  1. My male campanulata made a flower in autumn/winter and has since never decided to actually open any of the flowers. Has anyone had this happen to them before? I'm strongly considering cutting the flower off, but I'm kind of hoping that they will still open.
  2. Does it really grow in the same conditions as sibuyanensis? Might need to consider getting me some argentii then as my sibuyanensis just grows on my windowsill, flowered two years ago and consistently pitchers like crazy.
  3. So far for me, lowii hybrids have proven to be very tolerant in their growing conditions. I haven't tried pure lowii on a windowsill however a part from seedlings but they are in miniature growing boxes so humidity for them was high. The lowii hybrids I currently have growing on a windowsill are N. briggsiana N. lowii x truncata N. lowii x campanulata N. trusmadiensis x burbidgeae
  4. Not sure what your definition of small is, but lowii gets huge over time. What temperatures do you normally get during the day?
  5. If this is indeed crown rot, cut of the top dead parts and leave the surviving leaves on the plant. Treat with a fungicide and improve the conditions. If the plant has some reserves it will produce an offshoot lower on the stem.
  6. I have a male campanulata which flowered in autumn 2017. Maybe it'll make another flower this year.
  7. How are you tadpoles doing? Have they become frogs already? Mine are out of the water for two months now and, as they believe they are now toxic, are becoming much more visible and bold. I'll snap a few pictures in the next few days when I see them.
  8. I've had one for over a year now. It's a fast grower and does well in intermediate to highland conditions. I grow mine on a windowsill. Unfortunately mine got burned rather badly this summer during a heat wave. We opened the windows but the plants were not accustomed to direct light (with UV). It's recovering well now but had a setback.
  9. They are now in their home for the next 4+ months. All three have become fat healthy frogs. They're very shy for the moment, but this will get better as they grow a bit bigger. Surprisingly their pattern is still slowly changing and, according to some froggers I know, will keep changing until they are 6 months old. Manders, how are your tadpoles doing?
  10. An update: All the tadpoles of my first batch are going through the morphing process.
  11. I worked as a molecular biologist at the entomological department of two musea for a year and am currently doing a PhD at the University of Antwerp in soil microbiology.
  12. It's Quercus robur, but the leaf has been in there with the developing tadpole from the beginning of july, so it has turned black by now.
  13. One of the tadpoles from the first batch just popped out the front legs. So this guy is what came out of the eggs on the photographs on page 1.
  14. Nice, just make sure your frogs aren't depleting their nutrients too quickly by laying that many eggs. I feed my tadpoles fish food and frozen bits of vegetables.
  15. Hi Manders, They are Dendrobates auratus (highland bronze). I keep them in a terrarium together with some of my highland Nepenthes. It seemed like an ideal way to combine hobbies :) Do you have some pictures of your frogs? Here is the father of the eggs sitting on a young eddy And the mother on her favourite bromeliad They don't mind the pitcher plants (or the cold at night). Only interaction I've seen so far is that they steal the occasional prey out of shallow pitchers (like jamban). I've got two more egg clutches developing right now and the first tadpole of those hatched yesterday. I am wondering if the tadpoles would survive in the pitchers but don't want to take the risk of killing them by throwing them in. What are you feeding your tadpoles?
