  1. I find Dionaea and Sarracenia respond well to GA3 treatment.
  2. Can't wait to see results myself, although this might take a few years to find any. The plant growth regulators is in liquid form, I'll start with very diluted solutions at first to see the effects it has if any? I update regularly with individual pictures, hope I don't kill any to early on....
  3. So... I eventually have a lineup of volunteers for very exciting experimentation. As I've received these 9 Cephalotus typicals through the post, I will hold of on fertilization until I see new growth from all plants. All potted in the exact same mix, their clones from the same parent plant and they will be kept under the same conditions. All are treated with Trichoderma. The biggest and healthiest plant will be fed the placebo (RO water) and I have something special in store for one of these, the details of which of disclose of in its own thread. The remaining 7 will receive all sorts of foods supplements, fertilizers & PGR's. (I have been considering feeding 1 just bugs?) The other substances are BCAA - L-Valine, L-Leucine, and L-Isoleucine. L-glutamine Superthrive Orchid Ultra Indole-3-butyric acid Kinetin I would have liked to use Maxsea in this experiment, but could not afford it as shipping was an arm & a leg ( if anyone has a small amount to donate please let me know). I am open to suggestions and any ideas.

    Looking good. How did you strike them?
  5. When the finer details of everything is studied, fractals is evident... So yes Mozart would be fractal.
  6. If it is powdery mildew, the cure is lots of fresh air and full sun...
  7. Trichoderma harzianum strain B-77 has been proven effective against Botrytis. Is more preventative than cure though. Google it
  8. Lovely plants Natale. Please post a picture of your Cephalotus "Mattew Soper" Clone.
  9. From the pictures, it does seem similar...
  10. Thanks for the insight. I've recently received some cephs, on which this moss is growing and just wondering if I should rather replace it with live Sphagnum? I wonder how it comes to be growing along with so many cephs, naturally or cultivated...
  11. Would someone be so kind as to tell me what kind of moss this is growing around this ceph? Picture by Alvise Thanks, Riaan
  12. BBC Life S01 E09 Plants is a great documentary on plants with some stunning carnivorous shots. E02 Amphibians also has some nice Drosera in natural habitat. Can anyone recommend documentaries on carnivorous plants? Thanks, Riaan

    It closes its lid to prevent its digestive juices from escaping. So, if your humidity drops it closes the lid (also just after transplanting or if the plant is stressed)
