I added the following plants to my growlist:
D. muscipula 'Clayton's Red Sunset'
D. muscipula "Crested Petioles" (Triffid Park 12/08)
D. muscipula "Cross Teeth" (Triffid Park 12/08)
D. muscipula "Gold Strike" (Triffid Park 12/08)
D. muscipula "Long Red Fingers" (Triffid Park 12/08)
D. muscipula "Pink Venus" (Triffid Park 12/08)
D. muscipula 'Royal Red'

Pretty exciting!

Great plants matt! have you anything to say about the conditions of which Triffid Park send their plants?



Lily, The plants look good at this time of the year because thay have come from australia where the seasons are reversed(eg you are in winter, we are in Summer)

Thanks for telling me that Pat. If it is summer almost all year long, how does it go dormant?

The plants from Triffid Park were excellent. They were very large and quite healthy. They were in the mail for about 3 weeks by the time I got them. Considering how long they were in transit, I think they were in excellent condition. I hope that they take off when spring arrives here. I wasn't happy about taking plants from the middle of their growing season and forcing them into dormancy, but hopefully they'll be fine.

Wehave winter, spring and autumn( Thats what we call fall) :D



Thats good to hear Matt. I might buy some plants from them some day. At the moment I'm just fine buying plants from other enthusiasts.
