    Hello Some time ago I Found this nice population of Drosera intermedia. The site was quite small but there where many plants. The plants where growing in peaty sand near a pond. In the winter the whole location is probably very wet or partly submerged. I also noticed that the plants where much smaller then the plants I grow myself. They were only 3.5 cm high. Some close-ups: Overview:

    I can,t see any red in the leaves or dewy glands,so it looks like an alba to me,they are very common and cheap.they arrive in most collections as hitch hikers,posting doesn't, t do drosera,s any favours either,it,ll pick up soon

    Hello all, Recently (and luckily) purchased an aristolochioides and it appears to have suffered damage from sudden Winter cold or over-watering. Growth of pitchers has stalled with existing pitchers dying and budding pitchers stopping and curling back inward towards the leaf. Previously new growth appears to have brown/orange spots with brown regions emerging from the stem - see pictures (browning from stem has stopped advancing though). I re potted in clean (not sterile) dead, long fibre sphagnam (live may have been better in retrospect).12 hours of bright sunlight (not direct) and artificial light (3000K @ 3000 lumens) with distilled watering and constant 85%-92% humidity in a terrarium - temperature is at 25 degree with an appropriate drop at night. My key concern is that the dying pitchers and the presence of brown/orange spotting. Should I be giving it palliative care at this stage or euthanise it? Josh Picture 1 - Base of stem Picture 2 - New growth (also has spotting on the reverse side)

    Wow! The near-black flowers are incredible. What plant are they from? Is that their actual colour, of is just the lighting? Good work!

    When I got this plant in spring this year it had two pitchers, they were pale green and about an inch if that, now after hanging from my tree in my garden, it's grown new ones and slightly different in size and colour! I have started bringing it in at night now. I'm so chuffed how it's changed, especially as it was my first pitcher.

    Hello. I'm definitely not a succulent expert, but the cactus looks fine. Maybe it got too cold or wet? Sudden increase in sun or heat? If it's not getting any worse, I wouldn't worry. The other one (maybe a Haworthia or sempervivum?) definitely looks like it's being eaten. The damage looks like molluscs, but the black specks look like insect droppings so I'm not sure. You could try slug pellets and/or a systemic insecticide?

    I’m not an expert... it seems to me a very strong and nice hybrid... when night temperatures go below 15 C, keep it indoor... the compost must be always moist, never wet... you could put some mm of water in the try, than when the try dries wait 1 or 2 days befor put in it new water... in winter, if you don’t give the plant additional light, the plant could don’t make pitchers... it is all ok, it starts make pitchers again in spring... sorry for my bad English, I hope you understand me;-)

    I agree. D. filiformis. Smaller than tracyi should be. Plus anthocynanin in the tentacles.

    Yeah these are simple Drosera filiformis in my opinion

    This is a hybrid I created back in 2011, of the two different plants I have this one is the most attractive with a stunning striped peristome and a very nice red coloration in both lower and intermediate pitchers. Nepenthes bokorensis x (veitchii x lowii): This is an upper pitcher:

    Thanks for the answers! But I have to admit that I'm frustrated. I was dreaming of reading dozens of different methods and find one that would make me say "bon sang, mais c'est bien sûr!" (something like "Ha, yes, that's the way!"). I have the feeling that some of you are keeping their secret tricks for themselves... C'mon ladies and gentlemen The basis of my question is actually that I am wondering if treating seeds with fongicide or H2O2 could reduce the germination. We are only starting to understand in detail the interactions between plants and other organisms, like fungi. And I did see someone - can't remember where, sorry - hypothesizing that some micro-organism could help germination. Thus treating the seeds could actually decrease the germination rate. Looking on internet, it seems the most common method is just dead sphagnum without anything against mold. But what if mold starts to develop? - except removing the source of infection, of course. Any fongicide to recommend in Europe? Unfortunately, it seems that Fongarid is not common at all here.
