  1. Beautiful plants very well grown!!! Excellent job!! Could you tell me anything about drosera hamiltonii? Does it produce seeds as capensis or does it need cross pollination between two differents clones? How do you grow it (temperature, water?) your hamiltonii seems very healty!!
  2. This little winter Dudley Watts pitcher has just opened this morning!! I love this miniature!! Of course plant from Harro;-)
  3. Hi! A little update... my plants are just waking up... p. gigantea alba has opened today its first flower of the season... p. gigantea seedgrown (that one I called “compact”) for the second time, has divided itself... it will flower later in the season... it seems to be a peculiarity of this clone, because its mother and its sister (that I gave to my friend) first flower and then divide themselves, like my p. gigantea alba.
  4. HI! Utricularia sandersonii, utricularia bisquamata, utricularia blanchettii, utricularia subulata, utricularia flaccida, utricularia fulva are all small ones and quite easy to grow... there are a lot other species interesting and small... personally I like utricularia calycifida very much... it shouldn’t be difficult to grow or very tall, but I’ve never grown it... I’ve only red about it;-)
  5. Hi! Those seems to me sun burn... how long do you have this plants? Are they new and do you have put them immediately in direct sunlight?

    Nice looking plant!! Well done!!
  7. Hi! North facing windowswill is not a good expositions for dionea, drosera and other carnivorous plants... could they have a lake of light? Do they keep direct sunlight? Please, put here some photos, they can help people to answer your question ;-)

    Tuberous Drosera

    Hi Harro!! Great plants, well done!!
  9. THanks a lot for sharing! Wonderful photos... and I appreciate a lot the introduction to the photos
  10. In any case, wonderful strong plants!!! Thanks a lot Macjei!!!
  11. 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;-)
  12. 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:-)
  13. 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
  14. 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;-)
  15. 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;-)
  16. Hi! Don’t cut anything, it is all ok... do you live in Wales? Why don’t you put outside your plant?
  17. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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;-)
