  1. Flowering again... Anyone ? Thanks Fabrice
  2. Hello, Thanks for the photos ! How cold is it at night on the peak where grow ramispina and macf. ? Fabrice
  3. you are right, you can grow it 'dry'. I've noticed it likes well drained soil, also the leaves may get brown spots if you mist too often. You've convinced me to try it on windowsill :-)
  4. Hello Chimaera, It's possible if you acclimatize the plant slowly: first use a clear Orchid pot as a cover to provide good humidity. The room temperature should always be minimum 20°c, better 22°c or above. Fabrice
  5. Hello, The first flowers of my female N. campanulata are now opened. Therefore i'm looking for N. campanulata pollen ! Thanks, Fabrice
  6. Try it and let us know. First of all, I would provide a very opened mix and keep it just moist. Fabrice

    Nepenthes hamata

    Still very small but nice. You have time until you need to repot it
  8. Look suspicious for me like most seed offers on EBay : Too much species from many different countries available at the same time... I usually buy seeds from cultivated plants. Fabrice
  9. Hi, I had a try with two of this growing tents for Nepenthes some years ago. Positive thing: a lot of space! Negative thing: you need a lot of water to keep the humidity high enough ! Fabrice
  10. Hello Marco, What about Lumen, Kelvin, lifespan ? .... Fabrice

    Horticultural sand

    ...and far less heavy ;)
  12. I would say the same but based on the last photo (lower pitcher) Reminds me of a plant sometimes sold as "alata" Fabrice
  13. I would try first from a EU provider. Far less complicated and faster. Fabrice
  14. I can't comment about Araflora but: Whatever the method used to propagate plants someone can produce bad or good quality plants, this has NOT to do with in vitro or not. Before i focused on Nepenthes, i have produced many Sarracenia in vitro and they were in general very strong and heathly, usually flowering only after 2 years ex-vitro. I have always found most Sarracenia growing like weeds - in the greenhouse - if, like said above, grown in good conditions. Fabrice
  15. Nice to see you there gab ;) This idea has gone through my mind too :)
  16. I've done it today ;)
  17. I have check again the S. McPherson book vol. 2 (including indonesian sp.) and had a look also on my diatas, densiflora, bongso...plants and this plant have clear similarities with densiflora and angasanensis. I will take time to go on more details (presence of rhizome, hairs on tendril...) Time will say!
  18. You are right corky, but N. diatas does not hybridize with flava, do it ?
  19. Hi Neps lovers, Here is a Nep i have grown from seeds i've got in 2014 from the Ebayer 'Nepentheceae' Seeds were supposed to be from a N. flava plant, but it looks something different. The leaves remind me of a N. densiflora. Pitchers look like those from the singalana like group. Maybe someone has plants from the same batch of seeds ??? Anyway i love the pitchers, can't wait until they get bigger ! Fabrice
  20. Your plant should pitcher again in Spring and Summer. Fabrice
  21. Many carnivorous plants have a dormancy break (Dionaea, Sarracenia, some Drosera) therefore they are small after winter. Your Dionaea are adult plants, they will get bigger soon in good conditions. Fabrice
