    I grow it too at home in France and it is the first all all my temperate Pinguicula to break winter rest. Mine is supposed to come from this location : Sugi river in the Hayade valley area in Muramatsu-mach Niigata-Pref., Japan http://www.omnisterra.com/botany/cp/pictures/pinguicu/0050.htm Unfortunately, I never get seeds by selfed pollination and grow only one clone

    You and I share the same likes for that. Apart from my location plants, most of my ceph collection has been reduced to those with unusual pitcher shapes or sizes.

    Pinguicula macroceras Hayade River 400m, Gosen, Nigata, Japan Japanese name:ムシトリスミレ, 虫取り菫 Typically, Pinguicula of Japan is glowing at higher elevations.But this population is resistant to heat and easy to cultivate because it habitat is lowland. Can I use correct English? I'll absolutely wrong.....( ・᷄ ︵・᷅ )

    I started these around 3-4 weeks ago from a leaf i cut from my broad leaf capensis, just to see if i could manage to grow them. I didnt take any pics after just taking the cuttings as i wasnt sure they would take. And after around a week they've grown to this. But what it doesn't show is there appears to be a new plant growing from one of the stems in there as well.

    Beautiful plant!!! In my opinion shape is the more interesting characteristic

    The same i did too a short time ago. In all cases i gave away my motherplants of Things like Queen Mary, TAB, Kingsley and so on for free to Friends. They just look typical and without shape nobody could say the Special characteristics.

    Yes me too. Its something Special. I like more the ones with an interesting pitcherform or size than the colourful ones.

    If anyone is available to help on 11th 12th Aug at Harlow Carr please let me know. Even an hour or 2 manning the CPS stand would be helpful

    Whilst I would agree with the sentiment, it doesn't help if you don't mention anything about what happened to make you feel that way. No one can learn anything if you only say "don't order from them", and it makes others with bad experiences look bad.

    The universe is growing everyday and it will continue to grow so that means more planets like earth. there could be millions of earths already out there and maybe different plants that grow to climate change and some could symbolize other things in their language like how roses are love in our earth maybe there is a carnivorous plant that could symbolize something to them also not only that even a plant would be considered a alien and can they grow on our earth/

    I am Growing sarracenia almost 7 years now without any serious problem but from Autom of 2016 a nightmare begins...Some of my sarracenia infected with botrytis(propably somehow from our vineyards ).Fist I let the pots almost dry and I increase the air movement after I was start to searching for a good chemical fungicide I begin with NEOTOPSIN 70 WG but very soon I saw some good results in infected plants but not in spores wich they can widely spread with the weaker movement of air.... so more plants infected! I made a research and I find that maybe trichoderma helps I made one applies per week for 3 weeks no results.. (careful with trichoderma grains becouse it contain very hight ammout of salts and increase the ppm of water...). I finaly find some ecological treatment from Bayer Serenade Max WP botrytis special design to stop botrytis spores and reduce the infection .After 2 months and 4 applies the new plants infections stoped and some of infeced overcome!!!I must say that after the spraying Bayer Serenade Max WP a thin withe layer cover the plant and prevent the spores to propagate and spread! Finaly I aslo tested on Drosera filiformis with excellent results! I hope to be helpful those results! Best regards, Pantelis

    I used to have one, the flowers are fairly ordinary but they're mainly grown for their leaves. They like it quite wet. Mine met an untimely end when feral pigs got into my garden, they were one of the many casualties.
