  1. Glad you liked it , was great to hear what he said, have been to the site where he did the experiments, they were carrying them out at the time i was there in the nepenthe's garden, interesting to see the camera set ups pitchers tagged and cover to see what was deposited ect /
  2. interesting point Marcus you make , seems to point to the article again about certain matter in growing conditions , i too find it the same as you
  3. seem's you use it a lot ' typical' for some thing you dont like much ?? your not interested in location seed, so when there ready to be sent out you dont want any ok no problem !. its easy to send seed out with location names because that's where they are from, ,its not like its giving out a set of GPS points to the site ,its a generalized area in which that plant is found, like Mount Frankland National Park , dont mean you will insistently be able to find the plants , its a very big area to see and to look around even if you know . I think you mean nosence article , well seeing it was edited by Allen Lowrie , Phil Man , Greg Bourke & Richard Nunn, ,are you in-fact 'stating ' that you know more about cephalotus , habitat, sites and location and plants, than these people ?
  4. werds the plant is D.hamiltonii , the smaller one you see are just young ones ,interesting what plants grow with or close area cephalotus ,many tuber drosera grow near by as well in many sites and many other sundews, pygmy 's is one in very high numbers at many cephalotus sites .
  5. yer why not keep them going , as long as all know its not just 1 plant could be many and variable , there all great plants
  6. your plants have come a long way Dimi , there looken good mate great job, , now to get some colour into mine after all that hot weather, seems i have to play catch up to you a lot these days :)
  7. there limited to there particular needs to live in there habitat ,is quite specific ,and why they just dont grow any where, , would think that before man stumbled around and made farm land, and crops and towns in these areas , there would have been loads more places they grew in abundance
  8. these are plants several Km away from Coal mine on the other side of the inlet area
  9. there are no cephs other than these around this area, even though the soil , light and other aspects are suitable form some walks I did looking at Tuber drosera , at the top of the cliff and over the road , they are only in this small area ,( they tend to do this a lot ) , that is slowly being eroded away . there are other ceph locations near by , only a few kilometers away as the crow fly's, ,but they are not ones that colour like Coal mine plants .
  10. A few plants near the summit of Mt.Victoria in Palawan the type of habitat that there were found in around these rocky out crops
  11. Some one spread the seed, very much dough that , the location is quite remote , only a short distance 30km from the small town , chances of some one even being on the road way back 20 /30 years ago from a trip to Perth and dropping seed at this location would be impossible I would think ,if you had seen the area back then of which i did and have , mostly dirt tracks , and know you joking about the clouds right :) I would suggestion, is migrating birds would be the explanation my self, from Perth crossing into our Sate looking for water food in dough times., even that over 3,000km would be a long shot !.
  12. Moto yes Jeremiah Harris as actual photos and vid of the shrew out of the pitcher , the jungle rats look different as far as the one seen in Borneo !!, and not sure there here , only know of the rat being in Borneo in study's done there , . this is Palawan different location new , so could be a new specie who knows !! at the time we climb this , there had only been 20 odd people up here ,so no dough there is going to be a lot of discovers over the next 10 years, new plants, new animals, new orchids, we see all ready, new lots of stuff . from the summit ,you can see other mountains,these are non climb ones as well who know what will be found on some of these , just hell hard to get to and climb i would suspect .
  13. cant help nature , .lucky most sites are well protected and 99.9% or people have know idea where they are or how to find them so will be safe for long long time .
  14. we did see the sun dew there , but not in large numbers only in small colony's
  15. this is quite in depth , and fairly long, so if you like to be well informed this is for you very very interesting data by Charles http://flashstream1.jcu.edu.au/vod/tess-13-seminar-sep25.mp4
  16. a triple post omg it getting worse , may be some one can delete a few of these please, only pressed the button once true !!
  17. we have known about this location area for some time ,15 years or so, its been quite hard to get the location directions, ,we had 6 or so possible sites , all of which either have been lost to drought or natural attrition , unclear, this was the only active site we could find on this trip , we now learn that this plant which is only supposed to grow in Western Australia only , has immigrated to South Australia some 3,000 KM away east , a friend recently said he had reports of it found as far away or mid north Wilpena pound , another several hundred KM away , quite remarkable . would have to see the plants as its easily confused with the local D.peltata

  20. Its very hard to even see the amount of damage on this video , you needed to be there if you know what i mean, , if and only if the rest of the soil dose not slide away , the plants that are left , and there are 2 good patches left , will expand, BUT , is what i think will happen, happens and the soil that is extremely just literally hanging on barely , slides away then, its gone for good. you need to know that under the soil is just coal rock, no roots or grass or trees can penetrate it to stabilize the remains soils, and the water seepage flows on top of the coal rock face , underneath the soil , ,is why it slid off in this storm . Marcel you remember the fist section of coal mine , there is only may be 20% of the soil left hanging precariously , another storm and it would slide off, if it has not all ready happened, as above that is no plants and very little soil left , the other section past the big rock , remember , the whole soil slid off the rock face , a bit further down to ward to boat ramp , , really is going to happen here to , well over 1/2 of that area where those ceph were is gone, Richard is going past next week will stop there and take some shots to see if it same or worse . this is the area I'm talking about where the soil has slid off the rock underneath , this is what i feel will happen to the second section sooner than later, i hope not really , its happened here , so is possible just possible it will continuous ,as it has all ready started !. hopefully is stopped for now, new present day photos next week will tell us, so fingers crossed . sorry for all the doom and gloom , but its just a very important site to me and many others , and just feel helpless to not to be able to do any thing !!.
  21. probably good to even put into the right thread would be good as well
  22. Marcel , you ever had one of those days when just nothing you go goes right , think yesterday was one of those day
  23. wet lands containing large amounts Byblis gigantea
