T.R.A.P. and some newbies

Hello my dear readers! First of all I'm sorry for not writing here for a long time. At the moment I'm studying in career college, and my subject is audiovisual communication (graphic design and multimedia especially). Daily the career college takes me from seven to nine hours including over one hundred kilometers traveling on bus. Also my health hasn't been the best but after a surgery and  few days in hospital I'm good as new and now having more time to write to you during my two week holiday.

Project T.R.A.P. comes fron Terrarium Re Arrangement Project, which is because the autumn is coming and I need to fit all my plants indoors and also fit my new plants in.

Because of my new plants and trying a new webshop I'll give you a small review of the Polish carnivorous plants webshop CarniSana, which you can find at http://www.carnisana.pl/

I left my order in the middle of the week and next day I had my first email from them on 21st of August including summary of my order, contacts and a bank account number. I paid them but during the next week they faced some unexpected problems in sending plants so they sent me my order on Monday 2nd of September, which was actually good thing for I was in the hospital when the packet was meant to originally arrive. Today I received the packet including the following plants:

Dionaea muscipula 'Bohemian Garnet' (bonus plant)
Dionaea muscipula 'Cup Trap' (bonus plant)
Drosera prolifera
Heliamphora heterodoxa x minor

All of them in best conditions as plants can be after shipping up to Finland from Poland. Also Heliamphora was shipped potted and packed carefully, plant having multiple gorgeous growing points. Two lovely small flytraps will definitely make it up for the extra week and I believe the delay in my case was just pre-winter rush when everybody wants new plants before winter.

Summary of the webshop: Absolutely great webshop. Selection is good, prices are just right, service is friendly and fast. Definitely check out if you want to have new plants before winter!


Sorry no pics for you this time butpics of my new plants and also the old ones will be included in a blog post which will be published within a week. Until then, happy growing!
