  1. Hi there! I took pictures of pygmies today as I moved them inside for the winter. They took night temps around 5C well, but now the forecast says frosts, which would be too much for them to cope with. I hope you like them!:-) drosera sewelliae drosera pulchella drosera nitidula var. allantostigma drosera mannii drosera callistos drosera enodes 'Giant' drosera parvula (front) and drosera barbigera 'Southern form' (back)
  2. Hi,Paulo! The plant you showed picture of in the first post of this topic is NOT d. esterhuyseniae, according to my opinion. It is drosera venusta. The hairs is not a distinguishing feature here. I am growing d. venusta with very little (almost none) hair and also other whitch is quite hairy, especially on the petioles. Aside from flower, it is the leaf shape that is (according to me) quite different fro d. venusta and d.esterhuyseniae. The latter one has wedge-shaped leaves, it gradually widens, with no distinct convexity, resp. curvature, whereas for d.venusta, you can easily see the curvature at about 1/3rd of a distance from the end of petiole. Of course, the deciding feature is flower and seed size/shape. I say it is d. venusta, not d. esterhuyseniae. Would not be very happy to see more mislabelled plants in ciculation. Thay are beautiful nevertheless! Best regards,:-)
  3. Beautiful plants!:-) You are a real drosera addict hehe :-)
  4. Beautiful! really very nicely coloured plants! Good job!:-)
  5. Thank you for nice comments I am glad you like the plants:-) Pato: I grow most of them in humidity house, so they receive natural light and sun from 11AM till sunset. South americans (not all of them) I grow under cool white fluorescent T5s Petiolaris love more light than our weather here can offer (summer is exception), so I grow them under artificial lights. Not fluorescent white, because they like when major part of light has wavelenght close to 580nm (yellow)- at least that is what I observe , so i use TURBO Energy Saver warm comfort lights. Hope this helps:-)
  6. Welcome, Jirko! (long time no-see)
  7. I want to share some pictures of plants I took pics of. I hope you like them:-) drosera paradoxa drosera petiolaris drosera broomensis x ordensis (taken out of TC recently) drosera ordensis drosera falconeri drosera auriculata drosera moorei drosera erythrorhiza ssp. squamosa ( I dont know why she popped up in the hetwave of early august this season) drosera graminifolia drosera neocaledonica (taken from TC recently) young drosera hirtella var. lutescens drosera ascendens 'red form' (7 months old) drosera coccicaulis drosera sp. 'Lantau Island' drosera schizandra drosera hilaris drosera coccipetala drosera regia
  8. Great work Dani! The plant looks indeed like a perfect hybrid of the parents, having inherited the best features of them (shape x colour). Thanx:-)
  9. Beautiful! Nice to see my favourite pinguicula in the wild! Thanx for sharing:-)
  10. Wow this is absolutely amazing and exciting reading! :-) The flower stalk all covered with tentacles is a very interesting feature, along with the cacti-like roots... I hope taxonomic authorities will come to a conclusion it is a new species for it looks very distinctive from other related drosera. Also, that the seeds of this beautiful plant will be available soon so it can be spread to collectors without any exploitation of the natural habitat (i think 30 seeds should do the job just fine in a matter of a year or two). Beautiful amazing plant! And congratulations to the great CP discovery!
  11. I hope you like them... burmannii petiolaris and paradoxa villosa graomogolensis graminifolia falconeri top floor of humidity house ordensis peltata (peltata,foliosa,auriculata,gracilis) x tokaiensis aliciae (very old) sp.'Pretty Rosette' tomentosa var. glabrata (acclimatisation from TC) filiformis 'all red' nidiformis spatulata var. lovellae coccicaulis madagascariensis (very old) filiformis var. filiformis dielsiana
  12. Hi! Yes, it did germinate, I had to stick the jar for 3 weeks in the fridge for stratificiation. The germination rate was not very high though. The Druids form did not germinate at all. Maybe if I used GA3, the odds would be better. Thanx for the reminder on the size. This species is much faster in TC, but still veeeery slow grower. It is very interesting plant though. Did you use hormones for germination? I will try to propagate it next week, hopefully my strategy will work. Good luck with your cultures! Keep us posted, please!;-)
  13. Thanx Sebastian! Yes, I germinate on medium woth no hormones, because seeds have the needed hormones in them already, either inherently or induced by cold/hot stratification or introduced artificially by GA3 ( still not using this method). Later when I have sterile tissue of plants that dont clump easily (mostly they do), I have to use some hormones in medium, which I call 'propagation medium'. The first one is germination medium. The composition varies for groups of species.
  14. Hey, finally I have some time and took pictures of jars. I apologize for bad quality for it is hard to take good pics through the glass and condensation. I hope you like them:-) Most of them come from seeds from Australia and will be soon replated on propagation media. drosera ordensis 'Lake Argyle,Kimberley,AU' - very hairy form, light pink flowers, 40cm flower stalk , 8cm rosette type drosera falconeri 'Palmerston,N.T.,AU' -pink flower drosera caduca 'Bachsten Creek,Kimberley,AU'- carnivorous 6cm juvenile leaves, non-carnivorous grass-like adult 20cm, white flowers form drosera arcturi 'Gelignite Creek,Tasmania'- miniature form drosera neocaledonica this one not rare but my favourite drosera dielsiana ....and finally non-carnivorous, sequoia sempervirens young seedling
  15. Here pic of my dielsiana and pretty rosette for comparison: ....apart from other differences, dielsiana gets twice the diameter of d. sp.spoth africa under my conditions.
  16. Yes, |Will, exactly that one, so d. brevicornis it is,,,thank you!:-)
  17. Hi Will! Beautiful collection. I have been growing them for a year now as well and it is the intensity of learning rather than time spent in CP care that matters. Can you please tell me what is the lasiocephala in 3rd picture, left side, 3rd from the bottom? I have one exactly like that in TC i=d like to identify. Propably a stray seed from Lowrie. Thanx in advance:-)
  18. jim,,as far as I know it is unnamed species from d. dielsiana complex. It differs fromd. dielsiana in its flower, size of flower stalk (shorter), it is smaller, leaf shape is different too,etc.....I will post a pic of the two side-by-side when I have some spare time so you can see the difference.
  19. very good looking plants! thanx for sharing! :-)
