    Petiolaris Germination Question

    Jeff, You can try not giving them dormancy but they will reduce growth anyway ;-). In my experience, D.paradoxa (and hybrids) is the only species that can grow all year without a true dormancy but other species will require it for an healthy development and a long term conservation (more than 2 years). Kindest regards. Damien

    Petiolaris Germination Question

    Hello Jeff, You can move your seedlings in another pot if you keep enough substrate around the roots. To avoid too much stress, it is always better to consider enough space between each seeds during sowing and not putting too many of them in one pot. I agree with Marcel, heat and high RH are ok if you provide enough light. To me, the biggest challenge with young Pet.sundews is to keep them alive during their first dormancy period when they have only 1 cm in diameter. Good luck ;-) Kindest regards. Damien

    My G. hispidula

    Hi everyone, Nice topic Rodrigo! Genlisea are so amazing plants! Dead Sphagnum can work well including with G.africana. When I was in Angola, I saw some populations of this last species growing amount living and dead sphagnum whereas other populations were growing on sandy soils. I cultivation, I noticed that dead sphagnum can be really usefull when growing conditions deal with high temperatures and high humidity all year round (in a tropical terrarium for example). However a more "classical" growing media like a mix of peat and sand also works really well in the most cases. All the best, Damien

    Wonderful Christian, many thanks for sharing!
  8. Dear growers, To start the year, I would like to share with you some pictures I took today.

    disaster

    Dear Daniel, I am also really really sorry about what happened to you and your family, I was really schocked by the videos of the fire. I send you all my postivie thinkings to overcome this dificult time. Of course, you can also count on me to rebuilt your collection when the situation will be better. Friendly, Damien
  11. Dear growers, I would like to share a strange observation I made with one of my Genlisea clone from Angola. As you can see on the following picture, all the leave of this plant have small white trichomes on their surface: This clone was supposed to be G.hispidula, at least, flowers were really similar to those from the description of this species. It was growing in the Central Region of Angola at about 1.800 m above see level in pure laterite with U.welwitshchii and madagascariensis. I hope you enjoyed this strange Genlisea. Pictures of the flowers will follow soon if they want to open one day :-) All the best, Damien
  12. Excellent pics! Thank you.
  13. Hi, I am also really interested in this project. Thank you again for sharing... Regards, Damien
