  1. Yes, you’ve said the true... it is important to start with a very high humidity (also 100%) and then to riduce it very gradually, making some holes (about 0,5 cm of diameter, every day one or two. After about 10/15 days you can remove the plastic bag..
  2. The ssp. Corsica too... this ssp. grows in Italy too, in places where there are some quite cold winters (night temperature of 2 or 4 degrees below zero for at least one or two months, with higher temperatures of around 8/10 C for about 3/4 months)... so keep them as typical rotundifolia’s seeds;-)
  3. Hi! It seems Drosera spatulata to me too... but maybe the flower seems a little bigger than my spatulata’s one, I don’t see well... here I put some photos of a white flower form that I grew in 2014/2016... I hope it helps you;-)
  4. Hi!!! If you don’t give it artificial light, it is only the Autumn... it will produce pitchers again in spring;-)
  5. Interesting plant!! Well done!! Thanks
  6. Hi Lucien!!! Very nice looking plants, well done!!!The plant in the second photo is Carnivore Giant?
  7. Hi! They are temperates pinguiculas, they need cold stratification... you can sow now or in November/December outside... you can use peat and sand, pure sand, pure volcanic lava..
  8. Thanks for sharing! Very helpful;-)
  9. Hi Carambola!! Thanks a lot for identification!!;-) the bug you have seen is a springtail... there are a lot on my sarracenia, and very often they fall in the abyss;-) in my opinion it is very interesting to see that, either very far from its natural habitat, a very common purpurea is a little world of small creatures;-)
  10. Hi! Just now I was looking my purpurea venosa with the help of a light... in a pitcher with a prey, in the water, I’ve seen a lot of small animals that swam in the water around the dead bug... probably they help the plant to digest the preys... sorry for the quality of the video FFC920BC-9F42-4DE9-ADD1-89DD9801F3B8.MOV
  11. Hi!! I can’t answer your question.. I only suggest you to grow Drosera capensis from seeds... in my experience, droseras grown from seeds are healthier and stronger, because they are acclimatated to your growing conditions yet;-)
  12. Very nice and well grown plants!!! A pleasure to see them
  13. It is all ok... in the center you can see the hibernaculum... it is going to be dormant;-)
  14. Great satisfaction to grow this plant from seed!!! So You obtain this plant from only 10 seeds?!!! Great job!!! And thanks for your photos, very useful!! I’ve got a little truncata, bought last october... my dream is to grow from seed this plant! I think that your plant hasn’t flowered yet because it needs more time... I red that n. robcantleyi queen of hearths and king of spades flowered at about 10 years old (from seed)... I suspect that truncata is the same... I’ve also red that the seedgrown cross between king of hearts and king of spades flowers at around 3 years old... and that nepenthes nebularum (supposely a parent of n. robcantleyi for who think that this plant is an hibryd between n. truncata and n. nebularum) also flower at about 3 years... but I’ve never red anything about nepenthes truncata flower age;-) I love nepenthes truncata!!! p.s.: do You still have other two seedlings or they have died? I put here the photo of my little little truncata, growing outside on my windowswill... I’ve cut off the lids to feed the young pitchers with ants;-) I put for you also my five seeds supposely of n. truncata (I bought them for e-bay, so I don’t have a lot of expectations);-)
