  4. Let's start with some photos ! This is the side of the greenhouse dedicated to Nepenthes. For most of the time it lies in the shadow, but probably the sunshine arrives in some way to the plants, since they're coloured and healty. All together The near side of the garden Here, where the sun is powerful and direct, I've put rubricorpora, heavy veined, black tube and all that requires a full direct sun to be well coloured.
  5. it should be as the S. flava var. ornata/var. rugelii intergrade [F199MK] but I've not receive it with this label, so I call it simply S. var ornata / var. rugelii intergrade

  9. Thank you Andy for sharing it with us !! As the librarian of AIPC Italian CP Society, in front of this book, I can only leave with no words. And as a engraver (instead, I engrave wood) I appreciate those wonderful artworks !
  10. thank you very much to you all for the nice words !! I hope to gratify your eyes with some good pics in the next incoming season ... ... by now, let our plants make a good sleep
  11. thank you very much guys ! Now I've only to wait... and to keep my eyes open on health of my lovable plants there are sleeping
  12. Welcome in my brand new greenhouse !! Finally, since 3 years that I was wishing it, now it's the magic moment ! Now I can sleep quietly and safety, while outside there will come the rain, the snow, the hail, the wind, the grasshoppers, the neighborough's cat, the indiscrete eyes of the curious ones, the cigarette's ash of the man who was living up my flat, the rough sun which burn out my nepenthes (which killed half of my lovely ones last year)... so on, now that is. I am happy to introduce you MY NEW GREENHOUSE !!! Some technical details: Perimeter: 220 x 360 cm Summit height: 235 cm
  13. Very stunning !!! S. oreophila x leucophylla is one of my favourite hybrid ! Thanks for sharing
  14. Here is an update of my setup. PC fan is working all day at minimum voltage - mist maker 10' each hour.
  15. Thank you for your kind answers ! Respect to the photo here linked, I've installed a PC fan working together with the fogger, 10' each hour. I've put gravel on the tray too, but humidity don't seems to grow. I've probably to isolate more all the plants, maybe with plexiglass around them. Lowlander I have are: bical, albomarginata, rafflesiana, truncata, ampullaria, gracilis. All the rest was intermediate / highland I know the better is to divide them, but I'm trying this and I 'd like to know if someone else have maybe tried :)
  16. Hi to all ! In last years I was growing my Neps in classical method: a lowland terrarium and an highland one. But this time I want to try (after some discussions with friends growing in this way) something else. I've bought a MH (Metal Halide) lamp for 250 W, and nothing else as artificial lights. All plants are together (lowland with highland) under this lamp. The lamp is distant far from the apix of the plants +/- 45 cm In a little room, where during the day I have 23/27 °C and in the night 18/20 °C I provide to humidity with a mist maker, working 10 minutes each hour. Humidity 55/70
  17. It seems very nice !! But the Mac users as me... ? how can we do ? No one can make a version for OSx ?
  18. Ho to all, I wish to share with you some cp in habitats I've seen during my last holidays in Trentino Alto Adige, Italy. All plants have been seen in Val Badia and near areas. As I am not a great pinguicule expert, please, help in give them a name. I think they are all P. alpina and P. vulgaris. Have a good trip ! FIRST LOCATION I think they're all P. vulgaris My very first seeing !! In my carnivorous life !! I feel very excited ! Don't you see ?! SECOND LOCATION In another location, but I think it's again P. vulgaris. Flowering is completely past, but you can see somethin
  19. thank you for sharing this wonderful images ! What a big pitchers !!! And colours !!
  20. Andreas, you've left me with no words. And what absolutely fantastic habitat are Tepuis. Can I tell you a thing ? I think you have one of the best works in the world. Here we are, in our gardens, in our greenhouses, looking in our terrariums.. ... and you there, sleeping on the top of those stunning places, among Heliamphoras.. thanks for sharing these emotions, Andreas !
  21. Your plants, Marco, leave me always stunned !!!!! How nice is N. densiflora ?!?! and of course N. albomarginata, one of my favurites, and N. hamata... maybe one day. I'm waiting in these days for the N. tentaculata.. I hope one day it will be beautiful as yours... Sirs, Marco is one of the best growers we have in Italy ! yes yes !!
  22. Thanks Marco for sharing this very nice "springly" photos ! Very nice synthomps of reborn ! This is to remark how different is growing plants in a greenhouse: you live at the mountain, with -10°C in the greenhouse in winter, and you're plants now has already started to grow. Instead me, I live at 0 mt s.l.m., near a lake, and my plants are more or less sleeping again !!! But some signals I have too ... great plants Marco !
  23. Thanks Jim ! it's a work by an italian guy, known in the italian forum as "upvibration" (max).
  24. Thanks Paolo for your nice and appreciated words ... some of these plants arrived from you too ciaoo!
