  3. Hi guys, Thanks for comments! I was away for a while. D falconeri x ordensis is bigger now and there are typical signs of both parents. Long petioles after D. ordensis and wide laminas after D. falconeri. When you cross two very different plant like these 2 above it's really amazing to watch the final mix :) I will add some actual pictures in some days I hope.
  4. Great! Thank you very much guys.

    Byblis ID ?

    Hi guys, this spring I sow some "no-name" seeds I had found in the fridge before. It showed up that it is some byblis but I don't have any idea which one Does anybody identify this plant please ?
  6. Yes, I agree. Occasional feeding will be helpful for most CPs. But I think that not many species will react like this. I tried to feed D. filiformis, D. scoriopides, D. capensis and some other ordinary droseras but I haven't noticed any obviously change - positive or negative. But yes - there are some species that require to be fed for good growth. It can be also very useful for tuberous sundews. On the other hand there can be quite serious problems with mould - undigested rests of fodder quickly go mouldly in higher air humidity or when fodder fall to soil. I had to repot my D. indica twice
  7. H. D. indica seems to me like an exception - I think there are not many species which would react to feeding like this. There could be many other reasons why your seedlings don't grow well and I would guess that feeding is not the right one. But you can try it. I would recomend you to try it just slightly. Some species don't like to be fed much and could react negatively. Good luck!
  8. Thanks for comment I used to have "bad luck" with D. indica in past. Seeds always germinated very well but seedlings has never grown up and always has died after 5-6 months. They looked absolutely same like that starving little plants above. Now I know that it wasn't bad luck but they just starved to death. The difference is enormous. To be honest I have to say that it wasn't my idea to feed D. indica so much but advice of my friend and very experienced grower who I get seeds from. This white flower clone of D. indica is very big in general. I guess that until fall when it will propabl
  9. Yes, he is fed very well
  10. Hi! I took some pictures of plants after 4 months from the first photos... Both pots are still at the same place. Both are in absolutely similar condition (temperature, humidity, water) and soil. The biggest plant has about 40 cm from soil to top of the newest leaves now. Note the fast grow of the fed plants (compare pictures from May with these below). Comparision of hungry and fed plants Detail of hungry D. indica:) Fed and happy D. indica :) Happy grower with happy D. indica :)
  11. Hi, it's hard to say, the plant doesn't look well. Based on pictures I would exclude D. dilatato-petiolaris. Can be D. petiolaris but...the hairy centre looks like typically D. fulva. On the other hand - the shape and length of leaves point more to D. petiolaris.....for me it seems like it can be a hybrid.
