  1. Hi! I’ve found on eBay this auction... does anyone know this “clone” and its characteristics? https://www.ebay.it/itm/Cephalotus-Follicularis-Lasyba-Giant-HUGE-plant-dozens-of-growthpoints-/283365927353?nav=SEARCH It seems to me a very well grown plant very similar to typical form from carniflora... but I’m not an expert... another question: how big can become a typical form pitcher of a mature plant in excellent growing conditions?
  2. Hi Jeff!! Thanks a lot! I’ll do so;-)
  3. Wonderful plants... I love purpureas
  4. Hi Jeff, hi Pico, thanks a lot! my p. Giganteas have not problems, they are too big for be damnaged for fungus gnat larvae... I had a lot of sharides in other butterworth substrate (pure sphagnum moss), but I have used bacillus thurigiensis, and removed the single larvae.. at the moment no problems, the small seedlings grow well too

    Sundew dormancy

    Hi! This two plants don’t require dormancy... You can keep them indoor on a very bright windowswill or under artificial light with 2 cm of rain (or distilled) water.. Drosera Aliciae need warmer temperatures, Drosera capensis can survive light frosts... but it due e come back from roots the next year... I suggest You to keep them indoor, never under 10/7 degrees ;-)
  6. Thanks a lot, Rob!! At the moment there are a Lot of fungus gnat!! Strange thing!
  7. The first time it flowers to me

    Sundew with no dew

    Hi! My Drosera capensis giant too is growing always outside, minimum -5 C... it is still green and alive, with a very very little dew due to the frost... the most leaves are without dew... my friend that lives in mountain sent me photos of his capensis... they die every winter and grow again in spring... but he told me that a year ago, when he had -11 C and all the water an the peat was an ice cube, they all died definitively;-)
  13. Thanks a lot for sharing these beautiful photos

    about D. linearis

    Hi! How are You? I’ve just down my Drosera linearis seeds, and I’m interested in know Your and other members of the forum experiences in Drosera linearis cultivation.. how is the hibernaculum? Thanks a lot
  16. Merry Christmas to You and to all carnivorous growers
  17. Thanks! So yes, it would be queen of hearts x king of spades
  18. happy holidays!! Wonderful photos!! Can I ask You a thing? Your nepenthes Robcantleyi is queen of Hearts x king of spades? Because, seing its pitchers from the side, he seems to me very similar to nepenthes nebularum...maybe it is true that nepenthes Robcantleyi is an hybrid and that nepenthes nebularum features come out in the second generations... anyway, I think that Nepenthes Robcantleyi is maybe the best loocking tropical pitcher plant
  19. It could be a spider mites attack ...
  20. Really beautiful and well grown plant!!! Well done p.s.: I’ve wrote You an e-mail last Saturday
  21. No, they seems me not carnivorous plants..sorry
  22. Good luck!! I hope Yours plant will be beautiful and healties!!;-) please tell me if bacillus thurigiensis kill this pest;-)
  23. Hi! I don’t see the net in the photo... this year I’ve had some problems with a pest that I didn’t know and that I have not identified...it is a little larvae, just bigger than fungus gnat larvae, that make in the soil (sphagnum, peat etc) like a net, that bright in direct sunlight... if you see the soil in the night, with a artificial light (the one of your phone) You can see the small larvae white with their black head that are eating soil and plants... they killed me a p. Antarctica and a small p. Gigantea, and ate a little of a cephalotus... I’ve killed them with a biological product, nemathods, that don’t give any problem to carnivorous plants: bacillus thuringiensis ssp. Kurstaki (I hope I’ve don’t made mistakes in writing this names:-)) the nemathods kill the pests about 3 days after you put them in the soil. I’m not sure You have the same problem, but I’ve told You my experience;-)
  24. Beautiful flower!!! Good job!
