  1. Quick update. This thing has gone insane flowering this year. It's been pretty much non-stop. Still kicking out buds now. I'm getting fed up of my bedroom smelling musty now though so I might cut the rest of the buds off yet

  2. This is a plant I got in 2010, originally from Borneo Exotics. It's always been a strong grower in my conditions and pitchers reliably on every leaf. Right now the peristome seems to be getting wider with every successive pitcher, and for that brief period between unfurling and folding back it's almost reminiscent of N. platychila... And here's what it looks like now that the peristome has folded back a bit: And a better view of the underside of the lid: Thanks for looking, Michael

  4. Thanks, corky! Looks pretty much like a D. 'Dorks Pink'. Richard, my experience with frost tolerance and pygmy drosera is that adult plants can withstand light frosts, even the pots frozen solid for some days. Loose gemmae (not the attached ones, however) and youngsters will die under these conditions quickly. Therefore I keep my adult plants in my wintergarden, while the next generation is grown inside at long photoperiods until spring when I adjust them to the conditions in the wintergarden.

  7. From memory it was medium sized, maybe 15 cm across. It's one of the 24 clones from Pig Hill (BE-3041).

  8. To be perfectly honest i'm quite sure if we met we would get allong just fine and i'm quite sure Dave is a perfectly genuine and decent guy. Whether he's write or wrong about basals isn't of great importance but if your going to make very bold statements about it being due to one effect or another you should back it up with some solid evidence and be prepared to discuss that evidence. Dave was, or is a 'scientist' and should be able to do that. Being an engineer, i've learnt not to listen to BS from scientists too much. I recall someone once said absolutely and categorically like it was wr

  10. Hello Manders, I'm not sure how accurate comparisons to fruit trees work for these kinds of plants... Both Nepenthes and Utricularia have literally turned themselves inside-out in relation to how they use their various plant parts compared to nearly all other kinds of plants. Nepenthes transposed their lamina to their petioles, invaginated their original lamina and turned it into a stomach! And the tendrils amazing ability to hunt for a spot to set the pitcher bud is one of the most impressive actions I've seen out of plants. Utricularia transposed their root systems to the rest
