|Ah, Mr Dragon Goby, welcome to this forum.|
I believe we met last saturday? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img][/QUOTE]
Yep, we've met. =) How are the plants doing? OK, I hope? I've just gotten a friend to adopt my peacock, so hopefully I will be able to get proper racks set up asap for my Sarracenia.
Yep, got my supply of distilled water today from Cold Storage at 65 cents per 1.5l bottle. Sh;d be adequate given the size of my collection now [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
Yes, my plants are all still alive although the growing conditions are very different from your place.
Nice to know that you will have more space for more CPs!
BTW, anyone bought any good plants from any online stores?
Please share your experience if you have. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
The last time I saw neps was last year...n.rafflesiana. *Very rare nowadays unless you come round for breakfast every morning or else it'll be bought by ME. *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
Plonk them in water...tap water or distilled water...leave them somewhere cool with lots of light. *Mine are in my terrarium under florescent lights. Should root in 2-3 weeks' time. *But, I have one particular gracilis that REFUSED to root ever since I had it.
PM me if you want details and pics...I take cuttings almost every other week!
Only tap water. <!!!!> I could almost hear you guys gasp! Don't ask me why but I've not seen any difference even though I watered with with distilled water for a year before. *Bear in mind that I cut back and repot my plants every 6-12 months so using tap water wouldn't affect them much.
Watch the temperate CPs though. *They are more sensitive/fragile already because of the weather difference here, so I used distilled water. No compromise.
As for reverse osmosis...poorly paid me cannot afford. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
Shall I slime him here and show him never to incur the wrath of a woman?!! *And the only woman PFT S'porean member?! (Actually it's the woman's man who is growling...) Why? *Because I bought a huge pot of sarracenia purpurea from him...then realised that the roots were infested with root mealies! *Never mind about that b'cos he probably didn't know but it spread to the rest of my plants and wipe out my entire collection of temperate CPs... *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]
I know cheekin...lost contact with him...probably b'cos I change my email address...and don't tell me you are related to THY...my boyfriend has banned me from buying anything from him...or talk to him...I only know D.G. from PFT...
On the subject of water, I have posted in the June poll. attached below:

I use tap water, cos rain isn't falling as much nowadays here in Singapore.
The quality of the tap water is like so:
Is this good? So far, I've been doing this for 3-4 weeks already, and my plants seem to be doing fine.
The tap water in Singapore is slightly alkaline, PH 7~8.
TDS is ranging from 80 ~120ppm
Not so good for CPs, however I do use tap water (stand for 24 hours) for mature Nep for few months, they are still happy, flash it with rain or pure water once a while.
The rest of my Cps are watered with pure water from a distiller.
Hi all Sing CPer,
Good priced S$12~16 (at least cheaper than FEF and .....you know where) Neps available at Orchidville at Lorong Lada Hitam off Mandai Road.....go go go!!
