  1. The second one is sold as N. x Gaya by Araflora: https://www.araflora.com/p4472/tropical_pitcher_plant_nepenthes_x_gaya_l Or by Hampshire Carnivorous Plants: https://www.hantsflytrap.com/be3725-nepenthes-gaya-1361-p.asp Regards Joachim
  2. Hello Florent, nice website you have! of course I do remember my site, and I still have a local copy... :-) It took some years of work and a move to reach the next step in cultivation. Sadly I don´t have the time to put a valuable site together right now. But f you are interested in what happens, you can check my posts in the German GFP-Forum: https://forum.carnivoren.org/forums/topic/43712-gewächshaus-nepenthes/ https://forum.carnivoren.org/forums/topic/45884-n-maxima-diverse-pflanzen/ https://forum.carnivoren.org/forums/topic/46124-n-sibuyanensis-zi
  3. Manuel Reimansteiner has them( in vitro I think).: https://www.facebook.com/floravitro/photos/p.506509483222591/506509483222591/?type=1 (Link to the Facebook-TC-group of Manuel.) Regards Joachim
  4. I am using the TFA Klimalogg pro with one sensor in the greenhouse about 15m away. https://www.amazon.co.uk/TFA-30-3039-KlimaLogg-Professional-Thermo-Hygrometer/dp/B004HZC3LS/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=klimalogg+pro&qid=1555745453&s=gateway&sr=8-1 Until now it works as expected and especially the alarms are helpful. Below 6 deg C the alarm triggers and I can look after the greenhouse heating - occurs only during the night of course, but is loud enough... Last week: Temperature last year: Joachim
  5. Comment from Thomas Carow who is not member of the CPUK-forum: __________________________________________________________ Hallo Joachim, hier ist Charles... Ich bin zur Zeit in London, und nehme am Wochenende an der lCPS Conference teil. Wenn Du Lust und Zeit hast, kannst Du gerne in meinem Namen antworten, dass ich noch nie irgendwelche Cephalotus Klone abgegeben habe und auch ein absoluter Gegner des ganzen 'Klonwahns' bin (wie ich es im GFP Forum auch schon geschrieben habe). Ich habe den ganz 'normalen' Standardklon' wie er in Deutschland weit verbreitet ist und es ist nicht gerechtferti

  7. Hello manders, very nice plants in situ, many thanks for sharing! I'm growing Bulbophyllum makoyanum as companion plant with my nepenthes. It stays quite small and has some unusual but nice flowers: Joachim
  8. Many thanks for sharing theses great and interesting photos! It looks like you had some fun there. The hybrid between N. stenophylla and N. fusca looks interesting - was it intermediate in appearence between the two parent species growing around this plant? Of course I could stand seeing even more of those photos... ;-) Joachim
  9. Hi Anorthosite, welcome here in Munich! You can get peat moss in every garden center or building center for few Euros, so it is not worth to order it online. If you are looking for pots or special substrates http://www.goetzpflanzenzubehoer.de is my choice. Joachim
  10. Hello, yesterday we made a trip to a nearby location of P. alpina at Jachenau http://maps.google.de/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=de&geocode=&q=jachenau&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Jachenau,+Bad+T%C3%B6lz-Wolfratshausen,+Bayern&z=12&iwloc=A The blue gentian flowers were abundant, but with a skilled view many P. alpina were found. Most of the habits were quite dry - as I believe due to the very dry and sunny weather we had for the last weeks. P. alpina surrounded by gentian: P. alpina typical flower: slightly different coloration: At more wet places only th
  11. This plant does not look healthy! - I would not spent any money for a sick plant with great risk of loosing it... Joachim
  12. Hi Milos, nice plant - but it doesn't look like a N. talangensis. From the pictures I would think it is most likely N. sibuyanensis (if it is a pure species). Joachim
  13. Bob, weevils for example do. I hope you can read German - or Google might translate it: http://pitcherplants.proboards.com/index.c...amp;thread=5146 In general I would search for the ant-plant relationship of N. bicalcarata: ants protected N. bicalcarata against enemys. Joachim
  14. Tony, this is not true (yet). There is a very good page in German language comparing different lights. The summarizing table at the end should be readable without german language skills: http://www.hereinspaziert.de/Sehlicht_2009/Ergebnisse.htm Compared to a good 70 W metal halide lamp, which are used quite often over here for plants, there is no significant difference in efficiency compare to good commercial available LEDs. Recent scientific results show LEDs being more efficient than commercial available Metal Halide lamps - but this efficiency won't be available for grow lights for some t
  15. Hello, I'm growing a N. eymae clone I got through Thoams Carow - at that time he was working closely together with Andreas and they had similar or identical clones for sale (AFAIK). This is a picture of my plant which looks quite similar to Francois's plant: detail of the lid: and an upper of this plant - not what you would expect from N. eymae: Joachim
  16. Since when does Andreas offer true N. faizaliana? The only known source for this plant up to now is Malesiana Tropicals. Joachim
  17. Hello Jens, very nice plant! Are you sure it is a pure N. dubia? The pitcher lid is a little bit wide (might still be an intermediate pitcher) and especially the leaf apex is different from the plants I've seen so far. This is my plant: And mine is a boy (flowering right now): Joachim
  18. Hi Dicon, wow, nice plants, especially a very nice N. singalana clone! - Can you tell us where you got it from? Thanks Joachim
  19. Hi Alexander, I didn't know you were married twice - how did you manage this? :-) Nice plants as always! Cheers Joachim
  20. Hi, these plants are dying from the base, normally a sign of root rot. Repotting in pure LFS, as Francois mentioned, is the best way to try to keep this plant. If a plant looks like it is dying from the base it is necessary to clean the roots from the old substrate thoroughly. Did you check the root and lower part of the stem? If the stem already has begun to rot it is time to take a cutting well above the rotten region - although your plant might already been too small for this. Under these circumstances I wouldn't put the plant under high light levels. I would wait for it to recover a bit
  21. Hi Sockhom, I don't know which lights you were using for these photos of your plant - but it does not look very healthy. The color of the leafs is far too yellow. It looks like nutrients are missing.You might try fertilizing it. Joachim
  22. Hi Stewart, many thanks for the informations and sharing these pictures! Do you have pictures of the leafes and stem of the "true" N.pilosa as well? Many thanks in advance. Joachim

    N. talangensis

    Hi Syble, from my experience low night time temperatures, high humidity and good light levels are necessary for the pitchering of N. talangensis. Touching the ground helps increasing the humidity around the developing pitcher. I don't think the contact to ground is necessary: Joachim
  24. Hi François, I got my plant from Andreas Wistuba in may 2005. It has increased from about 5cm diameter to about 12cm Diameter in about one year. I grow it together with my highland plants under intermediate conditions with bright natural light (west facing window). The big clone Schloaty showed at PFT isn't typical, his plant is much bigger than the other plants in cultivation and the ones I saw on photos in the nature. Joachim
