  1. I've been quite away from the internet community lastly, but I've just stumbled upon that information: http://www.araflora.com/p599/sun_pitcherplant_`heliamphora_macdonaldae' How sexy is that for a Heliamphora lover! Hope we'll finally see it in many collections, and can't wait to see the hybrids people will make with that species. Hopefully, Gert will manage to propagate and sell it in 2018 as claimed. I didn't see it anywhere on the forum, my bad if I'm wrong: http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.php?/search/&q=macdonaldae

  2. Edit: This Sphagnum is Sphagnum fimbriatum, it's growing almost choked by surrounding S. palustre. For the first time, i see sporophytes on some of my Sphagnum. The spore capsules are so small I barely noticed them. They grow on a thin species that ocassionaly manages to keep itself alive in a pot of a more robust species of Sphagnum. I think there are only 3 strands alive in that pot. I'm not sure but I assume the species is self fertile, i would be surprised if I had both a male and a female clone of that plant. I'll try and germinate the spores, just as experiment. Would be nice to see the moss develop, but I'm pretty sure it's not easy to make germaninate. Any tips are welcome!

  5. This is a really short, but amazing video showing the spore ejection from sphagnum. It was apparently a mystery how they got the spores so high, until they filmed it at very high speed and saw that the capsule actually developed a vortex ring, and with that could send the spores much higher than just a straightforward squirt.

  7. The amuri clone has opened its flower now, still a bit of expanding to do but looking really nice Looking forward to the colombia clone opening is flower next and my alpina is about to open its first flower soon. Hopefully I'll be able to try some crosses between the three plants :) Mark

  8. Well I thought it would should be time for another update, jamesoniana hasn't opened its flower yet but the bud is growing nicely, I've also recieved another jamesoniana from amuri tepui and after a little investigation I found out my other jamesoniana should be from Colombia. He's a pic of the colombia one And one of the amuri tepui Mark
