  1. A short video as a supplement ;) :
  2. A new album from my recent expedition to Guyana - we managed to "bite into" the Guyanese Tepuis and savannas a little deeper ;) After about 1,5 yrs of preparations, planning and struggling to get the ministry-approved permits to visit the Indigenous areas the project came into fruition and we were able to visit the lovely community of Paruima, close to the Venezuelan border. The expedition succeeded in reaching the Guyanese outreach of the Gran Sabana around Uchii Falls and completing the second exploration of the summit of Waukauyeng Tepui after the 1997 Smithsonian expedition.

  8. Hello Before our Akopan Tepui expedition, we took a chance to visit the Drosera amazonica habitats northwest of Manaus, Brazil. It was probably the first visit to the site since the discovery of this species. We were lucky to make a little discovery there, finding Utricularia tenuissima growing next to the other two species reported by Fernando Rivadavia (D. amazonica + U. subulata). Another species to add to the overall habitat report Many thanks to Fernando for providing us with the GPS data of the habitats! P1090444.jpg by

  14. All I can say is that they are very good at making promises, and really poor at turning them into reality. There has been a somewhat similar thread on the Polish forum recently, and it mostly revealed a terrible ignorance towards the customers who dare to share a critical word with them. I got blamed for my critical attitude on the other forum, but here I can only see a big proof to my opinion. Anyway, I've already had some bad experience with this company, and I'm not going to give them my money anymore. Not for this kind of service.
  15. Hi! After assembling a cooling system in my highland terrariums, the plants are getting into much better shape than before :). The heat waves did their job, but at last the plants now are more safe from the weather changes outside. Here some pics ;) H. pulchella (Amuri) H. pulchella (Churi) H. ceracea x hispida H. neblinae (Aracamuni/Avispa) H. minor 'Burgundy Black' H. purpurascens (Ptari) H. parva (Neblina) i H. glabra (Wei) N. edwardsiana Best Regards Mateusz
