  1. Hi!! This was my heliamphora, that I gave to a friend when I changed home... it is a nutans x heterodoxa, and I bought it with only two adult pitchers in a garden center at about 13 €...I think it could be the same plant... it is a very strong hybrid;-)
  2. Thanks a lot... my cephalotus aren’t very colourful because I live in a flat when there isn’t very direct sunlight... just 3/4 hour in summer and no a single minute from November to the end of January... the colur that you have seen is due to low temperatures about 3/4 C ... if the temperature goes below 0 C, cephalotus pitcher (and leaves too) become wonderful coral red:-)
  3. The plant is very well looking and if there aren’t many leaves is not a problem!! Do you grow it inside? I’m not as expert as Mobile, but I noticed that my plants grown outdoor make a lot of non carnivorous leaves... as Mobile has said, it is a seasonal variance... I’ve red it is also related to temperature: plants under 15 C (if I’m not wrong) produce a lot of non carnivorous leaves an just a few pitchers... plants over this temperatures produces a lots of pitchers and a very few leaves... here some photos of my outdoors growing plants taken just now
  4. They are all well looking! Only in my experience if you feed their little mouths very often they grow very rapidly... when I lived in Southern part of Italy (where winter is very warm), feeding it as soon as a new mouth were open, a seedling put a flower stalk after just a year from seed;-)
  5. No stratification for Drosera capensis... if you put them under artificial light you can sow them just now...if you grow them outside better to wait until spring;-)
  6. Hi! Don’t cut anything, it is all ok... do you live in Wales? Why don’t you put outside your plant?
  7. Hi! They could survive! Better if you can give them a minimum temperature a little highe... they need an high humidity to grow well... please, make we know if they’ll survive;-)

    Can you help me ID

    Hi! I’ve never had one, but it seems to me a Drosera adelae... it is an Australian species... pleas search this species on google and tell me if you think it is that... your plant seems in very good conditions, well done if not it could be a very young Drosera regia, but I don’t think so
  9. Hi! I’m not an expert, but I’ve seen photos of people that have a terrarium and grow together nepenthes, heliamphoras and South Americans droseras like roraimae, solaris.... so I think that you could grow these droseras p.s.: I’ve red, for example, there are an highland and a lowland form of Drosera roraimae... so you should grow the highland one
  10. Hi! When you have a little time, could you post some photos of your seedlings, please? I’m so courious to see how they are doing;-) could I ask you any things? I’ve started to sow about 5 nepenthes seeds... I’ve bought them on e-bay, so I’m quite sure they are not the true species they are labelled, but I think that they can help me to do experience in growing nepenthes from seeds.... they have germinated all... I have a little slime in the pot (like the one you cane see in your second picture)... should I remove it? Is it dangerous for very small seedlings life? And if it cover seeds, do they germinate anywhere? and the last thing: do you fertilize your seedlings? If yes, how do you fertilizes them? If I don’t fertilize them, do they will dye? Thanks a lot and sorry for my too much questions
  11. Hi!!! It it’s all o.k! It is a new root developing... this is of a different kind of roots: Drosera capensis form this ones when it becomes higher, and they help them to fiss well to the substrate
  12. All works;-) I put on the pots the upper part of a plastic bottle closed, and than I gradually remove it... so you can do as you prefer;-) better if it is a hibryd, it is more vigorous;-)
  13. 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..
  14. 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;-)
  15. 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;-)
  16. Hi!!! If you don’t give it artificial light, it is only the Autumn... it will produce pitchers again in spring;-)
  17. Interesting plant!! Well done!! Thanks
  18. Hi Lucien!!! Very nice looking plants, well done!!!The plant in the second photo is Carnivore Giant?
  19. 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..
  20. 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;-)
