    It's possible but it can be as well H. heterodoxa x minor. The H. heterodoxa x nutans clone I own tends to produce much bigger nectar spoons.

    Also, I wouldn't put much faith in labelling of supermarket plants. I remember getting couple years ago H. heterodoxa x nutans from Matt Soper. At some point it ended up being virtually identical to my H. x midoxa plant. So which plant is valid and which isn't? Guess we'll never know.

    Pictures for comparison:




    In any case, wonderful strong plants!!! Thanks a lot Macjei!!!

  2. 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;-)

    Thx for advise. Yes, I grew it indoor as I have no consistent sunlight here. 

    Your pitch looking good and red....

    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:-)

  4. 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





  5. 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;-)

  6. 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:tu:

    if not it could be a very young Drosera regia, but I don’t think so

  7. 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:yes:

    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

  8. 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

  9. 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;-)
