  1. Yes, it is grown in a highland terrarium. The xaxim is positioned vertically – a straight wall. I manually spray water onto it, and I also use a very basic drip system to irrigate it when needed (ie. when I'm away from home).
  2. I've been growing Cephalotus on a xaxim tree fern panel for about a year. So far so good. The tough part was to insert the roots into the panel. It is quite dense. And here they are now. The first plant is showing good signs of vertical growth: the last open pitcher is the top one, and the surrounding leaves are recent too.
  3. It comes from CEDEVIT dude.
  4. ...I'm more than skeptical. Any help on this please ? Thanks in advance :)
  5. Thank you very much guys. Vraev, I uploaded the picture in 1900*1200 here
  6. Sorry for the late reply. N. villosa is about 13-15 cm wide. It takes advantage of the cold nights from Northeastern France in autumn and winter (down to 5°C) because I leave the window open every night. In spring and summer, obviously it lives under warmer temperatures, though it does not seem to disturb it so far. The lighting is : 1 Dulux 865 Osram 55W 1 Dulux 954 Osram 55W 12h/day So here's a picture of the setup And a picture of the first flowers of Utricularia calycifida 'Lavinia Whateley' (the white-flowering cultivar) Cheers !
  7. Thanks a lot ! I've just made a picture with the latest pitcher to date.
  8. Thank you very much ! You're totally right, it's D. venusta.

  13. I included the pictures in a compressed file : http://depositfiles.com/files/756040 and added this one : S. purpurea ssp. venosa, unknown variety from Jean-Jacques Labat (not var. burkii according to him) Regards, Florent
  14. Thanks for the kind comments ! N. hamata and N. villosa are grown together in a terrarium under fluorescent lighting. Temperature extremes are 10°C and 24°C at the moment... Cool air is brought just by opening the window. In summer, the values are higher, but the temperature drop is the same. N. hamata is a fast grower...
