  1. Wonderful plant in an excellent pot!!! You have made a stunning composition!!!
  2. If You want a lot a plant from Your country, better if You ask on this forum if anybody grows yet carnivorous plants with locations UK (if obtained from legal trade)... let wild plants and seeds in wild!! some days ago in sale and wants section there were uk Drosera rotundifolia seeds.. and if I’m not wrong, there are some UK nurseries that sell seeds with location;-)
  3. Beautiful photos!!! Well done!!! Even they are very common, I can look at p. vulgaris an drosera rotundifolia for hours, and I have a lot of fan growing them: they are perfect!!!!
  4. Hi Rob! You say good things and I agree with You... here I don’t want to know the exactly location of those plants, but the Country... for example, when I speak about p. poldinii “Carnia” or p. alpina red “Carnia” I speak of a part of Alpes, in Friuli Venezia Giulia (a Italian Country) of hundreds kilometres... so if a man tell me that the photos were taken, for example, in Piemonte (another Italian Country of hundreds kilometres) I know that this popolation is in the opposite side of North Italy... so I don’t think that it is dangerous for wild populations... but I agree with You that using the name of the single mountain or valley in wich the plants are growing is very dangerous!! have a nice day, my friend! serse
  5. Could You tell me the location? So I can write to Italian carnivorous plants forum members of this location and ask them if they have some photos of wild plants... I’m sureI’ve red that 3 yellow spots were a typical drawn in a location, I don’t remember well if in Slovakia or in which country...so if it is true that I’ve red it should be typical of some locations of plants, and the yellow drawings should be a stable characteristic... if not, they could be an occasionally characteristics... now I try to study this thing! Thanks a lot for Your help!

    Deep purpr flower

    Beautiful plant!!!
  7. Thanks Jeff!do You know Where are they from exactly? Because I’ve never seen Italian pings with 3 yellow spots
  8. I’ve just seen photos of italian p. alpina from all north Italian country... I’ve seen my photos of the rare (in Italy) lowland form (that grows at sea level).. they all have two yellow spots fused (like in Fabrizio’s picture)... please, if You know of Italian p. alpinas with a different number of yellow spots or without it (in this case I think it could be a “p. alpina alba”) post the photos here... I’m very interested in this plant
  9. If I’m not wrong, p. Alpina in Italy have only this yellow drawing form
  10. Wonderful setup!! Are they in a greenhouse with white cover against too much sun? p.s.: the p. Vulgaris from Carnia that I’ve published in a post is the motherplant of the seeds that I gave You... Have You had a good germination?
  11. Nice to see another Italian Pinguicula so well grown!!!
  12. Thanks a lot!!! So I wait for Your answer!! Wonderful plant!!
  13. Great plants, Fabrizio!!! Nice to see our pinguiculas!! Have You our vulgaris, leptoceras, longifolia, Mariae, Apuana, crystallina hirtiflora too?

    ping ID?

    I also think it could be an hybrid
  15. Pinguicula vulgaris from Carnia, Italy

    ping ID?

    Hi! Could it be a Vulgaris or a Vulgaris hybrid? I see something similar in my vulgaris, photo taken this morning...
  17. Hi! Thanks! For this plant, sphagnum moss is only for top dressing, and it grows in 1:1 peat and perlite... but I grow 4 clones in pure sphagnum moss, with never more then 0,5 cm of water in the try, and they grow better... I also am growing 5 leaf pullings in pure river sand with always 3/4 cm of water in the try and they are doing very fine;-) p
  18. Hi!! Very interesting plant!! Could You tell me any things: is this plant self pollinating like p. chilensis (nahuelbutensis in Oliver Gluch classification)? And are the seeds of this hybrid fertile?
  19. The secret of giant pitchers?? I don’t know it
  20. Hi! I’m not an expert, but am I wrong or is there a method to distinguish p. Leptoceras from p. Vulgaris watching the flower back sepals? I grew a plant from seeds with location, maybe wild collected.. so I see the back sepals and I discover it was a p. Vulgaris and not a p. Leptoceras... an expert confirmed me the identification... if I remember well, p. leptoceras has the sepals totally separated, p. Vulgaris partially fused... Is there a similar way to distinguish p. Leptoceras from p. grandiflora? If Somebody has a flowered p. grandiflora, could he make a photo of the back of the flower?
  21. This is the second seedgrown plant, that I gave to my dear friend Matteo...in the first 3 pictures You can see the plant at the moment, just awaking from dormancy... it has done 4 flowers yet and it hasn’t still divided...in the fourth picture You can see it last summer, with its summer rosette... in the fifth picture You can see Matteo’s clone on the left, my clone in the center and p. Gigantea alba on the right (photo taken last summer)... in the sixth picture You can see the Matteo’ s clone summer rosette... in the last picture You can see my “compact” clone summer rosette... The differences between my “compact clone” and “Matteo’s clone” are here well shown;-)
  22. Hi!! How is Your Pinguicula winter rosette? Without carnivorous leaves?
  23. Thanks a lot!!! We must wait for genetic research to be sure, but it seems that we can say that p. gigantea can have carnivorous gland only on to the upper face of the leaves!! The flower of Your “Japanese clone” seems to me the flower of a pure p. gigantea... do You agree with me? Does anybody think that the flower of the second picture of N-A post isn’t of a pure p. gigantea?
