  1. Yes, better outside... what species is it? Protect it from direct rain and let the substrate only humid but not too wet;-)
  2. I agree with Ian.. the plant is making hibenaculum.. wait a little until the leaves start to dry and than you can remove the dry ones;-)
  3. Hi, Dimitar! Of course, your plant is wonderful!!!
  4. Very interesting and beautiful plants... thanks a lot!
  5. Hi! I’d let all like it is now... when the plant make a stem and become high it makes this kind of roots that fix it to the soil;-)
  6. I totally agree with you!!! I haven’t a greenhouse or a good sun exposition (due my job I must change home every 2/3 years) so the black or giant clones in my growing conditions are just like typical ones... but Cephalotus with distinctive pitcher shapes (as Dudley Watts and its wonderful peristome) are very well looking even in my poor growing conditions;-)
  7. Wonderful plant, in my opinion one of the best clones!!! Only a question to people who grow (or know) it: is it true that it isn’t a vigorous clone and it is very slow growing and very difficult to riproduce from leaf pulling? A friend that has grown it told me those observations, but I don’t know if he had a bad division that never has grown well for him! Thanks a lot Mobile for the link and congratulations to Dimitar that has registered this wonderful clone
  8. Wait for nepenthes experts answer... it seems to me sun or light burn.. does the sunlight is stronger now on your windowswill?
  9. Roraimae is true... but it hasn’t a location;-)
  10. I think you can do it just now;-)
  11. If you cut a leaf and put it in live sphagnum in a plastic box closed (with temperatures about 20 degrees) it should work in around 15 days... the box mustn’t stay at direct sunlight;-)
  12. Yes, it is normal... dosera rotundifolia makes a lot of leaf pullings;-)
  13. Hi Natale!!! Beautiful shoot!!! Very happy for you Best regards, Serse
  14. Hi! pinguicula x Tina is very easy to grow, but you must know some things... it is a mexican pinguicula and it needs temperatures between 5 and 35 C... so you should cultivate it indoor in colder months... It needs a lot of light but not very strong direct sunlight, but it is not a problem for you If you grow it with orchids... I suggest you to grow it in a mineral substrate (pure sand for acquarium, pure volcanic lava or mixed mineral soil). Water: always 2/5 mm in the tray when it has carnivorous leaves. When it has non carnivorous lives it is like a succulent plant and you should water it only once every lot days, when substrate is completaly dry. The harder part is decrease water when it starts to produce non carnivorous leaves and increase water when it start to produce summer leaves... but don’t be afraid: p. Xtina is very tolerant and easy to grow and mineral substrate help a lot;-) Don’t feed it, it doesn’t need it to survive and growing well... in spring and summer it will catch a lot of fungus gnat;-) If I’haven’t hanswered to all your questions don’t hesitate to write me;-) p.s.: it is very dangerous for the plant shipping it with temperatures below 4/5 C
  15. Wait for an expert, but it seems to me the hybrid you have said;-) ! I don’t think it is a pure lowii!!!
  16. Hi Rob! Thanks a lot for your help and very useful photos!!
  17. Thanks a lot, Darwiniana and Rob! I only grew drosera spatulata “Ahipara Gumfields, Northland, New Zealand” and it had longer and narrower leaves, so I’ve tought it couldn’t be a spatulata ... maybe another spatulata form or tokaiensis as you say!! ;-)
  18. Good morning! A friend bought a genlisea and in the pot has born this sundew. It grows in a terrarium. my friend think it is only a very common spatulata. It is very very slowgrowing plant and I think it could be a South American sundew. Could you help me in identification? I’ve only two photos of the plant. Thanks a lot!
  19. Thanks a lot for your answer!! Anyway your English is better than my Have a nice day, Serse
  20. Good evening! I’ve red different opinion about drosera hamiltonii, if this plant is self-fertile, if it needs hand-pollination or If it needs cross pollination to produce seeds... has anyone in the forum direct experience in producing drosera hamiltonii seeds? Thanks a lot! Serse
  21. Hi Lucien! I’ve seen just now... nice shape
  22. Amazing plants, Dimitar!!! thanks!
