  1. Hi, please does anyone have experience with Wistuba LED strips for growing seedlings or in vitro cultures ?
  2. Thanks for the info. I have still the old sticker "H.tatei var. neblinae" in the pot, from the early times, when this specie was considered to be a variety of H.tatei :)
  3. Hi, i have decided to take few pictures of this interesting form of N.maxima from Sulawesi. From all of the seedling i have sown before 5 years survived only one male plant: comparison with H.tatei H.neblinae: closeup look: For more info about history of this specie visit: http://masozraverost...e/N.maxima.html
  4. Hi, my miniature form of N.maxima from Sulawesi ( 1600 a.s.l. ) is flowering. This plant is small, around 30cm in diameter with very nice pitchers. http://masozraverostliny.mzf.cz/index.php/72-prave-kvete
  5. Mine plant created flower bud !!! It is early to tell if the plant is male or female.
  6. 6ppm is very good value. Common distilled water does have about 5ppm here. So it does look the sand is free of soluble salts. But if you bought sand with limestone ( nearly insoluble in normal conditions - in pure water ), you cannot measure it with conductometer and you cannot remove the calcium by boiling it in water.
  7. Hi, i have got cleistogamous seeds from female N.truncata plant. Does anybody observed cleistogamy in female nepenthes plants ? Milos
  8. Hi, before 4-5 years i have received few seeds of this miniature form of N.maxima (1600 asl ). These seeds were collected during the expedition to Donau(lake) Poso. I have succesfully propagated this plant in vitro. http://www.carnivoro...12_22.html#Poso Lower pitcher: Tendril attachment: Whole plant: Upper pitcher:
  9. Hi , i have tried many times pine bark in nepenthes media, but the growth was poor. Please have you similar experience like me ? I have not used exactly bark from pinus pinea, but from other pinus species. Is there any difference between pinus barks ? regards Milos Sula
  10. Wow, please do you have small division of this clone for sale/swap ? I can offer nepenthes. If you are interested i can send you the list.
  11. BTW: i am wondering if Andreas will replace the plant with real N.insignis (Tayeve) not the Biak form...? I have found in my gallery some pictures of the mainland forms from my friend, but these are probably upper pitchers only - anybody does have picture of the lower pitchers ?: Mainland common form: Mainland green form:
  12. Hi Gareth, the first plant is N.ventricosa, i doubt this is a N.insignis. I am growing and propagating N.insignis for a few years and none of them does have such red coloration of peristome and pitcher.Also the shape of the pitcher and peristome is different. This is typical pitcher of the mainland form: http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b209/Lam_wn/f9350654.jpg
  13. I dont like such mutations = degenerated nepenthes which are not able to survive in the wild and even in "home" conditions they are weak grower which require more light and better care... I guess you got it for free.
  14. I have in flower male N.ventricosa "RED". If you are interested PM me. Milos

    Cocopeat

    Hi, i am using cocopeat in my nepenthes soil mix. But all the common cocoppeat bricks does contain too much salts and i must wash them in a HUGE amounts of water several times before use. I have decided to buy cocopeat which is already washed and salt free ( EC <0.3 ) I have found the following coco peats: https://www.growgarden.cz/kokos/118-biobizz...o-mix-50-l.html http://www.growshop.cz/katalog/detail/1003...sional-plus-50l Please do you have any experience with them ?
