    Diosera

    Very interesting, well done! For me it is very curious a thing: the leaves don't seems to start from the Basal rosette, from the ryzome, but they seems grow from the central stalk, like some plants that don't get enough light...please, can You tell me what are Your growing conditions? And another question: are they son from the same mother plant? And if yes, what shape have their brothers? Beautiful plants, You can be very happy;-) Very interesting, well done!

  3. Thank You Manders.. Are You sure that is a giant?
  4. Good evening! How big can grow a Drosera capensis "Giant form"? I've red that can be 60 cm tall, but I don't know nobody that has a Drosera so big... Some growers days 30 cm...So I would ask to who has this plant how big is his/her Drosera capensis "giant"... Thank You!
  5. Very very interesting!!!! Thank You!;-)
  6. :-):-):-) big bug big satisfaction
  7. You are in true... I tought they were a little bigger;-)
  8. I don't now how small are them... With my baby seedling i put with a toothpich a pièce of mosquito o smallers bugs in a leaf.. But You must pay attention To not move all the seedling;-)
  9. For the shape they could Be drosera spatulata too;-)
  10. Youssu, feed them!!;-) my droseras grow very faster when they eat!! For me the seedling are Drosera venusta's babies... All Drosera seedlings are quite similar To Drosera rotundifolia... then, they gradually became similar to mother plant... But I now see the shape of the leavs, that is becoming similar To drosera venusta leaves;-)
  11. Well done!!! beautiful plant!!!

    nepenthes

    Bella pianta!!! Nepenthes x ventrata, mi sembra... Ascolta, non tenerla appesa... Se vuoi che continuo a fare ascidi mettila a terra e metti nel vaso dei bastoncini che sostengano la pianta mentre cresce... Tieni presente che puó crescere fino a 3 M circa di altezza... Lega il fusto al bastone come se fosse una pianta di pomodoro;-)
  15. Beautiful!!!! REally great!!! I have some relatively rare plants like cephalotus big boy, heliamphora, Drosera regia, P. Poldinii, p. Chilensis... But I think that the most common Drosera capensis, my first plan when I was children, is precious and an ecellent hunter!!!I love it!!!!!!!! Your Drosera broad leaves has a beautiful big flower!!!!
  16. Apologze for too much post, I'm not good with p.c.;-) Carnivine, beautiful plant!!!! I think that' stage best think growing Your own plant from seed to adult size... Especially if it is a plant like a Drosera regia!!! Well done!!!!
  17. Hi!! I've got two Drosera regia seedling... Pay attention because feeding this seedling is very important, but in artificial conditions is very easy that the preys roots and Be covered from mould... If You try to remove the insect, all plant can go away from the substrate... If all the leave is going to Be covered from mould, i suggest You to cut it..good growing Hi!!

    Pinguicula ID

    I don't see very well.. I know only that a lot of people that thinks to have a gypsicola have a hybrid p. gypsicola x moctezumae... see in google if it could be your... I know that araflora has this hybrid
  20. In Latin the "i" and "ii" at the end is the "genitive" and it means that a plant is discovered or created from a person... e.g: "Slackii" is discovered from Slack... Poldini is the sourname of an italian teacher... when he discovered that a pinguicula was a new specie, he called it "pinguicula Poldinii"..., in Latin is like English form "'s"...(e.g.: Poldini's pinguicula)
  21. Great photos!!! thank You very much!!! I'm very happy for aldovranda!!! very precious drosera and utricularias too

    Seramis

    In my experience pings grows well in an unicum mineral media... I know that some growers cultivate plants (p. hirtiflora, mexican pings) in pure seramis... I use only river sand for all mexicans, p. poldinii, p. corsica, p. hirtiflora, p. grandiflora... they grows well... here in Italy many pinguiculas growers cultivate them in pure "lapillo" (solid vulcanic lava) that is used for bonsai cultivation.. the only problem is to crush it if the pieces are too big, but all are happy of this media... and it isn't expensive I hope this message can help You... good luck
