  3. Hello, thanks once more for the nice comments, i think i can post up-to-date pics within a short time. The plants are sprouting out at the moment. @Mujician The plants grow through the moss without any problems. Only small Drosera like D. intermedia, D. anglica and so on must be observed to avoid overgrowing. But something happened with the sphagnum moss - since the end of the last winter/dormancy it looks dry and odd. @TheCarnifreak No, the pond is not in contact with the bog, but the bog is watered with the water from the pond. The water there is very nutrient- and lime-poor, it is cleared by a biological clarification plant. @Ean Alexander Traylor Sure, what do you want to know? Best regards Rolf
  4. Hi, thanks again for the nice comments. Here are a few up to date pics from our second bog. Best regards Rolf
  5. Hello, by and large would i say there is no major difference to see. The pitchers colouring and form seems better pronounced under outdoor cultivation. And the pitchers developed outdoor are of course stronger and robuster than that one in indoor cultivation. Yes - all the plants, excepted some of the hard drosera (D.rotundifolia, D.anglica, D. intermedia and hybrids) are potted. Mots of the plants are spending the wintertime in a heated Greenhouse. Best regards Rolf
  6. Hi, thanks, for the nice comments. It's not the first time for my heliamphora growing outdoor, but its the first time for the plants growing in the bog. A few years ago i had all of my heliamphora in outdoor tanks during summertime. Our second bog was planted in spring last year, the heliamphora have been there from april until september this year. In the main i am very happy with the results, apart from a few small plants which havent come along very well. For this reason i will leave very small, young plants in the tank next year - all the others well developed and etablished plants will i put again in the bog next spring. Best regards Rolf
  7. Hello, i just want to show a few pics from our two bogs. The smaller bog, planted in Spring 2008: The bigger bog, planted 2003: You can find much more pics on our website http://www.insektenfang.de in the gallery. Best regards Rolf
  8. Hello, thanks for the nice comments. The H. elongata has produced their first adult pitcher approximately 8 month after receipt. No, the first shown neblinae is not from Andreas (perhaps about indirection), its a clon which dont have hairs inside the pitchers, instead of this the pitchers are inside covered with wax. Sockhom, i agree, the spec. Amuri seems to belong to the same family like pulchella or minor, but who knows? No, there are no hairs in the inner sides. No, i dont feed them, and they dont obtain fertilizer. The tank is lightened with 4x54 W T5 bulbs, color 840 and 865 mixed proportional 1:1. But i have to say that the H. heterodoxa was lightened with a metal halide lamp until a short time ago. The distance to the T5 bulbs is between 15 an 25 cm. best regards Rolf

  10. Hello, here are a few new pics fom the tank. Drosera roraimae Heliamphora sp. Amuri Tepui Heliamphora tatei var neblinae Heliamphora heterodoxa x ionasii Heliamphora pulchella and Heliamphora minor Utricularia longifolia epiphytic at xaxim back plane Nepenthes maxima Heliamphora tatei var neblinae and Heliamphora heterodoxa x ionasii Utricularia alpina Tank left side Tank middle Tank left side View in the tank Carnivorous Plants in the Tank at the moment: H. spec. amuri tepui H. exappendiculata H. ionasii H. nutans H. elongata H. heterodoxa H. heterodoxa ptari tepui H. sarracenioides H. minor H. pulchella H. tatei var neblinae H. heterodoxa x ionasii H. heterodoxa x minor D. aliciae D. roraimae D. capensis D. spatulata D. prollifera U. longifolia U. alpina U. lividia U. reniformis N. singalana N. maxima And a few corollary plants like orchids, tillandsia, bromelia, a small ant plant and some ferns and unknown plants that are growing aut of the Xaxim back plane. best regards Rolf
  11. Hi TyFone, thats no problem. Yes, the utrics are potted directly in the sphagnum, all the other plants are in pots which are counter-sunked in the sphagnum. best regards, rolzan
  12. Hi, the utrics are u. reniformis typ small leaf, u. longifolia and u. livida. There are of course no plants in the tank which needs dormancy. best regards, rolf
  13. Hi all, thanks for the nice replys. @Tranchette - what plants do you mean? Many plants (several ferns and others for me unknown litte plants) grows out of the xaxim plates, the other plants are planted by hand. @Mikei - as posted earlier sphagnum grows very well under artifcial lights. The other thing is that the moss is always very wet, due to the raining and fogging systems. best regards, rolzan
  14. Hi all, here are a few new pics form our highland-terrarium. The tank is totaly new arranged, we have removed all the big Heliamphora-hybrids. Our big H. heterodoxa was sadly killed by a root fungus. :-( The tank is now basically planted with many juvenile Heliamphoras, 2 Nepenthes, a few Droseras and Utricularias and some corollary plants. The tank is watered by a raining-system (lucky reptile super rain), the humidity is provided by a fogger (lucky reptile super fog). It comes with a closed water circulation, so we have additionally installed an Eheim external waterfilter. The air agitation is done with 2 pc-fans which are integrated in the cap. sorry for my bad english best regards, rolzan
  15. Hi Greg, all the plants, excepted D. californica, S. purpurea, S. flava, S.oreophyla, D. rotundifolia, D.anglica and D.filiformis, are spending their Winter-time in a heated Greenhouse. best Regards
