  1. I’m not an expert, but I have a few cephalotus clones... I’ve seen similar things in plants that kept too hot... if it is the cause of the death, the plants will grow again from roots... if Ada is in true (and I hope for you he is wrong, but I know he has a lot of experience and so it is easier that I’m wrong) your plants are dead:-( good luck!!! p.s.: sorry for my bad English

    Yes, aphids;-)
  3. Hi!! You should put a stick in the pot, near the stem of the plant, and use some string to fiss the stem to it...your plant is a climbing nepenthes, it’s wild parents use plants and trees as sustain... Like a vine plant;-) If I’m not be clear, I’m here;-)
  4. Wonderful plant... you should put a stick to sustain the plant... if you don’t do it, next year your nepenthes could’t make pitchers.. p.s.: in winter, if you don’t give addictional light to your plant, it will not make pitchers... it is ok, due to the few hours of light;-)
  5. I’m not an expert... it seems to me a very strong and nice hybrid... when night temperatures go below 15 C, keep it indoor... the compost must be always moist, never wet... you could put some mm of water in the try, than when the try dries wait 1 or 2 days befor put in it new water... in winter, if you don’t give the plant additional light, the plant could don’t make pitchers... it is all ok, it starts make pitchers again in spring... sorry for my bad English, I hope you understand me;-)
  6. Hi! You should keep it indoor, in a very sunny windowswill;-)
  7. Hi! Really nice plants... it is a good sistemation, but I’d prefer to put outside those plants, they are very vigorous (if I see good, d. capensis alba, d. aliciae and utricularia maybe livida ... don’t put them directly under the direct sunlight of the hotter hours of the day;-) if You don’t have a very sunny windowswill, you can put those plants in this sistemation this winter;-)
  8. A little update... today I divided my plants... p. gigantea alba is 23 cm in diameter, my seedgrown “compact” is 18 cm in diameter.... p. gigantea alba division is about 15,5 cm in diameter... “compact” division is about 16,5 cm in diameter. pictures: 1) p. gigantea seedgrown and division 2)p. gigantea alba and division 3)p. gigantea alba mother plant 4)p. gigantea seedgrown mother plant
  9. I don’t see them very well, but they seems to me heliamphora seeds
  10. This year I’ve seen a similar thing with some temperate pinguiculas from gemmae... they are 1/5 than the ones that I grown from gemmae last year

    Dionaea "Wire"

    Wonderful plant, Lucien!! Well done!!
  14. The p. gigantea alba produces seeds... in my experience they are a very small amount, about 25/30 seeds (self pollination)... Now I should know if they are viable or not... I must notice a strange thing: For obtain seeds from p. Gigantea purple flower I can self pollinate the plant since 2 days after the complete opening of the flower... in my growing conditions, with my white flower clone, I’ve lost about 6 flowers until I understand that it is ready to pollination later: about 5 days later than the complete opening of the flower!
  15. Very nice!! Well done!!!
  16. Great photos, Jeff!!!! Well done!!!

  19. Very interesting plant!! I don’t knew it! Thanks for sharing!
  20. The “compact” Gigantea from seed has flowered just today... here I put some photos... the p. Gigantea alba has divided itself... maybe my p. Gigantea alba is not a sterile clone... in the next days I’ll discover it
  21. It is a very strange weather.. I’m in Udine, near Venice, in North-east of Italy... here the bigger amount of rain is in November... it is a very strange thing that rain a lot in April-may!!!!
