    Hi,

    seems that I will get a job in Sri lanka (next to the Indian sea :-) ) from march till July 2003.

    So I would highly appreciate some tipps about the country, native carnivorous plants and so on...
    If there are any cp growers I would be very interested to watch their collections. Should be very differnt groeing methods compared to the cold Germany.

    ok, "job" is propably a bit to much...

    It's the second practical semester(?) which I have to do during my study. I'm studiing environmental engeniering and I will do some work at trying some substitudes for peat (for comercial gardening and houseplants, especially interesting for cps, where you need lots of peat)
    I also want to work on a project for ecological tourism and want to plan, make and try an intersting path / tour where tourists can get some information about Sri Lanka's flora and fauna and ecological resources.

    I don't know excatly what I will have to do and it still is not 100% sure if I get the job but it looks quite good at the moment.

    Congrats Martin! Hope you like hot steamy climates!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    hehe

    N distillatoria is native to Sri Lanka, but that's basically all that I know.

    I'm sure you'll have plenty of fun there. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Hello Martin,

    How interesting. I wonder who would you be working for whilst you are here? A private nursery or a Government agency such as the Coconut Research Institute? Anyway, I hope you make it over and I would be happy for you to visit us if you wish. We have some Nepenthes and a few Heliamphora in the nurseries. In habitat you can find Nepenthes distillatoria and several Utricularia spp. There is at least one Drosera too.

    We use coco-peat as a peat substitute all the time for Nepenthes and Heliamphora.

    If you open your suitcase after you arrive and Tony Paroubek jumps out, I wouldn't be at all surprised! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    If you come, I hope you enjoy Sri Lanka!

    Rob

    Rob,

    What is the Drosera? D. spatulata?

    Regards,

    Joe
