    I have another plant, from the same seed batch, which is alot slower, darker, smaller than this one i Guess it would be similar to yours???
  5. Thanx for sharing your pics (i find it easier to do so, now im sober!) Im inclined to agree with your statement af Eymae being an extreme of Maxima IM guessing our plants could be a cross between Eymae & Maxima, apparently none of the plants in Kews private collection are "true" Eymae,s, maybe they should only be propagated vegativley?
  6. Hello Manders, i guess im still having problems "sharing" photos! I agree about the " name" thing I love this plant! CK or not , pants are pants!!!! im not a "fan" of "Goldie" the sarracenia, but it has a "designer" name so can demand a higher price!!?? HOPEFULLY you can now see the pics i intended for my previous post 285688_10150873662145098_685899144_n by elvis g, on Flickr 197815_10150873671910098_672617986_n (1) by elvis g, on Flickr TigerJoe 016 by elvis g, on Flickr TigerJoe 045 by elvis g, on Flickr

  16. Getting back to the point of "possible carnivory in plants" has anyone done any research,or are aware of any proof that Schizolobium Parahyba may be carnivorous? I have grown this species (known as a Brazilian tree fern) and the "leading" stem of this plant is Very sticky and "trapped" many small flies!! There must be some reason for this, but im no scientist, i just like weird plants!!! ;)
  17. Whatever the outcome im sure that im not the first to request one!!!! Congratulations on your "new Babies"!
