  1. Hi, very probable gnat larvae!
  2. Hi Serse, this is the shoot from the root of your plant. It's very impressive right from birth. Ch Natale
  3. Hi, Do you have any available seeds or little plant of this clone? Ch Natale
  4. I had never seen it before, truly gigantic!!!
  5. Hi at all, Here it is not very humid, then I'm lucky because I have a single balcony completely south. I will use the fertilizer (ox blood) on other plants, it is a shame to throw it away, while the cactus I will leave it dry, it will feed only on the typical humidity of the winter of the house. Thanks a lot for your reply. Best Regards Natale
  6. Hi Gary, I repotted the plant in early spring, I put a base of expanded clay on the bottom, the soil a mixture of acid peat of sphagnum and universal soil mixed with expanded clay, I do not use a specific fertilizer for cacti but the generic one (ox blood or other), the plant again this year has bloomed a lot and has become taller like every year. This year I noticed a lot of ants on them that I got rid of.
  7. Hi Gary, The problem is only on two ribs of the plant, only on one side, the part is smooth discolored to the touch, this morning I tried to clean the orange stains with a little alcohol but they don't come off
  8. Hi Magnus, I am in southern Italy, here the temperatures even in winter are very mild, the cactus was born and raised here, I have always kept it exposed to the south and always outside, no particular care, water every week sometimes with fertilizer, more often in spring and summer, nothing more. Could I do a treatment with some specific product?
  9. Hi at all, every opinion is welcome, we are in a forum and we are here to help us with our experiences, thank you all for this. Today I noticed some worsening, I think it really is an infection, if so please suggest me how to proceed, here are some photos unfortunately taken with the smartphone that accentuates the colors a little, note the orange spots. Waiting for opinions and solutions, thank you all. Regards Natale
  10. Hi Gary, the plant apart from the transfer that I had done in winter, I always kept it in the same place with the same care, the only thing that makes me doubt is that most likely I turned it on itself, so as you say ..... I hope only the lesser evil, a sunburn rather than an infection Many thank's for your reply Regards Natale
  11. Hi at all, I have a problem with my plant, this year it has this discoloration on two sectors and it seems to be fading, any idea on the type of problem? remedies? Many thank's

Cheers Natale

  18. Many thank's The plant is really blooming for its growth and its pitchers.
  19. Hi at all, every year this plant amazes me more and more, in this session the pitchers are becoming white, the green veins are disappearing and some picthers have a pink brushed on the edge of the hat: Ch Natale
