  1. Hi, many of my Sarracenia already produced some nice pitchers. Here is one of my (at the moment) favorite S. flava var. rugelli. The plant in the picture is F18 from Mike King. Some of my wintergrowing Drosera are still active, amongst them some forms of D. trinveria. Here is a picture of the flowers of a form from Bain's Kloof. Also, the first Utricularia are starting to flower. The following picture shows the yellow flowered form of Utricularia livida from Zambia I am only growing this plant for some months, so i was especially happ

  3. Hi Matt, Welcome to this most interesting of hobbies. The issue of compost is a minefield, and one which is guaranteed to both frustrate and confuse those who are just setting out growing these plants. The information you need is straightforward, but unfortunately the answer isn't so clear-cut, and so my advise would be to forget sand at this stage, and use perlite. This, combined with peat (or moorland gold which is peat anyway) will be ideal for most, if not all of your current requirements and with a ratio of around 50:50 will be ideal for Sarracenia, and many Drosera. Although many of us

  6. Hi, first the picture of the little, hairy boy than a disappointing flower. The drosera grantsaui used to open the flowers only from monday to friday between 10 am and 2 pm but it did not know, that I will be at home on monday because of eastern! So I had the chance to take a photo and I thought that this secret flower will be wonderful. Hmmm ... One of the reasons, why I like tuberous sundews, are the flowers. First a Drosera auriculata Anglesa and my favorite picture, a flower of drosera andersonia. Because I like tuberous drosera here some more pictures. First a D

  8. Hello all Been a while since I last posted anything, even barely taking any pics of my cps... Lost most of my collection over the last 2 or 3 years, due to a combination of pest attacks, negligence from who was supposed to water them during summer vacations, and bad luck, but still have some survivors. For you to have and idea of how bad it was, I just have 1 capensis left lol. Here are a few photos from some of the survivors from a couple weekends back Drosera spatulata (?), appeared as hitchhiker Drosera pulchella x nitidula Drosera scorpioides Sunday also photo d

  9. I sow mine when its fresh straight away in late summer/autumn and it seems to germinate the next year from around now to late spring early summer. I have some germinating in the greenhouse and conservatory that was sowed last year, but some are still just staring to germinate and sprout now. Below are some I scattered last year I only noticed them a couple of days ago. IMG_20140426_232656181 by Da Insect-eater, on Flickr

  10. I would like to share a video I took sometime ago on a Drosera Burmannii with a fly. However this is not a good example because the fly is too small and thus, the leaf and tentacles wasn't fully optimized. Anyway I hope you enjoy it. Best views in full hd and full screen.

  12. Interesting observation indeed! We don't have many flies here where we live, so I don't have the opportunity to observe very many. So thanks for sharing your observations on the subject.

  13. I've never heard of that ! But it is really cool ! I hope that it is gonna be confirmed ! Thanks Ormus for this observation !

  14. I share that observation, I have noticed many times that alert impossible to catch flies soon become "dumb" unable to fly properly and quite easy to catch with tweezers after escaping a vft trap (which in my observations is more often than not)

  16. What I noticed with 3% H2O2 is that it's pretty strong! The sphagnum and the seeds become white. The seeds I've treated with this concentration did not germinate, but I can not really conclude about this since I did not perform a comparative test with or without 3% H2O2. Elvis: you mention that you treat seedlings. Did you try on seeds and did you get a good germination rate?
