    I've had this plant a few years, growing it in an unheated greenhouse and bringing it inside in the winter to avoid freezing temperatures thinking I was doing it a favour. It grew and grew, but never flowered. This winter it got forgotten about and took a tough frost. The leaves died, and I rushed it back inside and hoped that it might recover. You can see the old dead leaves still there. It looks as though the cold shock was beneficial, as it has given me a fantastic display. It has been growing on a windowsill, hence the rather odd inflorescence shapes. IMG_3674 by tom_499, on Flickr IMG_3684 by tom_499, on Flickr IMG_3678 by tom_499, on Flickr

    This time I'll be presenting plants originating from Cerro Neblina. Some of them appeared earlier already but I feel that the update is needed. Heliamphora parva (Cerro Neblina) This is Wistuba's clone. I have no further data on it. It's amongst the most solid parva clones in my collection in terms of growth speed. Note the highly variable nectar spoon sizes on each leaves. Newest leaf has the biggest spoon. Heliamphora ceracea (Cerro Neblina) I simply love this species as it's so unusual and pretty in its' simplicity. My plant has exceeded 20cm in height and stays this way for the time being. Heliamphora x [ceracea x hispida] Its' newest leaf has much wider opening than the previous ones. I feel that this plant has much bigger potential to reveal in the future.

    Hello, I'll post what happened with my Cephalotus for those who have the same doubts that I had. At the end I let my plant bloom. The flower started to grow in February 2017. Then in May 2017 the flower looked like this: I daily self-pollinated the plant. In July 2017 I got 13 seeds and planted them newly collected. During August 2017 the main plant was very weak and without signs of growth, after this the main plant died superficially because it developed another three points of growth from the same rhizome. Actually in February 2018 the plant look like this: And what happened with the seeds? Actually 3 of 13 have germinated well after aproximately 7 months. Fortunately the plant survived and some seeds germinated successfully despite being a self pollination. Next time I'll try cross pollination with another cephalotus that I bought. Hope you like the post!

    Hello everyone after my very long absence! Since there are couple days of holidays in Poland I've decided to devote a little bit of free time and take some pictures. Heliamphora pulchella "Very large & very hairy" (Amuri Tepui) While still quite young and small, this plant starts showing some nice pulchella characteristics. Doesn't look very well at the moment but I believe it'll get there with time. Heliamphora huberi (Angasima Tepui) Very nice and elegant clone of H. huberi. Refused to grow for me for a year or so but tough times are finally over with the appearance of new nice growth. Heliamphora "Flamingo" Ok, there's no need to talk much about this abominable plant. Picture says it all :) Heliamphora exappendiculata "Giant bubble" (Aprada Tepui) There's always a good time to show fresh pictures of The Monster. A bit boring, maybe, but I simply adore this plant!

    Hi folks, I noticed there were no great, modern websites for carnivorous plant hobbyists and beginners. -At least nothing with a responsive, easily navigable design. So, I built the Carnivorous Plant Resource - something that I would use and that I hope becomes a valuable tool for the community. It's a mix of a plant database, Carnivorous Plant Society calendar of events, and blog resource. Looking for your feedback and info contributors to flush out the database! Cheers, and happy growing!

    Great to hear you've got your money back, although it's a shame either way that the plants were sent off towards a certain death. I'm guessing PayPal are more likely to properly look into a case the higher the disputed amount. I'm still waiting for my Utricularia praelonga, David. Will you ever send it? It's only been about nine months...

    Hi Dean, thank you. I do spend a lot of time in there, especially these last few weekends dividing and repotting. I can't wait to see everything in full growth again!

    If you stratify, don't just put the seeds in the fridge, this is not stratification (in fact you should be storing just about ALL your seeds in the fridge!). Sow them in a pot of wet medium and put the pot in the fridge. In order to stratify, the seeds should have swelled up with water first, which is why refrigerating dry seed does not work. If you're in doubt, what I always do is split the pack in half, plant TWO pots, put one in the fridge for 4-6 weeks, and the other one straight in its growing environment. If you're lucky the warm pot will have good germination as well and you end up with two! :) As stated fresh seed often germinates well without stratification. M.
