  1. Thank you for the comment But I don't think that the bag method is the best in this case, because at full sun the bag would be very hot. But like heterodoxa hot is not a problem with nutans i guess? Thanks
  2. Hi everyone I have some questions I'm thinking in buying an H. nutans, but the plant it's used to terrarium and I pretend to put it as windowsill plant. I have an H. heterodoxa as windowsill and it's very healthy and big, grows vigorously. I want to know the steps to adapt a Helliamphora used to terrarium, so high humidity, to a windowsil with not much humidity... Thanks :)
  3. Onde é que eu já vi essas fotos? XD Very nice plants always Luís ;)
  4. Hi everybody I'm thinking in buying some plants in this website: http://carnivorousplantsgarden.com/ What do you think about the site? Has anyone bought there? If yes, the plants arrived well and were healthy? Thank you
  5. Thanks for the comment I didn't know that helli pitchers are brittle. The helliamphora that I order is in an window too, so humidty not so high, and the mix that the cultivator uses is perlite and peat... He send me the plant with the soil so I don't have to worry about the substracte... But I also haveSphagnum moss, so I will put a little in the plant to. About the watering what do you suggest? Thanks
  6. Hi everyone, I'm thinking in buying an H. heterodoxa, is my first helli... I found an window that is around 17ºC now in the winter, and in the summer rarely passes 25ºC. This window receives some hours of direct sun in the afternon, and in the morning indirect sun. I did, for use as soil, a mixture of perlite, sphagnum moss, peat and volcanic rock (1/1/1/1) What do you think? What are your tips for the substrate? Some advice if the plant starts to look bad, what to do? Thnanks
  7. Lol I bought one in carnivoria.eu too and she also died :/
  8. Thanks, I think that grow it in my outdoor will be bad :/ My temperatures here in my garden in summer reach to 30 or more degrees... But the it's full sun the most part of the day! I will try if she didn´t like, I put her in my terrarium, but i don´t have enough light in the terrarium to :/
  9. Hi everybody! I'm thinking in getting my first heliamphora, maybe H. heterodoxa x minor... The conditions that I found for it are great...It's a window that at the day doesn't exceed 26 degrees, and at night drops to 10 (or less)-17 degrees... The humidity in the day is around 70% at night 80/90%... The bad thing is the light, this windows just receives 3-4 hours of full sun, the rest of the day is just indirect sun... This is enough light for a helli? Thanks ;)
  10. Thank you for the comments! Yes I think the same, it's very cheap, mine comes with 30 cm of diameter so a little big, maybe more chances of survive, in the spring i'm thinking in getting lowii? It's the oposite of the ampullaria I know lol... But I also have a part of the house that is warm at the day, but at night it's very cold, it's in a window to... What's your advices about the lowii? It grows well? Thanks
  11. One question, if you think that ampularia is a little difficult, so what's the best lowland to start with? Thanks ;)
  12. OK, thanks for the comment, the ampullaria that I order is one that is adapted to windowsill conditions... Down to 13ºC rarely this happen... It's like a greenhouse the place that I'm thinking in put her... But if she starts to do bad in the place, I put her in my terrarium... Thanks ;)
  13. I have intermediates, this is just my first lowland, that I want to try
  14. Hi everybody I'm thinking in buying an n. ampullaria, is going to be my first lowland, I want to try cultivating lows in my house ahah I read a lot about them and after making some tests in the place I want to put her I have some questions. I'm thinking in put her near a window around some plants, the humidity in this place is about 70-80%, the temperatures now in the winter can go up to 24ºC during the day, and in the coldest nights never lower than 13ºC... What do you think? Any advise? Thanks ;)
  15. I also ordered plants from there, I love the size of the plants that they send, they are bigger that they say ahahh... But it seems that Darlingtonias from them are not very resistant, my is not very well, but I don't think because of the quality of the plant, Polonia is very cold, and Portugal in this time of the year is around 18ºC-20ºC she resented, if she die, I will buy another in spring from them so I recommend the site
  16. Thank you for the comments! I still have some hope, because in the center is still a pitcher in develop, and she also have 2/3 pitchers alive! I read that even if they lose all the leaves still exists chance to burst in spring. So I will wait until then and I will check the center and the roots! But thank you all : D
  17. Thanks, I forgot to say one thing. I have the Darling in my house for about two days! On the first day I put the plant in my shed that is where I have my Nepenthes so is warm and humid, and I think that was the mistake that cause this that's when she started to dry traps, the second day is when I put her in the garden in the cold! Is there any chance of the Darling returning in the spring with force? Or is already dead? I'm so sad Thanks :)
  18. Hello, I'm new here so my name is Ricardo I have 15 years and I am from Portugal :) Unfortunately I'm not here for the best reasons :/ I decided to give a big step and try cultivating Darlingtonia, I bought my Darlingtonia from the site carnivoria.eu, I don´t have any complaints about the plant and the way she came, but I think she doesn't like my clime :S She initially went to the house of a friend of mine I did this because we made the order together. In his home the darling was like this: Uploaded with ImageShack.us (Forget the blue circle) She was in my friend's house for a week and a half. She was very good health as you can see... Then she started dry the tongues just a little bit and I thought that was just the dormancy... I went to pick her up, and she was like this: Uploaded with ImageShack.us Not much difference She was in Polonia because the cultivator of the carnivoria is from there, so very cold temperatures than at here Portugal is around 17ºC, she started dry the big pitcher and then other pitchers and now is like this: Uploaded with ImageShack.us Uploaded with ImageShack.us Uploaded with ImageShack.us I don't know why is she like that :/ Is it because of climate change? She is in my garden to catch up with the cold, she is at winter full sun, but the vessel is protected, as moss at the surface .. The substrate is composed of 1 part peat, 1 part pine bark, perlite and 1 part 1 part moss ... I'm over watering and let drain into the dish. What can I do more? What's the possible mistake I made? Thank you very much
