  1. Hi Dimitar , I have seen your post here with my pics and think there is something that should be said about your post: 1. The so called true Giant ( from Klaus Keller) is as far as I know coming from Harald Weiner ( not Weinert ) who was the first in Germany who did grow and sell this clone, he told me that this clone is coming from a Botanical Garden in Sidney he did think that it is possibly a triploid clone. This was in the 80s .This clone can easily be seperated from others by its ultraslow growth and its extremely big traps.but needs a long time to show these. 2. On my post there are not 2 different Bg Wilhelma clones, and I even did not write this. Its only 2 different looking plants from of the same clone. The clones from Wilhelma and Bg Mainz are the same and have the same origin. Maybe there are also others but my plants are def. same. 3. You should be a bit more careful when you write such things as, for example,that German growers like to rename the same their plants with different names or creating new ones. For me this has a very bad taste and I really do not like to read this. 4. I do not know how many years of Cp experience you may have,I for myself can look back on 40 years of collecting plants now. And believe me, I do not need to replace any name by another. But I think it is cominig with time and is a kind of name evolution. The people tend to name a plant after the source they got it from, and just this results in different names at the end. Now we have a lot new clones of cephalotus and most of them are not that unique, that you can clearly seperate them. That does not make it easier. Also many plants are sold on Ebay with many phantastic names, and most of them are grown in a Dutch nursery on the same table .... 5. I really recognize the work you do to find out the real name and source of any clone, but at least you will fail .... You can see this, for example, that most people here cannot even remember Harald Weiner, who has had the first bigger collection in Europe and was the first seller, where you could get rare plants in the past.

  2. Ada: It is not completly true . I have bought a big part of Stefan's collection plants and a part of his sarracenia seedlings last year, but not the complete collection .I could not take all the plants I would like, because I did not have the place to grow them in good condition ( but who has ) There have been many 1000 plants in Stefans greenhouses. Stefans beautyful and very well grown collection is not longer existing. It's a pity, as we always did work together and have had more or less the same stock. I will keep and grow all this plants, including many new selected clone which have never been offered before, for a while, and offer them on my list as they are big enougth to divide and to sell them.

  4. Willy: Against spidermites You should use a Acarizid like Kiron or Vertimec, and insecticide does not really work because the mites are no insects . I think Dimethoat should work too . Chris
  5. inoxy : I love this plant too, it is one of my favorites. BTW, for me it seems that this particular plant is infected by red spider mites, so be careful and keep an eye on it . Chris
  6. Karl :Tellereisen and Monkey Ass is the same Monkey Ass is my clone 8, but I think you got clone 7 so it is not the same . My favorite is Biohazard, what do you think, as You got it now ? D- Muscipula : First we wanted to name this Clone Tellereisen (what is the German word for Bear trap , but there is a other clone with this name going around, so it was not a good idea .Monkey ass was my wife's idea .Do not know why.... Chris
  7. Hi I do have a good number of these plants in my collection ,and have never seen any red color in them . They are just coming with flowers here ,so I will look a bit closer this year . Chris
  8. I have male 2 flowers of my N tenuis plant coming next days . I do not believe that there is a female tenuis in flower at this time ,but there is some hope left to find one here . I would like to create some nice, small growing hybrids if there is no chance to get the real thing . Best with something that grows at the same location as N. tenuis (like adnata or eustachia ) If you are interested to get pollen please ask me . (Please do not offer any hybrid partners )
