Absolute jammed packed 30m (?) greenhouse full of Nepenthes...I think he posts Australia wide too, so feel free to contact him on there.

    What are you all growing at the moment? I've not got the biggest of collections due to being stuck in the rental house prison but I've got Sarracenia outside with VFT and a tonne of seeds propagating indoors at the moment along with Pinguicula, Utricularia, Tuberous, Cephalotus and some Lowland Nepenthes. I was growing quite a few Nepenthes but had to get rid due to not being able to construct a greenhouse...But hopefully that will change eventually.
    Hi Nick! Nice to meet you I'm already a member of the Perth Facebook page, but didn't know about Primal Plants so thanks for that! I've already sent him a message enquiring about his cephalotus lol. I am determined to add one to my collection one of these days!! Hoping to do a road trip one weekend to check out his plants. I've only been collecting for a few months, but actually got around to posting my growlist the other day;

    I also have a heap of seeds sown (sarracenia, dionaea, drosera) but not sure if they will successful lol. First time growing CPs from seed, and I just had to move everything to a new location at home due the the Geraldton wind ripping down my shade cloth. Well fingers crossed anyway....lol
    It's cool to finally find a few people with some Pings happening in Australia.

    I don't have much of a set up compared to some growers lol but here's a few pics -
    My plants are just on my balcony on some old furniture that was here when we bought the house lol it does get some pretty impressive light at certain times of the day though, all the plants seems pretty happy so far.



    And these are my seeds currently sown, just out in the backyard. Have covered kitty litter trays in glad wrap for humidity and made funnels to easily top up the water levels and help with air flow. We only have Bunnings around here, so if you can't get what you need you have to get a bit creative lol. Hoping for at least some success, but it's my first time trying to grow CPs from seed and the weather has been very inconsistent....
