  1. Hello everyone, This year I'm again in the fields, and some new species have been discovered (G.oxycentron, U.alpina, U.calycifida) and identified in my small country. But there is much more to do....I have some pictures of two plants I can't identify myself, I think I'm not skilled enough, that's why I need your help. Here are two links pointing to pictures of the 2 species I need to be identified : Utricularia sp.01 : http://www.lachaussetterouge.fr/2015/04/utricularia-sp.html Utricularia sp.02 : http://www.lachaussetterouge.fr/2015/04/utricularia-sp2.html Well, in my ey
  2. Dear friends, I'm living since nearly 10 years now in French Guyana, a little country situated on the Atlantic coast, next to the border of Brazil, in the Amazonas area. Here we can find many Utricularia - 25 species have been discovered until today - , two Drosera, Catopsis berteroniana, and some Genlisea. It was always tought that our country is home of Genlisea pygmaea. I never found this plant during all the years down here. Wich not mean that the plant doesn't exist here. I found a plant named Genlisea filiformis 2012. The "discovery" of this plant by myself confirmed it's prese
  3. hello everyone, many thanks to all the people interested in my comments, and about a plant wich appears to be very interesting, once you know it's "secrets" @ Fernando : I found some pics of the Nourague Inselberg on the internet, it looks amazing! I'm surprised you found U.hispida there, as I would not expect this species to grow on inselbergs. It is an amazing experience to see an "island" like this after a flight over the jungle...during one hour, I flew over the jungle, wich was nothing else than a green ocean...and then, suddenly, a gigantic mountain made of pure rock appears, like if
  4. Hi dear friends, well, I hope you understood all of my writings...I made a small video (link is below) , but here are some answers : @ Fernando: 1) By "elevated" you mean it is above the water level, right? No ! in the central area of this savana, the water level is about 2 to 5 cm, whilst the water level of the areas wich surround this central area is about 10 to 20cm in deepness. 2) So you've only seen CPs around this coastal plain of Fr.Guiana? No, again ;-) I've seen most of them in the coastal plain area, but I've been on the Nourague Inselberg, where I observed U.hispida (you c
  5. Hi all, @ Fernando : thanks for your comments, and corrections (yes, I meant sunrise, of course...my frenglish is so bat, I'm sorry for the confusion) concerning the water level : the savana is covered with water, that's true. But the area in the middle of the savana is at a higher level than the margins. On the elevated part of the biotope, you'll find many carnivorous plants, like U.nana or U.hispida, plants wich you'll not find in the areas were U.subulata or U.viscosa grow. It's the same for Drosera capillaris : it did not grow under water in this savana, but I saw it growing submerg
  6. Hi dear friends and cp-enthousiasts, I published some more pictures of this intriguing plant on my homepage this year. Fernando, you seem to be right : this plant is certainly an annual. I live in Fr.Guyana, and most of the savanas down here (wich are biotopes for our plants ) burn down every year, because of the bushfires we have. after a fire, the savana is a stumpy field, the soil is rock hard, and nothing else than grasses seem to grow there....but wait until the rainy season arrives, and then , you will see many species appear ! concerning U.viscosa, I was lucky to discover why this p
  7. Hello dear people, I'm living in French Guyana for 4 years now, and before that I was in France for about 30 years. I 'm building my collection up again since 2 years now (I'm growing CP's since 15 years ) , and I'm trying to find out what kind of plants I'll be able to grow down here...it's a pretty riscky belief : many of my "test" plants died away before I decide to focus mainly on Sarracenia and Dionaea (and some others of course). Also some few Nepenthes are on the party, and newly some test-growing of pygmy will, maybe, help me to extend the collection. My country is an interrestin
