’s the one I think you are referring to I have just posted another photo. It’s S. Leucophylla “white and purple giant”

Thanks for the interest!

I did a project at a museum a while ago, where we hid metallic pipes behind some old scrap wood to make it look a little more rustic, and stained them as well. With the white PVC pipes we spray painted them to look like cast iron. I dunno if you have a plan or not, but it looked really neat when pulled off. Good puck with hiding them! Your plants are beautiful!

That’s a great idea, I have some bark and moss I can use. I will post a photo or two when I have had a stab at it. Thanks!

I’m glad you like my plants and took the time to contact me with your suggestion.
