  2. Dear Manders-san, Konnichiwa! Thank you very much for your understanding! _intentional (artificial) removing_ Kind regards from the Far East
  3. Dear Manders-san, Konnichiwa! I believe you are a great Nepenthes specialist in The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland....... O.K. To all, Don't reply about my seedlings, When I post the updates, you will know. Just reply about your experience. Dear Whitefox-san, Konnichiwa! Thank you very much for your experience!!! Kind regards from the Far East
  4. Dear Werds-san, Konnichiwa! Thank you very much for the reply! I must say the seeds/seedlings are definitely Nepenthes. I recommend you to edit your reply before I quote your reply. O.K. I will post the update. Kind regards from the Far East
  5. Konnichiwa! First of all, I am not a Nepenthes enthusiast, but I like Nepenthes. I am quite unfamiliar with Nepenthes. In fact, I have been hardly growing Nepenthes in greenhouse. I remember the disappointed look (facial expression) of the great German Nepenthes & Heliamphora specialist, who is a worldwide distributer, when he saw a dying tiny Nepenthes (only one I had in my greenhouse at that time) in my Byblis greenhouse (see the far bottom in the page 1 of the thread: http://icps.proboards.com/thread/2348/scented-byblis?page=1 ) after the ICPS international conference in 200
  6. I'm not an anime fan, so I have not watched this movie, but I know this song. I have sometimes listened to this song since first hearing the original in 1968. I'm not sure if it was a coincidence or an intentional selection. The younger brother of the lyricist (Hachiro Sato) died in the same prefecture in 1945. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6hEjB6pt-E Here are the trailers with this song. for the U.K. members for the German members https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Xm0rU7YVtI for the French members https://www.youtube.co

  8. Konnichiwa! When I grew it about 40 years ago, as Drosera arenicola (mis-labeled). It survived through the summer (terrible hot temperatures) of Japan. Kind regards from the Far East
  9. Dear Mujinamo-san, Konnichiwa! Thank you for the interesting photos! Would you cross them? Kind regards from the Far East
  10. Dear Manders-san, Konnichiwa! Thank you very much for the valuable information and good advice! Please keep posting. I will definitely try your fashion! Kind regards from the Far East
  11. WOW! I am very impressed! Dear Manders-san, Konnichiwa! May I ask a few questions? I am quite unfamiliar with Nepenthes. In fact, when I saw the pithcers in your photos in 2014, I thought your veitchiis were Bario (or Bareo) form. Please go to: http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=53485&hl=veitchii And now I am quite confused. I cannot identify which form of veitchii you have. To avoid mess for my very limited Nepenthes growing area, it would be nice if Bario clone could climb a tree trunk voluntarily. To my knowledge (very poor), The lowland form (variation): an
  12. Is the colour a bit purplish rather than black/brown? If so.....
  13. Dear Luca-san, Konnichiwa! I hope you never be bullied as a weeaboo! It sounds nice! Please add "Onsen" (hot spring) and "Ryokan"(Japanese traditional Inn) to your list. It seems the British guy really enjoys his life in Japan. Unfortunately I have no experience to eat such super expensive Wagyu (beef) though. Kind regards from the Far East
  14. I hope it wasn't a worst nightmare you had ever had.
  15. Bulgarian version: They are woodblock prints, not paintings. Original: I don't know why they know the pronunciations at Jomon Era (145th century B.C. to 10th century B.C.). I searched something for U.K. members. BEFORE I was a bit interested in the next model of the CITY, CITY BULLDOG, in those days. Unfortunately I never owned it. AFTER I can’t identify individuals!
  16. Dear School teachers and School kids, Many people consider this is child abuse, child labour, machines, robots, Lack of individuality…. bunch of negative things. But if you are a school teacher or any person involved in educational activities, this is worth watching. For other members, just for killing time…. This young British guy strives for settling into a weird country, where stores open eleven days a week, and finally he ate concrete floor. Kind regards from the Far East
  17. Dear TheCarnifreak-san, Konnichiwa! There is a potential risk. But usually the tropical Byblis seeds germinate within 2 weeks (or a couple of days) under the condition that I recommended. And I guess long-term lower temperatures and very wet condition might cause tropical Byblis seed death. Considering the location where you live, My location is advantageous than yours. The mid-summer climate where I live is very hot and humid. It might be similar to northern Australia (except dry season). The full-sunlight is very strong. I recommend you search Greg Allan-san's posts in this for
  18. Dear TheCarnifreak-san, Konnichiwa! Please go to: http://icps.proboards.com/thread/1866/liniflora-patience?page=1 Concerning cross pollination that Adelae-san mentioned, Please go to: http://icps.proboards.com/thread/4953/guehoi-tropics?page=1 If there is no supplemental light, I might recommend you to wait until April. Because full-sunlight is very important, if you would like to grow tropical Byblis beautifully. Kind regards from the Far East
  19. Dear MaxJ-san, Konnichiwa! Please watch two videos for the moment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMiMDXXaAvw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vqp9qLZQHWI Kind regards from the Far East
  20. Dear Alexander-san, Konnichiwa! That's a major "WOW" factor! What do you think of the factor(s) letting your plant so beautiful colour? full sunlight, soil pH, cool temperatures, a large temperature change between day and night, high humidity, some stresses etc. ... or combination of some factors It seems any clone could be coloured to beautiful deep red in your cultivation. (except anthocyanin free clone) Dear Werds-san, Konnichiwa! Your plant is very nice, too! Kind regards from the Far East
