  1. I can't comment about Araflora but: Whatever the method used to propagate plants someone can produce bad or good quality plants, this has NOT to do with in vitro or not. Before i focused on Nepenthes, i have produced many Sarracenia in vitro and they were in general very strong and heathly, usually flowering only after 2 years ex-vitro. I have always found most Sarracenia growing like weeds - in the greenhouse - if, like said above, grown in good conditions. Fabrice
  2. Nice to see you there gab ;) This idea has gone through my mind too :)
  3. I've done it today ;)
  4. I have check again the S. McPherson book vol. 2 (including indonesian sp.) and had a look also on my diatas, densiflora, bongso...plants and this plant have clear similarities with densiflora and angasanensis. I will take time to go on more details (presence of rhizome, hairs on tendril...) Time will say!
  5. I will do it !
  6. N. flava x ovata ?
  7. You are right corky, but N. diatas does not hybridize with flava, do it ?
  8. Hi Neps lovers, Here is a Nep i have grown from seeds i've got in 2014 from the Ebayer 'Nepentheceae' Seeds were supposed to be from a N. flava plant, but it looks something different. The leaves remind me of a N. densiflora. Pitchers look like those from the singalana like group. Maybe someone has plants from the same batch of seeds ??? Anyway i love the pitchers, can't wait until they get bigger ! Fabrice
  9. Your plant should pitcher again in Spring and Summer. Fabrice
  10. Many carnivorous plants have a dormancy break (Dionaea, Sarracenia, some Drosera) therefore they are small after winter. Your Dionaea are adult plants, they will get bigger soon in good conditions. Fabrice
  11. It works also in this way if diluted. Do not use strong fertilizer - like Osmocote - to feed the pitchers, the latter would die back fast and you may have a fungi attack on the plants. Fabrice
  12. Hello Gilles, You won't easily find someone having ampullaria cuttings available. N. ampullaria are usually sold as small plants (from in vitro in my case) You should wait until the temps are above 15°c for the plants to be shipped. Hope that's help. Fabrice
  13. I agree with manders about the temps. Also it does not like to be kept always moist. My red clone grows better during summer when i have flies available for feeding pitchers. Fertilizing works fine if given as foliar spray (i use Orchid focus) Fabrice
  14. Sounds too low for me.. Temps are ok.
  15. N. bicalcarata is a real tropical plant (ultra lowland Nepenthes) Whatever the clone, you need - as already said by fltropical - ALWAYS between 25 - 35°c. From 18° to 22°c the plants will stop to grow and below, will die... Fabrice
