  2. Hi everybody! D. arcturi is definitely not easy to cultivate. Mine died because it simply gets to warm here in summer... I went to NZ by my own. ;) No, I'm back in Switzerland. Just arrived a few weeks ago. I still have to get used to the tempertures here. Bit of a harsh change.. ;) Michael
  3. Hi, I d like to share some pics I took during my New Zealand trip in November/December. All of those pictures were taken at the Fiordland border on the Kepler Track in the south of NZ. D. arcturi In lower areas you can find D. spatulata, D. binata and U. dichotoma: Can anybody remove the "h" in "spathulata" in the title topic? Michael
  4.

  5. Hello, ...and I'm looking for pollen. Any interesting offers? Michi
  6. Hi Thank you all for your answers! No, it isn't absent or inactivated. The gene for the encoding of the protein which is responsible for the synthesis of anthocyanine mutated and encodes a false protein. This new protein is not able to synthesize anthocyanine anymore. Means that if the plant is heterozygous, it is red because the other gene is still encoding the right protein. If the plant is homozygous recessive, it is green because both gene are defect. Is there another field report showing the habitat of the heterophylla form? Could you post a link if you know of another one? Would be
  7. Hi James Thank you very much for your answer! This is very interesting. Have you got any pics of this place?
  8. Hi Not many answers so far... ;) But I need your help. Does anybody else know a place where S. purpurea ssp. purpurea f. heterophylla has become the predominant species? Michi
  9. Hi, Short introduction: I am writing a research about Sarraceniae and their prey. My hypotheses were that green plants catch different insects than red or yellow ones and particularly that red plants are more successful than green plants. I compared the prey caught during this summer of several Sarracenia species, mainly variants of S. flava. I slashed the tubes (always at least two tubes of one species) and analysed the prey. The interval between the measuring was around two weeks. The identification of the insects was really tricky because the prey was often already digested and not anymo
  10. Thank you very much! I use peat mixed with coarse sand (1-3mm), quite a simple mix. ;) Michi

  13. Hi, Very nice plants. I like the gibsonii flower! Are you sure about D. mannii? The leaves are very rotund shaped. But i could be wrong... Here a pic of my mannii: Michi
