  2. My G. hispidula after exchanging the substrate:

     

    Photo 1 - Bottom of the antique vase. Notice the multiple pitfalls of this CP.

    Photo 2 - I may be wrong, but I believe that there are prey that were imprisoned in the traps of this CP.

    Photo 3 - The eight seedlings that removed the old pot. Note the amount of roots-traps, or best stolons (I infer that this is the correct name), this plant generates.

  3. I think i was late to give my opinion about this subject, but i think still worth writing a few lines on this issue; a long time ago i created a thread in this forum that addressed something and the concussion i got foristas and others you find here.

  4. what conditions are you growing it in?

     

    Leveraging the question of Stephen and being more specific with what you usually water your watering D. capensis?

  5. Thanks for the comment Anthony and, seizing the opportunity, following another quick update of this topic:

     

    14614048384_533dca285b_n.jpg

     

    As you can see the plant is still going strong in its development, but already beginning to wonder if it would have been better not to have it housed in a larger pot. The worst thing is that you should not move on this plan, as she accepts not be replanted ...

    The left is a trap unfolding and the right one can see how the substrate is formed where she's planted.

  6. Hello friends CPUK, my friend to explore a field in the village of Maranguape, Ceará / Brazil found some populations of U. jamesoniana growing as epiphyte amid branches of trees and on the slopes of a rocky cliff. To get an idea what I'm talking about accessing the link below:

     

    Utricularia jamesoniana in Maranguape, Ceará/ Brazil

     

    Hope you enjoy the pictures and published there, so until next time.

  7. Friends of CPUK, here i am again with another question and hope to have your help to solve it. It is as follows; many years ago a friend brought upon Japan a plant called N. 'Yatomi'. So far so good, but are they emerged doubt what would be involved in creating this Nepenthes hybrid (ie if not a cultivar), and after a long search, we found a specific information in the book "The Carnivorous Plants of the World" that CP said this is a hybrid between N. thorelii and N. veitchii.

    The problem is that when observing her picture in CPPhotFinder not find any similarities with these species, and to make matters worse, we think the picture on the web than would be true Yatomi. For comparison purposes below make available the images of the two Nep:

    So, which of the two is the true N. 'Yatomi'?

     

    Best regards,

  8. Dieter, i definitely surrender to his talent for creating hybrid pygmy Drosera. Few who holds such talent.

    I congratulate you for this further done and wish you success in your cultivation.

    Best regards,

  9. My Drosophyllum fell. Calm people, because the plant is OK. The same just searched "settle down" so that it could support the weight of four shoots that emerged in its stem, out the numerous insects that get caught in their traps. Below I leave a picture of him to better understand what I have related:

  10. Almost a year after the very last posting, behold here return to resurrect the subject matter hereof and news:

     

    D. burmannii "Hong Kong" (left) and D. sessilifolia (right)

     

    14176853762_b491deca48_n.jpg14179506925_1f2ce27915_n.jpg

     

    Most D. sessilifolia i have in my cultivation and its flowering stem

    So, can see the difference at each other?

     

    Best regards,

  11. After a long period without posting anything, here are two photos of my Drosophyllum:

     

    14083638045_31dca359b5_o.jpg

     

    The plant tried to bloom, but for adverse reasons aborted flowering. In contrast, this same five points sprouting and appears to be in full development.

     

    14084134554_87aeab6dd0_n.jpg

     

    Detail of the trap. It really is amazing how this plan unfolds its leaves and the most impressive is the number of insects captured by it.

     

    Best regards,
