  1. Hi Mark,

    Thank you for compliment. :)

    You can saw my winter growing on the photo in my topic ( Southern windowsill, no additional extra lights (maybe a little bit from terrarium with the chameleons) Temperature and humidity you can see here (every month has its own sheet). Soil mixture is peat:silica sand 1:2, in the pot is approx 1cm drainage and no water level through all winter time. Watering only from the top, just to make the soil wet. Maybe once every three or four days.

    This winter will be different due to buying dehuminifier.

    You can see this year´s seedling on previous photo too. They are not quite tall, but looks very healthy. I think that yours seedling are bigger than mine. ;)

    Merry Christmas to all


  2. Hi Mark

    I sowed several seeds of R. gorgonias in mixture of peat and silica sand 1:2. They germinated very quickly in three weeks.

    I´m not using any chamber or special lights or anything else. Using square 4x4 cm pots filled with the soil and put in 1cm of water. Seeds were sowed on top and slightly pushed into the soil for better contact. Success in my conditions is 99,5%

    Download/open attached file (xls) and you can see temp and humidity of growing conditions.

    I have seeds only on northern windows sill. Just direct sunshine (if shining). Air movement? Seeds needs any? ;-)

    No special conditions to germinating :)

    But seedlings require other conditions

    Happy growing


  3. to toimeme: big Roridula is at outdoor cultivation. In full sun. Pot is standing in 1cm of water. Sometimes is without any water level. At this time has 3 big and 5 small heads. And 12 flowers of course :)

    I hope to some seeds to get from them.

    Small plants are at indoor cultivation. They are on the southern windowsill - full sun. Method of cultivation is the same as in case of mature plant.

  4. You grow the plant in which Czech replublic? Europe? Also how you get you the pameridea there?

    I don't know about another Czech rep. :-) Yes, in central Europe. :-)

    The Pameridea were gifts with the plant. And how the Pameriidae get to him - I don't know.

    Today's photo of seedlings - they are at indoor cultivation on southern windowsill. At outdoor cultivation is only the big one

  5. Some really nice looking plants.

    How old is the one in flower? It looks very healthy and vigorous.

    I have a batch of Roridula seedlings, but with the exception of the Dentata seedlings they all have a red tinge.

    Are your plants in full sun?

    I'm not sure, but I thing it is about 3 years old plant. It was a present from my friend. Big plant is in outdoor cultivation, but the seedlings are behind southern window. Maybe I try to place them in full sun.

    Off topic: Have you any seedling of R. dentata?
