Some pitchers from my terras

41 posts in this topic

Hi there,

in the last weeks I took some fotos from my terrarium-plants and like to show them to you.

Some of the terras are very crowded, due to the fact, that the plants do grow and grow and... (Who'd have thunk? :wink:).

I'm not quite sure, how to get the plants out there some day...

It's a mix of younger and older Nepenthes and Heliamphora.

So, here are the pics, hope you enjoy them.

Great pohotos Christian, thanks for sharing :smile:

I can't view your growlist link, but that may be because i'm not a member of the Carnivoren forum ? You could always start a growlist thread on CPUK too ! :wink:

Thanks Welshy,

and yes, that might be the reason.

I posted the list now and the link should work.

Thanks again,

here are some new pics.

I took the chance of taking some photos, while I had to get the plants out of the tanks for chopping the sphagnum cover.

So, this time the background is my black photo-wall...

This plant came to me by accident.

I ordered "a portion" of N. stenophylla at BCP and got four or five plants.

After some month of growing, this one turned out to be something different, but near to N. stenophylla.

With the help of some other german growers I now can identify it as N. veitchii x stenophylla, offered by BCP as well.

Thanks to Kamil for that bonus plant.

Thanks for the post.

 

I especially like the vogelii, Any chance of a pic of your terrarium as a whole?

Could you share the setup? Which illumination do you use, how long they are on/day..

Beautiful pictures! It's so nice of you putting names on the pictures. One question though. Your 'Tequila' doesn't look like 'Tequila' at all. It produces slender pitchers, not short and stout like yours. You might want to investigate it.

Hi all

and many many thanks for the kind words. It feels good when someone likes what took hours and days and years of time....

The setup is not a very complicated one. All of the Nepenthes and Heliamphora are scattered over six terrariums.

Each of them is illuminated by five T8-tubes in colouration 840 and 865 ('oldschool', I know :wink:) with reflectors for thirteen hours per day.

I do not use any form of cooling or ventilation except keeping the window open from May to Oktober.

In the summer months the temperatures reach from up to 30 °C by the day down to 18°C in the night.

In the winter, I try to keep the daytemps around 25°C and the nighttemps around 15°C (by opening and closing the window and turning the radiators on and off).

The whole (Indoor-)setup is located in my basement, which helps me keeping the temperatures low for the highlanders.

So, here is a picture of the whole setup, one of a crowded terra and one of a neat terra.Setup_zpsiwrkmfdk.jpg

@Maciej

Thank you for letting me know.

I got it from a very reliable person from the forum back in 2011. But after watching some pics on CPPV, I'd totaly agree with you.

Do you have any idea, what that could be instead?

Best regards,

Christian

What a setup, wow! Plants are also very nicely arranged. well done, Christian. As for this Heliamphora - it's hard to tell, but in my opinion there's a heterodoxa and minor infuence.

Hi Maciej,

... possible.

A big round head on a small and stocky tube sounds like it could have both of them in it.

Whatever it is, it's a good grower in my conditions and I like it.

Thanks for your help,

regards,

Christian

Great! I especially tal x rob, and intermis. I am a big fan of small intermis plants. Amp x aristo, smallest opening ever?

I'm enjoying being able to compare plants of a similar size and age to mine that we both share in our collections, please keep them coming :good2:

Hi Welshy,

yes, I noticed that too. I think we bought our plants from the same sources (roraima, Cedric,...).

Your N. spathulata x glabrata for example looks exactly like mine. It took me some seconds to breath again, when I noticed the huge pitchers after I had opened the parcel. By the way, it's a very good grower for me, that build two new pitchers of equal size within a few weeks after potting it up.

You keep your plants in a heated greenhouse, right!? It'll be intersting to see, how they'll develope under different conditions.

Oh, and thanks for putting the idea in my head to lable the pics white on black.  :tu:

It's much better visible that way. 

 

Best regards, 

Christian

Borneo exotics sent out quite a large batch of Spathulata x glabrata a while back when they had more options like medium and large sized plants. My spat x glabrata is now vining and beginning to produce uppers.

Ah, thanks for that information.

That should be the explanation, that there are plants available beeing so huge.

I'm curious about the uppers. Please post some images, when they're ready.

I really like your H. sp. Angasima. It's not a plant you often see on the pictures - I wonder why.
