    Cephalotus consolidated

    Funny you should mention this as I have first hand experience of what their natural habitat is like- I used to live in it. And I used to dig up the soil to see what it was like for myself because I was interested also in what it was made up of. I used to live in Bunbury over 15 years ago now. We...

    What is this black thing? its on flower

    Sometimes waterdroplets on your plants can fry in the sun and cause burnt spots....perhaps this is the reason for those spots? As for why the plant was named using a referance to the Ancient Roman deity Venus, it has nothing to do with Venus whatsoever more a social comment by botanists with...

    Will this do for now?

    You guys in the US are lucky in the respect that you can easily purchase a typical vft exhibiting natural characteristics wheras here in Aus i find all the vfts sold are cultivars with similar backgrounds featuring plants of an inbred nature. None of the plants sold here in stores have upright...

    Leaf pulling accident.

    You know you can propagate vfts by using their flower stems....saves you from damaging your plant and uses something that otherwise would just be discarded. Plus you get quite a few plants from this method,especially when lying the flower stem horizontally on the medium. Good thing vfts...

    My trap!

    lol your plant looks so vulnerable on that ledge with nothing to stop it blowing over....i've had a few vfts tip over from strong breezes even in quite large pots lol probably because peat is so light lol i just fasten them down with a bit of blu tack.

    The cup it came in..

    Personally i wouldn't rush out and repot it until you are sure you know your purchasing the right peat. If you want to keep it in the small pot it came in then i would advise the use of shadecloth as placing your plant in direct sunlight in such a small container will lead to it drying out very...

I do this and it takes away all the problems of trying to find the right stuff in shops as most of the stuff found in shops is problematic as...
