  1. But you don’t have nephentes seeds, so follow any guide regarding nephentes will only succceed by pure luck. Your description of the seeds as well as your idea about stratification fits perfectly for sarracenia. If it is not a temporarily confusion and the seeds were sold to you as nephentes it is a scam.

  3. If it's throwing out pitchers on a regular basis then I would consider it as being happy. Light wise, you are correct in that in lower light levels the pitchers stay greener and larger.

  4. Your comment regarding it looking like it's on steroids might not be far from the truth if it is a TC grown plant During the hotter weather you are less likely to get fungal issues on the plant but the colder, darker winter weather can cause them, so always adjust your watering conditions depending on the season. I usually keep the water level lower and the saucer empty for longer during colder months. Cephalotus dislike change, taking time to reacclimatise, so if you find somewhere it likes growing then keep it there if possible.

  8. A Hoverfly posing on a Delosperma. I don't regard these pollinators as prey for the carnivores. This one was a real poser though.

  9. This is a mix of about 6 units of inorganic material to 1 unit of peat. The inorganic materials are pumice and perlite. In addition to that I keep the top parts of the pots purely inorganic, so the main peaty mix starts from about 10-15cm below down to almost the bottom. The bottom part is again purely inorganic.

  10. That's most likely a Carni Flora ceph. I've not heard of any issues with them.

  13. Hi, for repotting and above all to preserve the plant and my skin, I did this: from a Brico shop I bought corrugated cardboard with which I wrapped the plant by making many layers and keeping them firm and compressed with cloth tape. After this first step, I then wrapped the plant with thick, stiff cardboard and held everything together with duct tape. When all the thorns were safe, I created a mountain of soil on the floor with the help of two pockets of soil and placed the plant on its side on top of the soil. So I took off the old pot and removed the old soil, I put in the new pot, the terracotta and some soil, and getting help because this operation is impossible on its own, we raised, as if it were a lever, the plant and the his pot in an upright position, this was the most difficult moment, I believe that only the plant weighs more than 100 kg, afterwards everything was easier ...... This will surely be the last repotting ... Sorry, I used translate ...

  16. I always found it strange that John Hummer failed to mention the wide mid rib as a defining character in the cultivar description.
