  1. Hello all! I've recently returned from a stint at university, and my plants are, surprisingly, still doing rather well under the lacking care of my mother. Lots of exciting things happening around my grow shelf at the moment. I'm incredibly pleased that this is the best my plants have ever looked (A mother's touch, I suppose). They're currently sitting in clear tupperware shoeboxes under dual T5 HO lights at varying distances. They're given water "whenever they run out" which has been about three times in the last three months. I have everything sort of mixed together (highlanders and lowlanders) but everything seems to be liking the conditions they're in!

Thanks for looking!
  2. Thanks Rodrigo! My Nepenthes are a bit of a side project, they tend to take a back seat to my dear Drosera which I am so fond of. But I enjoy their hardiness and variability. Fantastic genus! Here's one that I'm very proud of, after six months of stabilizing, my AW inermis finally feels good enough to make a pitcher: It's a shame regia is rare in your country, it's a fun plant, and rather easy. I have good success with it, but it does not like my warm summer temperatures. Thanks again, Gabriel
  3. A couple more things: D. ultramafica x spatulata is flowering... U. blanchetii "WF, chapada diamantia" IIRC: D. capillaris "Long arm, Belem" D. venusta lookin decent... D. spatulata "Gold coast, Queensland" D. ultramafica x spatulata plantlet... D. rorimae from leaf cuttings actually look half decent. Nothing like on the Tepuis. But restarting from leaves certainly made better looking plants: Thanks for looking!
  4. Thanks Tuuagso! @Bananaguy, no problem. Good luck with the Utrics! Anyways, I took a few more pics today... N. 'Lady Pauline' made a nicely coloured pitcher: N. veitchii popped a new one: U. reniformis has quite the root system: N. miranda making a slow recovery after a fungal infection, had to cut it and try rooting, luckily it seems to have struck: D. regia seedlings: P. 'John Rizzi' A project I've been working on for a while, it's a Tepui theme jar, with an assortment of mosses and some D. intermedia "Gran Sabana" U. pubescens: D. adelae: D. schizandra: D. graomogolensis: H. tatei x sarracenoides is making it's third pitcher: There's a bit of a debate going on with this hybrid, here it is, and it's parents. D. capensis "Albino" x aliciae: Thanks for looking!
  5. Thanks for the kind words everyone! @Bananaman, yeah, the veitchii is of the lowland form I think (elongated leaves and skinny pitchers) but it has a very nice peristome. The humboldtii and reniformis are both growing in pure low quality Sphagnum with a top dressing of live Sphagnum. I believe that the humboldtii has Chilean sphag as the topdressing, and the reniformis has misc. Canadian species. The two clones I possess originated from another grower here in Canada, but I know that the humboldtii is the generic clone from Best Carnivorous Plants. I have a much larger container full of it that I'll try to grab pictures of later. The clone in question is very easy to grow, as is the reniformis. Thanks again, Gabriel
  6. D. falconeri: D. hamiltonii: D. regia from seed: D. venusta "Tstiskama RSA" Utricularia: U. blanchetii: U. rostrata: Small container with a pot of reniformis and humboldtii: Pinguicula: P. weser: P. emarginata: P. 'Crystal' Cephalotus: The clone from keehns carnivores is finally picking up again: Bromeliads: B. reducta "France strain" Two random broms I have in my setup: Thanks for looking!
  7. Hello everyone! I don't post here often, but I thought I would share some assorted photos that I've taken over the last while. Hope you enjoy!

'Lady Pauline' N. ventricosa x robcantleyi: N. rafflesiana: N. veitchii x talangensis: The whole Nepenthes collection: Heliamphora: I was lucky enough to get a chance at growing Heliamphora from seed.. I got three seeds, and 2/3 germinated.

  8. Ohhhhhhh, should be interesting then! Hopefully a breeding population won't establish...
  9. Hello! Apparently this is the second time in a week that a sawscaled viper has been found in Britain. And granny did a good job taking care of the situation, instead of killing it. I know that if this had been in the USA, the snake would have been killed, and granny would have been a hero. But this story is even better for the snake and the granny! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2199136/Grandmother-picks-foot-long-viper-kitchen-tongs-realising-worlds-deadliest-snake.html Obviously the solution to a potential snake invasion (not that they can survive winters) is a little old lady with a pair of salad tongs, positioned on every street corner!
  10. Thanks! Forgot to put in the post, that the last location is in Pennsylvania USA... Sorry...
  11. Hello from the Colonies! I've been actively searching for bogs with Drosera and Sarracenia for a while now, and I have found a couple nice locations... Here is the sum of my work! Just the common Northern stuff, mostly in Canada, but one location in the USA. First location, is a boardwalk with D. rotundifolia along it, very nice plants. The larger ones have odd upright growth in the middle of summer, unlike the other rotundifolia I've seen... This is a typical Sphagnum bog, with a bunch of different moss species I can't identify! We also get some nice Pink Slipper Orchids here during late spring. Quite a beautiful vista! A yellow flowered Utricularia at the same location. I have no idea what species it is, but they are quite nice when multitudes of them flower in the spring! Second location, is along a small highway. Some really beautiful D. intermedia, growing out of logs, and pure peat. Third location, is a floating bog in a beaver pond. These occur all over the place in the Canadian Shield, can't walk more than a few kilometres without stumbling into one. These are some nice big D. rotundifolia: And last but not least, this is a location that is totally flooded with S. purpurea. The bog has human origins (created by logging, and a natural depression in the ground became the bog) and the purpurea were transplanted to the area in the 1950s by the local botanical society. The plant is native to the area anyways, and the location is quite striking. More wide angle shots from this year: Beautiful! I'll leave it at that! Tell the queen I said hello! Gabriel
  12. Khelljuhg, Xeno, and Jim, thanks very much! I try! Drosera are my speciality, so I'm glad other people think they look good! Rodrigo, I very much recommend derbiensis, it is a very nice plant, and it spares its grower of all the dormancy stuff ordensis gives me!
  13. Wow Sir! Those are incredible! The traps are simply massive! I'll have to get down to Brazil someday! Gabriel (from ICPS!)
