Dear CP/TC fans!:-)

I took shots of some new cultures in jars today. Besides the species, that I have already posted (and thankfully, are grown into big plants by now), I did some sowing on gel few months ago and would like to share with you the pics of seedlings and plantlets:

drosera villosa (propagates well without PGR)

2 rarer d. spatulata varieties:

d. spatulata var. gympiensis (the time needed to germinate this spatulata variety is the longest of all spatulatas. Usually other varieties germinate within 20 days. This one took almost 2 months)
Posted Image

d. spatulata var. bakoensis (a very nice pygmy-like sundew, replated)
Posted Image

d. tomentosa var. glabrata
Posted Image

d. regiaPosted Image

d.kaieteurensisPosted Image

d.trinerviaPosted Image

d.graminifolia (the difference in growth rate for TC and non-TC plants is striking, these are a month old/5cm)
Posted Image

d.camporupestris (great germination rate, a fast grower as well)
Posted Image

d. alba seedlings
Posted Image

d. ultramafica seedlings

The gel you are using, can we buy this somewhere online?

Most onlines seem to be selling it by the 100kg or 1ton lot ! :(

this is the nearest to 'domestic' that I could find :

This would be more affordable
but out of stock, expected in 21days, keep an eye maybe !

Else search for food additive E418 = Gellan gum, aka Gelrite, Phytagel, Kelcogel etc.

Gellan gum, also branded by few suppliers as AppliedGel, Phytagel or Gelrite,
is used primarily as a gelling agent, alternative to agar
