Eventually I ordered my plants and got them delivered. And I went a bit weak when ordering and a pot of young Cephalotus went into the basket.
I got me:
D. capensis (red form)
These plants are for being planted in what is originally a fish tank, it will be my version of the tray method.
Plants were well packed by Hampshire Carnivorous Plant (south coast of England, so much milder climate than where I live). I guess all plants are from unheated greenhouses. The pots were cool too touch and I don't think it is down to the 2 days in the lorry/depot during transit.
3 of the pots doesn't look to well, the Capensis as several broken leaves, the Aliciae seems flattened (2 plants close together), the Spatulata seems to have some dried leaves? Sorry, all pictures with a mobile. I can try to see whether I have more success with my pocket camera.
Plants are unpacked and currently sitting in a plastic box with a bit of water in the bottom, lid on, in my living room. Since yesterday.
I actually don't know how warm or cold it will be in the fish tank, somehow I managed not to get me a thermometer yet and I don't have a hygrometer either.
I have empty pots here, I have peat moss (or is it moss peat?), Coarse sand, sand (the one you use for sand pits children play in), dried Spaghnum and not quite dead Spagnum (the stuff used for hanging basket, has lots of green in it).
Pots in 3 different sizes, see picture. The 2 bigger ones have the same diameter, but one is deeper than the other.
