  1. Winter pitchers

    Wow, such beauties! In particular spectabilis. The "body" of the pitcher almost reminds my of burbidgeae. What is that clone?
  2. Watering after pollinisation?

    Hi everyone, I'll try to pollinate my N. campanulata soon, but I have a technical question to improve the success rate. Do you stop watering the flowers in order to avoid washing off the pollen? Thanks for the advices.
  3. My orchids - mainly miniature

    Nothing new, but my Lepanthes telipogoniflora is continuously flowering, and I really like it.
  4. Where can I buy Lepanthes orchids?

    The following 2 have some:
  5. N. Veitcheii, latest pitcher

    This really is the perfect plant and set-up. And a successful fertilisation ;-) Congratulations!
  6. Seramis

    I just tried a mix with Seramis. But it's really recent, so I can't tell much about the results (ok so far, though). 1 perlite, 1 pumice, 1 pouzzolane, 1 Seramis, 1 calcareous sand + calcareous sand surfacing
  7. I never hear about that, but that's very interesting. Let us posted about your results!
  8. Hi everyone, I'm about to receive some Mexican pinguiculas, and I am planning to put some pure sand on top of the mix as surfacing. The aim is to avoid algae development. So, the question is: which sand? Calcareous (same as I'll put in my mix), or the usual carnivorous plants one (quartz)? Did anyone compare these 2 side-by-side, to have an idea of what is best? I noticed a lot of moss development in the pot where I have my Nepenthes campanulata with calcareous gravel surfacing.
  9. Good luck, ladies and gentlemen... We are not part of the EU, and I can assure you this is NOT easy! It certainly has some advantages, but you'll love the dramatic increase in paperwork...
  10. Another Ping-Wall, mini Replica from Fernando's CP wall

    Hi Ruben, Any news about this great Pinguicula wall? I think this is a brilliant set-up. And by the way, what is your "ping mix" you are using between the 2 layers of sphagnum?
  11. 2 new species from the Philippines

    Nice work Thomas! Thanks for sharing.
  12. My orchids - mainly miniature

    Probably one of my favourite. In particular because I had to wait for the flowers about 2 years, and it was really looking like grass in the meantime...
  13. My orchids - mainly miniature

    It seems the previous flower of Lepanthes telipogoniflora was only the warm-up!
  14. My orchids - mainly miniature

    Actually, I am not really interested in getting seeds. So I don't keep flowers stems when they are done.
  15. Drosera paradoxa leaf cutting - any tricks?

    Results! I've taken some cuttings of my D. paradoxa by gently pulling several leaves at the same time, in order to include the basal parts. This allowed me to keep the mother plant intact, or almost, as I repotted it at the same time. I've placed the fragments in a small box with sphagnum and a lot of water, without cover (I tried with cover but I have fungi attack within a few days) in my lowland terrarium. After about 1.5 month, I saw something sprouting. And yes, after a couple more week, I confirm it's a small Drosera. Growing very quickly, actually. I'm not going to start a nursery based on the results, but I'm very happy anyway. ;-)
