  1. Anyone guess what these are?

    Hi, may I hijack here too. D. bassleri in the wild with tadpoles.
  2. Sphagnum propagation/regeneration experiment

    The best is you start with heads of shagnum. For a tray of 60x40 cm you need about 4 litre of them. Drill 2 holes about 3 cm from the bottom. My tray is outside. The holes prevet that the rain covers all the shagnum. The first time it takes about 2 - 3 month till the moss reaches the top of the tray. Then you can cut it with a scissors. The rest which stays in the tray recovers and it starts all over again. Don`t use any soil only the pure shagnum with rainwater.
  3. Hi, I bought my LED Spotlight from Christian Ritter/Germany. The pic shows day and night
  4. Cephalotus problems, possibly root rot?

    Oh, there is a misunderstanding. I use these cups only for rooting Cheph. rhizomes and in connexction if you repot. All the other are without it . So what I have heard about Ceph, in Australia. They always groe near or beside swams or very wet areas.
  5. Cephalotus problems, possibly root rot?

    Hi, it is hard to say what causes this trouble. I grew Ceph. for many years. In summertime they are in a tray with a steady waterlevel of about 2-3 cm. In the winter I spay them. The substrat is only wet then. My substrat consists of mainly lime free sand of different grain size, perlite and a bit of peat (about 10%) and Seramis. More and more here in Germany using this substrat. If I had the problem you have I would repot the plants in a different substrat and use maybe smooties Cups or something else like that. You can see it at the pics. Make a hole and bottem and place them in water. From bottem the water gets to the substrat. With the hole in the top you have nough huminity to avoid that even big pitchers get dry or gets rotten.
  6. Cephalotus problems, possibly root rot?

    Welcome, is it possible to post some pictures ? Harro
  7. Attention

    I send this guy a mail. This is his answer.
  8. Trying cephs AGAIN

    In a tray on a window silk with permament waterin during the summer. Much better outside, mayby on balcony. They love fresh air. The temperture is not so important. They tolerate temperatures from -2° up to +40°C.
  9. Attention

    Today I saw an offer on Ebay UK which is from Poland. Someone is trying to sell a Fred Howell Giant. The offer picture shows my profil pic from the German Carnivorous Society (GFP). I did not give the permission to publish it. The pic shows a mirror image as you can see on the pics here. The cutting he likes to sell is not from the offer pic. I still have this plant and I did not sell the clone to him. On both picture you can see a small water dot inside the pitcher (yellow circle).
  10. Hi, is this plant still to buy ? If yes,  please take the Reservation for me and tell me how I can pay.

    Regards

  11. Heat resistant

    To my opinion the experiment failt. On 21st of Feb.I put in cat litter leaf cuttings with the follwing dates: Broke Inlet 14.12.2016 and 17.2.17 Giant Klaus Keller 22.1.2017 Yamada`s Giant 9.2.2017 Donelly River 15.2.2017 Frenchmans Bay 6.2.17 None of them shows a root. I`ll put them in shagnum again.
  12. Cephalotus "Triffid Albany Black Clone"

    This is my TAB
  13. Bromeliads

    Please don`t use tap water. It´s mostly to calcarous. Rainwater is perfect. The urn should be always filled with water.
  14. Heat resistant

    Mobile showed a pic in the forum of a Cephalotus in cat litter. I try to use it for rooting. It`s an experiment so far. My windowsill nursery
  15. Heat resistant

    @partisangardener When I start it is really wet. For weeks I don`t fill up with water, so after some time the moss is only humid. If that happens before the leafs get roots I fill up again and it starts all over again.Waterlevel you can see at my last pic. Sometimes it takes month before a root appears. Dudley Watts Clone is one of them. Very, very slow. I tried rooting hormon for many times but to my opinion it doesn`t help.
