  1. Same here. I usually use this: Lowlanders: 1/5 dead sphagnum, 1/5 perlite, 1/5 peat moss, 2/5 Orchiata 9-12mm (orchiata are high-quality barks) Highlanders: 2/3 dead sphagnum + perlite 1/3 In my conditions, highland plants are not growing very well in peat-base medium.
  2. Looking good! I'm just having a doubt if eymae is really eymae. It looks more like maxima to me.
  3. I really like the setup. I hope the plants will like it in a long term!
  4. Could it be accumulation of salt, or fertiliser?

    Winter pitchers

    Wow, such beauties! In particular spectabilis. The "body" of the pitcher almost reminds my of burbidgeae. What is that clone?
  6. Hi everyone, I'll try to pollinate my N. campanulata soon, but I have a technical question to improve the success rate. Do you stop watering the flowers in order to avoid washing off the pollen? Thanks for the advices.
  7. Nothing new, but my Lepanthes telipogoniflora is continuously flowering, and I really like it.
  8. The following 2 have some:
  9. This really is the perfect plant and set-up. And a successful fertilisation ;-) Congratulations!

    I just tried a mix with Seramis. But it's really recent, so I can't tell much about the results (ok so far, though). 1 perlite, 1 pumice, 1 pouzzolane, 1 Seramis, 1 calcareous sand + calcareous sand surfacing
  11. I never hear about that, but that's very interesting. Let us posted about your results!
  12. Hi everyone, I'm about to receive some Mexican pinguiculas, and I am planning to put some pure sand on top of the mix as surfacing. The aim is to avoid algae development. So, the question is: which sand? Calcareous (same as I'll put in my mix), or the usual carnivorous plants one (quartz)? Did anyone compare these 2 side-by-side, to have an idea of what is best? I noticed a lot of moss development in the pot where I have my Nepenthes campanulata with calcareous gravel surfacing.
  13. Good luck, ladies and gentlemen... We are not part of the EU, and I can assure you this is NOT easy! It certainly has some advantages, but you'll love the dramatic increase in paperwork...
  14. Hi Ruben, Any news about this great Pinguicula wall? I think this is a brilliant set-up. And by the way, what is your "ping mix" you are using between the 2 layers of sphagnum?
  15. Nice work Thomas! Thanks for sharing.
