  1. I know 3 plants in cultivation. Growers try to propagate but propagation through plant tissue culture failed several times. Only a few cuttings were made and maybe there will be some available in a few years but at incredible high prices of course.
  2. Yes I know the growers but I can't share any names. I don't want their mailbox full of people asking for a spare. It's a very difficult species to propagate but everyone is doing their best.
  3. Yes, there are only a few plants in cultivation.
  4. And I have a little extra; H. macdonaldae:
  5. Hi all, After my topic in the habitat photo section about my trip to Sulawesi, I want to share some photos I took of Nepenthes in cultivation. Please click on the photo to see the plant tags. Here we go: Cheers, Lolo
  6. Hi all, It's been a while since I posted something on the forum. I've been quite busy with my studies and other work. In August 2013 I went to Sulawesi with Alastair and other CP enthusiasts. Stewart organized this expedition. This was a wonderful adventure. We found some new locations for N. glabrata and N. nigra. We also found a new species of Nepenthes and a new species of Paphiopedilum. I'm planning to go to Borneo and Palawan in June, July and August to see more Nepenthes in the wild. I hope I can share those pictures with you in a few months. So here we go: N. maxima N. maxima upper pitchers Some beautiful N. maxima pitchers. The variety in pitcher size and coloration is huge in this species. Dwarf N. maxima upper pitcher Huge N. maxima pitchers N. glabrata upper pitcher N. glabrata N. glabrata Huge N. glabrata pitchers N. tentaculata N. glabrata x nigra N. nigra lower N. nigra upper N. nigra N. mirabilis N. mirabilis N. tomoriana N. tomoriana N. eymae lower N. eymae upper N. eymae upper N. hamata upper N. hamata N. pitopangii N. pitopangii I hope you enjoyed the photos!
  7. Thanks for the information Marcel! I didn't know Greg has these problems, excuse me!
  8. Hi guys, I was wondering if there is some more news about the trip to Cape York? I would be very interested to join the trip but couldn't find more information on the ICPS website. Just the dates (22-26July) but no itinerary or prices. I send an email to [email protected] some weeks ago but I didn't get a reply yet. Is there someone who has some more information available?
  9. I don't want to kill the moss because it doesn't kill my plants but I want to kill the botrytis. If the moss doesn't affect my plants, I don't need to use something against it but I thought the moss was the problem but it is the botrytis.. I found some herbicides on the web for the treatment of the botrytis and tomorrow I will search something in my local garden center which kill the botrytis and not my plants (I hope I'll find something good) but first of all I want to remove the parts which are infected by this disease..
  10. Yes I dug up one of the dead plants and I didn't found any other pests on/in the rhizome. But maybe, like Elliot says (below), the Botrytis is the reason of the infection. Hi Elliot, Thanks mate, went to the greenhouse a few minutes ago and it's not the only plant with Botrytis. I did some survey on the www and I think this is the reason of the death of some of my plants. I never saw this before and that's very strange because I examined my plants already some months to find the problem and never saw that damage. Tomorrow I'am going to buy a good herbicide.
  11. Hi guys, I have some problems with a species of weed in my plant pots inside the greenhouse (photos below). I thought it was a harmless species and I controlled them just by removing them with my hands... BUT the lost months I can't control them anymore, they appear everywhere: first in the pots of my Sarracenia and more specific near the death/brown pitchers. This was not a big problem for me until I saw what actually happens: First they grow in the soil near the brown parts but than they are growing on the old parts of the rhizome and the rhizome begins to rot and after a few months the whole plant dies and the whole rhizome is soft, weak and rot.. I'm not a big fan of herbicides but I don't see other options, so I'm searching for a good weed killer...Suggestions? Are there people who had the same problem and how did you solved it? Here some photos of the b******: Kind Regards, Laurent
  12. very nice photo's, I like your pygmies. May I ask you what kind of substrate you use for them??? Thanks for sharing!
