hi from perth
Hi im david...
Im new in australia. And I left all my drosera and nephie at indonesia. So doeas anyone knows where I can find drosera or other cp in perth? Tq
Primal plants (which must be contacted via email or the Australian carn forum) is in South W.A
Triffid park Au (in Victoria)
Exotica plants (QLD) for nepenthes
Captive exotics has a broad range (like triffid) but takes awhile to reply sometimes.
There is also Pitcher fever, but I have no knowledge on their plants quality
Otherwise the Au forum has a trade/buy section so you could post what you want and maybe meet some other W.A growers.
I am not putting the forum link as it seems a tad rude to admin here, but think mentioning it is fair as you can't buy plants from the majority of members here due to quarantine issues.
Captives in in NSW, I have no idea about Pitcher fever.
From them you can buy drosera (incuding an array of pygmies and tuberous) (triffid and captive
Nepenthes (mainly captive for pure and exotica for hybrids)
Sarracenia (mainly triffid)
Dionaea (mainly triffid)
Utricularia (but not many) again triffid and captive
Oh ok.. tq adelea for the information... say, australian tap water are safe to drosera or vft? Coz in some article say if human can drink the water its safe for cp. Is it true?
Thanx for ur info.
The quality of the water depends on area, Perths water (like most of our cities) has Cl and a few have F, or various salts.
The severity varies from town to town, for example in Ingham QLD the tap water of the town is ok for carns providing one repots now and then, yet in Townsville a mere 100km down the rd the water will kill a dionaea or drosera within a week, even within Townsville (its a city) certain water in a few suburbs is fine for nepenthes, yet 10km away in another suburb it can be lethal.
I keep most of my plants at dads, near ingham, but he has a bore and lives in the mountains so the water is very "soft" as opposed to a cities "hard" water.
So you will have to check your own water, otherwise go to a clean creek (not one in a paddock as sheep and cattle pollute the water to much) or collect rain water.
