  1. I've noticed some nice pitchers developing in good colors. These plants are new in my care and they really brighten me up. Glad I've been poisoned into Neps ha! Nepenthes Viking (Tish NP 13) From my friend has color very nicely. Here's the development. 28 Aug 15 06 Sept 2015 Nepenthes Lady Luck : Nice color on this young pitcher Nepenthes Rebecca Soper : Biggest pitcher on the right so far The leaves remain bronze greenish or bronze maroon.

  3. Hi, a pic would be good if possible, I find cephs don't need spraying and can be grown on a windowsill . I grow mine on a southerly windowsill and sit the pot in about 2 cm ish of water during the warmer parts of the year. A bit difficult to know the conditions it was grown in before you got it, if it was in high humidity and low light it would probably need to be acclimatised slowly to low humidity and high light for example . Edit Mark you beat me to it ;-)

  8. Two weeks ago me and my family went hiking and exploring our beautiful mountains. Well, look what did I find. Little pings growing near waterfalls in tiny cracks in massive stones and moss. I would say this is Pinguicula Vulgaris but only because that´s the only temperate ping I can think of. Please, correct me if I´m wrong. I guess you can´t escape carnivorous plants even when going away to the other side of the country. And as this was my first sighting of a carnivorous plant in nature, I was so, so happy. I didn´t know they grew in such shady locations (the whole time we were there

  10. It's nothing unusual in nature, try it with any other genus / species of plant They don't all develop equally.

  11. The advice Matt gave you is correct, not all deliveries go to plan unfortunately and as you are aware he runs a very reputable nursery.

  12. Back in November 2013 i purchased what i thought was spathulata x dubia from a well known European shop as a typical 5-8cm young plant. I think it cost about 8 euro. I cannot remember if it had any juvenile pitchers on it when i received it, but if it did, they soon died off after potting the plant up. New leaves started growing moderately quickly, but it would never pitcher. It kept on growing happily enough though, and now almost 2 years later, the main growing stem is almost 2ft high with internodes now 7cm apart. Last week i noticed that one of the pitcher buds had actually start

  14. Hi all, I've finally got all the equipments in place. I mention a long time ago that I want to switch from T5HO to LED. I was aiming at low cost cheap leds to save electricity $ cost and reduce heat. My 2 feet T5 HO each is drawing 24watts. I have 4 fixtures that sums up to 96 watts. I was actually planning on replacing them with all LED. A meter strip of 60 LED draws 14.4 watt. To replace the the T5HO and fully utilise the empty space in my grow rack. I would need 10 strips of LED but short ones like 0.8 meters which i sum up to 10watt each T5HO : 4 x 2ft tubes = 96watt ( light up 70% o
