    Tuberous drosera ID

    Thanks for helping ^_^
  2. Hi, I have this drosera labeled as "erythrorhiza var erythrorhiza" The plant is now adult and flowering, so here are some pictures: let me know if the plant is labeled correctly or if it is something different! Thanks for your help!
  3. Thanks all for the nice comments! Yes the Chipola is really awesome, one of my favourites plants! Unfortunately aborted the flower so I'll have to wait the next year to se it! Hope your "Glider" is doing great too.

  5.

  6. I think the plant needs more light. The color of the plant is too darkgreen ant the petioles are etiolate. It is probably a fungus that attacked a debilitated plant and developed in a low light condition. Try to put the plant as near as possible to the lamp, add an extra lamp, or put it outside if it is hot and sunny enough.
  7. Here is the first pitcher of my Tina/Sorrow. Unfortunately, no flowers for this year
  8. Here are some updates of this bunch of seedlings. there is a great variety of forms, some plants looks like typicals, other show a stable production of cupped traps, other plants show a very nice blueish-purple coloration. The two clones shown below are my special favourites! This one looks awesome. The traps are of a nice dark purple color inside and outside, with green petiole I'll get some second generation seeds next year!
  9. This should became the ideal valentine's day gift for carnivorous plants lovers!
  10. Flowers aren't opening more than this! And I don't understand if it is male or female. I tought it was male but how can I collect pollen? I feel so noob lol!
  11. Hi, my N. campanulata is flowering. I'm very noob at nepenthes and this is the first plant flowering, so I'm not sure on what to do. The plant is small, should I cut the flower? If anyone is interested in pollen swap the plant looks male.
  12. LMAO you are right! I personally don't like lidless sarracenia, but that plant was a gift ;)
  13. I have this one: someone said it's an oreophyla and someone else said it's an hybrid. If anyone can explain to identify this clone would be great!
  14. I really hope this is not a single episode: this autumn one of my cupped traps X royal red seedling started growinga clump of small toothless traps!
  15. You have a wonderful collection! If you have any interesting spare sarracenia seedling I'd love to swap. Check my growlist.
  16. a very promising hybrid: Sarracenia (leucophylla X purpurea venosa) X Sarracenia flava rugelli. It's a 2 years old plantlet and I really like the big V-shaped marking on the neck of the pitchers. And again, Sarracenia X "Bocca di Rosa" has a nice white and red veined troath: Sarracenia X "Cuore"
  17. Sarracenia flava var. ornata; Miramar Beach, FL Sarracenia flava cuprea x alata black tube
  18. Yes but none of the seeds germinated yet. The mother royal red produced a few seeds but they may be not vital or maybe they're just selfed royal red seeds. Let's hope they will germinate and they're the real thing.
  19. Here is the best result of last year seedlings: We will see next year what will happen with the "fused tooth X red" and "wacky traps X red!"
  20. Sarracenia minor var minor Fitzgerald, Ben Hill Country, Georgia WS Sarracenia minor; Okeefenokee Giant; Okeefenokee Swamp, GA WS Sarracenia "Bocca di Rosa" named after a famous italian song (LYRICS) First seedling labeled as Sarracenia flava var. ? Mixed; Probably Red Tubes and All Red; Sandy Creek Road, Bay Co. FL WS Second seedling labeled as Sarracenia flava var. ? Mixed; Probably Red Tubes and All Red; Sandy Creek Road, Bay Co. FL WS
  21. The large majority of the hybrids shown are created by Frangelo but I grow them because he has not enough space. The other plants were 1 year old seedlings I got as gifts or purchased from sellers. I made some nice hybrids myself but they are still young so I will photograph them next year.
  22. here is some seed grown sarracenia species and complex hybrids. Sarracenia "Cuore" (excellens X formosa) My favourite hybrid. Its name means heart in italian and it's obvious why! Sarracenia "Glider" with its giant lid and tiny mouth: A nice excellens X wrigelyana hybrid with variegated flower Another hybrid (wrigelyana X excellens) X minor it produces flowers with slightly different colors Excellens X leucophylla: And Excellens X minor: Sarracenia flava ornata "Filiformis". It produces weird spider-like traps in spring and normal pitchers in autumn: Nice and tall leucophylla: Green and white leucophylla: Huge monster Sarracenia flava, seedling from P.Wilson. Location is East of Supply Road, NC. I can put one hand inside its mouth.
  23. I don't know. My grandparents have Impatiens glandulifera but the seedpods explodes qhit the touch when thay are still green. I'll try to dry them but thay don't look exactly like that.
