  1. Here's another photo of the scape. The plantlets seems to be sending up their own scapes now too. Here's the flowers of the plant.
  2. I have an unknown Genlisea that has been growing under T5 flourescent growlights inside and it has developed small plantlet type offshoots along the scape of the plant. I was wondering if this is a common occurence with Genlisea or if it is a result of my growing conditions... Here's a photo of the plant.
  3. I recently transplanted my biggest Genlisa (G. hispidula) to a new pot and found a bunch of broken off pieces at the bottom of the old pot. I was wondering if I could possibly get new plants to germinate from these pieces. How would I go about doing this?
  4. I took these photos some time ago and forgot to post them. Hope you enjoy!
  5. These are pics of my G. lobata x G. violacea. I was wondering whether the flowers on this plant are fertile or not? Would they self pollinate? Thanks
  6. Here are some microscope shots of my Genlisea... I find it hard to take these pictures because the outer cells have air pockets that reflect a lot of the light. It's like trying to take a picture through bubblewrap. Subterranean leaf. A stalk gland seems to seal the trap above and below the opening. A view of the stalk gland. External stalk gland. I always see a lot of stuff stuck to them. Another group of stalk glands. The tube between the leaf and the bulb of the plant. Typical Genlisea prey in the bulb.
  7. These are some of my microscope photographs of Utricularia. I have uploaded some into a few photosynths. Here's a quick user's guide on navigating the synth... The synth will take a few seconds to load because it is made up of so many photos. After the synth has loaded, hit the 'F' key on your keyboard to maximize the image in your internet browser. After the image has been maximized, a column of images will appear on the right hand side of your screen. These images are highlights taken directly from the synth. You can click on these to jump to those spots in the synth. The highlights may take a few seconds before they come to their full resolution. You can zoom in on the synth by using the scroll wheel on your mouse and then click and hold the image to move it around. Because the synth is so large, it does not work very well on older computers or dial-up connections.
