  1. Haha indeed I hope the plant will survive...
  2. A bird has snaped off the growing point of my quite expensive rob
  3. Yes exactly, My bigger clones also died without any abviouse reasson! Maybe someone knows a big clone the produces really high pitchers and also witstand the heat etc?
  4. I grow my Darlingtonia also on the floor of my greenhouse in full sun al day long and in a black pot. Today it was 42°C Celsius in my greenhouse. But small heliamphora's with the juvenile pitchers doens't like this and they burn/dry out and die! The bigger ones and especially my neblinaea even seems to like this! Darlingtonia: Got this one forum Pieter (Lucifer from this forum). Al my other different Darlingtonia's also died without any reason. This is the first Darlingtonia, that i can keep as a normal sarracenia! It grows in pure peat... Heliamphora:
  5. Here some pictures of today:
  6. My Leah Wilkerson is putting up some flowers
  7. This capensis "Broad Leaf" has a diameter of 25cm Regards, Mark
  8. Thanks for all the positive replies! The rhizome is not that big, but it has many growing pints, so a lot of pitchers making the plant big. But due this fact, and the fact that the pitchers are lasting too long (1.5 years or soo), I have to trim down the whole plant this winter, beqause the crowns can't get any light and the old pitchers are in the way! (Same thing for my big heliamphora see: http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=48192&st=0&gopid=331572entry331572 Picture: (luckely i now see slow, but new growth!)
  9. I had to trim the whole plant down, beqause the new growing points dont get any light and the plant stopped growing for months! Now it's slowely starting to grow again.
  10. My 'S.purpurea ssp. purpurea f.heterophylla, anthocyanin free', some pictures of last summer:
  11. Wow, those plants have very small nectar spoons indeed! Do you put your plants also in full sunlight during the summer? And too go back at the lighting: If you use only red and blue with LED it seems too work fine, but i find the purple light very unatractive! I bought a compact fluorescent lamp i while ago from 'megaman' http://www.megaman.n...mpen/mm15609-19 And this lamp also has the same purple light, what seems too be the only colours that plants need. I assume, that there is enough of this in regular compact fluorescent lamps, beqause a saw that many people use these normal bulbs for there plants. Ps. So does somebody know the right LED for plants, but for the eye is a normal white/warm white light? Regards, Mark
  12. Yes normally it would, but beqause i held the plant outside all summer long in full sun on the rooftop, it seems to compensate the lack of sunlight in the winter. The nutans even put up a new flower, here's a picture of it (shot the picture 10 minutes ago ) Regards, Mark
