  1. Drosera pauciflora (Ivory/soft yellow colored, Malmesbury South-Africa) February 2021
  2. This species is found in the Andean mountains of Chili and Argentina at about 1500 m.
  3. From time to time some water on the table (2-3cm) and this just for an hour or so. Evaporation is reduced by the gravel on the top.
  4. Plants are in square 13 x 13 x 12,5 cm. pots. During the growth always 1-2cm water at the bottom. Bone dry in summer isn't working for me.
  5. These plants are in the cold frame (lowest temperature: -2°C.) Medium is kept wet during the growing season. Plants are in a 2 cm. layer of rainwater. Mix is LFS with perlite and quartz sand. Top layer is also quartz gravel. At this moment only the rosette is visible. The typical long leaves shall come very soon.
  6. Sown in summer of 2012 and flowering for the 4th or 5th time now.
  7. These plants are in the cold frame and kept (nearly) frost free. Lowest temperature this winter: -3°C.
  8. These 6-7 years old, seed grown plants forming nice clumps and are free flowering from March till the start of the summer.
  9. Pinguicula chuquisacensis is growing in the Bolivian Andes at 2200-2500 m.
  10. I have a male N. veitchii (Gunung Murud) blooming. Fresh pollen are available. Standard 50/50 seed split.
  11. Aphids are pollinating the flowers in my greenhouse. Each winter a few of these winter guests are able to pollinate these tiny flowers. Seeds are always viable. Please don't think my greenhouse is an aphid reserve :-) only a few are smart enough to find a warm place during winter;-) Ronny
  12. A beautiful lily growing in the darlingtonia seep-anybody know what it is? Reduced: 57% of original size [ 1000 x 750 ] - Click to view full image This is a beautiful Trillium grandiflorum. It's also nice to see the plants growing together with Darlingtonia esp. Cypripedium californicum. Very nice pics, thanks for showing. Ronny
