    The insectivorous Cuban endemic: Pinguicula jackii. Happy I saved it for cultivation. Just a few seeds was sent to me by anonymous donor. The species in now safe by in-vitro culture too. Pics from 2015.

    I used small paint brushes in the past, but switched to cotton sticks. These work for me just fine and they are cheap and disposable, so no need to clean them. During the pollination season I keep them in ziplock bags to avoid cross contamination. Verzonden vanaf mijn iPhone met Tapatalk

    Thank you! The spectabilis is from Borneo Exotics; I only know it as their 'giant' form.

    If they are showing signs of growing, then yes. As an aside I plugged my outside bogs two weeks ago and they are now almost to level, so Sarracenia can cope with wet conditions quite easily, but in a greenhouse you get an early start which can be jeopardised by a cold snap.

    Bulbophyllums would love the conditions, but they dont vine as such (but will climb up things by spreading) and most of them dont smell nice...

    Hi there, and again, I can show some pics of my Nepenthes and Heliamphora. Here they are, starting with some heli-shots: Thanks for watching, best regards, Christian

    You won't find it at any of the large garden centre chains, your best chance would be a local independent.

    I really like your H. sp. Angasima. It's not a plant you often see on the pictures - I wonder why.

    Hi all and many many thanks for the kind words. It feels good when someone likes what took hours and days and years of time.... The setup is not a very complicated one. All of the Nepenthes and Heliamphora are scattered over six terrariums. Each of them is illuminated by five T8-tubes in colouration 840 and 865 ('oldschool', I know ) with reflectors for thirteen hours per day. I do not use any form of cooling or ventilation except keeping the window open from May to Oktober. In the summer months the temperatures reach from up to 30 °C by the day down to 18°C in the night. In the winter, I try to keep the daytemps around 25°C and the nighttemps around 15°C (by opening and closing the window and turning the radiators on and off). The whole (Indoor-)setup is located in my basement, which helps me keeping the temperatures low for the highlanders. So, here is a picture of the whole setup, one of a crowded terra and one of a neat terra. @Maciej Thank you for letting me know. I got it from a very reliable person from the forum back in 2011. But after watching some pics on CPPV, I'd totaly agree with you. Do you have any idea, what that could be instead? Best regards, Christian
