  1. I buyed this Genlisea two years ago. It was labelled as Genlisea violecea "giant". I kind of doubt that it's a Genlisea flexuosa. So can anyone help me ID it?
  2. This is my favorite utricularia. It's as easy to grow as U. livida or sandersonii, the only difference is that you have to keep it warm all year. It flowers every winter in my terrarium.

    The substrate is too wet. Either water the plants less or transplant them into a taller pot.
  4. I have all of these at home. With the exception of D. madagascariensis and D. adelae everything survives the winter in my basement on a windowsill. There it is 3 - 5 C in the winter. They all keep their leafes, but stop growing.The binatas react different to this. Most form a hibernacula, D. "extrema" however dies down to the roots and starts growing from the soil in the spring. As long as the temperature isn't bellow 0, your plants should be fine. D. madagascariensis and D. adelae hate cold and I grow them in my terrarium.
  5. I am growing it now D. filiformis var. filiformis for 3 years. The first year I lost more than half of the plants and I grew them in a mix of peat and perlite. So next year I decided to put half of the survivors in a pot with life sphagnum and D. rotundifolia. The plants there grew really fast and were more than twice as tall as the ones from the peat/perlite mix. I have fund out that in live sphagnum D. filiformis has no problems with being wet and I didn't loose one plant since I put them in there. The hibernacula are completely covered in the sphagnum and that protects them in the winter. I
  6. I think this is a form of Utricularia bisquamata. One form has small, almost white flowers. It self polliantes and becomes a weed, so keep it away from other utricularia.
  7. I am growing my plants in terrarium since February. I have 2 "day" and 2 "nature" lights. The plants look excelent, escpecaily Utricularia. This is the first time Utricularia praelonga blooms for me.
  8. My plant started to flower. It has about 10 flower stalks. Many people say that this plant flowers only if it is exposed to low winter temperatures. Well I was growing it on my windowsill (20°C during winter). A month ago I moved it to my terrarium and after a week I noticed the first flower stalk. Also I am growing this plant now for about a year. Here is a picture of the first flower: free picture hosting
  9. Well... I had a bad experience with a nature light in my aquarium. When I used it all the fast growing, tall plants died.... On the other side java moss and anubias plants grew well....
  10. How about a combination of 3 day lights and 1 nature. Narva nature:
  11. Hello. I am going to set up a terrarium for growing carnivorous plants. I have an aquarium ( 100 cm long[39.3 inches] x 40 cm[15.7 inches] wide x 50cm[19.6 inches] high. It's volume is 200 liters [52.8 gallons]. I plan to use 2 x 24 W T5 and 2 x 39 W T5 lights. Also i will add reflectors to the light.... The lights I want to buy are Narva lights. They have 6000K and I am going to grow the following plants in the terrarium: Drosera alicae Drosera adelae Drosera burmannii Drosera binata (only young plants) Drosera capensis "typical" Drosera capensis"alba" Drosera pygmea Drosera obl
  12. I use a mix od perlite, vermiculate, sand and peat. For P. gypsicola and hybrids of this speicies I also add some gypsium...
  13. On the ICPS it says that fungicides mean death to Pinguicula. Also the mold is there probably because the soil is fresh. In my experience this mold appears the first month on peat and then disappears....
  14. I propagaded several Pinguicula from summer leaves: Pinguicula ‘APHRODITA’(P. agnatha x moctezumae) Pinguicula ‘WESER’ Pinguicula agnata Pinguicula agnata x gypsicola Pinguicula gracilis x moctezumae Pinguicula gypsicola Pinguicula gypsicola x moctezumae Only one didn't succeed, it was either P. gypsicola or a hybrid with it.... I know that several Pinguicula won't survive if they don't have a dry dormancy, but they still have carnivorous leaves. Here are pictures of my Pinguicula: Pinguicula ‘APHRODITA’ Pinguicula agnata Pinguicula agnata x gypsicola ? Pinguicula gypsicola or
  15. My plants have flower stalks that are purple in summer and green ones in winter. Here is a picture of a subulata that has green flowers stalks: http://users.humboldt.edu/rziemer/zphotos/U_subulata301.JPG Also occasionally my subulata makes small whitish flowers that don't open fully and fall off shortly after they are produced. These are much smaller than the typical yellow flowers and if you don't look carefully you don't even notice them....
