Last 4 months I was busy growing many CPs from seeds.
Here is a sample view of my new collection of mostly Drosera

Fantastic work JK! I only wish my efforts are close to yours. BTW, I think your link is not working.
Now it is okay. Great job! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
JK, I am intrigued by your watering method. Could you tell us about your watering system? Looks like the bog could last a few days with the 1.5 L beverage bottle.
Yes, the 1.5 L "CP beverage" bottle last up to a week on sunny days and up to 2 weeks on cloudy days.
I would have to take some pics of the watering system before I can explain it meaningfully.
Right now I am busy with a congress which ends on this Saturday, let see if I could steal some time, promise to post as soon as I can.
ive always wanted to this kind of watering method when i go for holidays but i couldnt imagine how it would work. I was thinking of putting a thick layer of cotton wool/sponge at the bottle cap area so that the water wets the sponge and the sponge waters the soil but i havent tried it out. maybe you have a better method?
A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"
The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

The coned bottle cap was obtained from gardening section at Daiso in IMM (a pair for 2 S$).
There are two tiny holes drilled into the cone on the same longitudinal axis. When the filled bottle is capped and turn inverted with pointed end into the soil, and if water level in the pot is lower than the upper hole replacement air can enter through the upper hole and water is released from the lower hole. When water level come up to the upper hole, watering stops. But when one or both of the tiny holes is blocked by the soil particles watering action is not reliable, which happen several times.
The film canister with holes was mounted as shown provides a free space for proper watering action and protects the holes from blockage. But make sure that the canister does not blocks the holes.
This is my 1 $ worth of contribution. Hope it help.
Brilliant idea! I must do this soon! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
