  1. From time to time (depends on the place of the pot) some drops of water from above or under. And if you are successful you get:
  2. I definitely agree in all of silverbackĀ“s growing condition! Healthy looking plants in really good light by the way .... Greetings Stefan
  3. Dear all, I will be for a short trip in Dublin next week. Are there any P. lusitanicum sites that can be visited there? Anybody out there who would be so kind to show me a site? I am there Wednesday - Friday afternoon. Any ideas through PM welcome! Kindest regards Stefan

  5. Dear all, ages ago I obtained seed of the so called S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. burkei from a location called "Walton Cty., Florida". Nowadays the name is S. rosea and I still maintain some plants of that location. One of the seedlings indeed grew into a hybrid I think between S. rosea and S. flava. Can anybody familiar with that location tell me what kind of S. flava are to be found there, whether that hybrid was seen in nature and perhaps give me some informations. Kindest regards Stefan

  8. Hi all, thanks to a good friend (may I post your name here?) I was lucky enough to obtain 3 Setocoris bybliphilus last autumn. They were adult sized with eggs in their abdomen. While transplanting them to my B. gigantea plants one fall onto the substrate of one pot and never was seen again. Another one died within three or four days. Not a good start at all! The very last one survived for months. I fed it with Drosophila the whole winter. Also I had to keep the plants under artificial lights because in the greenhouse during the winter Byblis always gets infected with white mould (hope thats t
  9. Hi all, wanted to share some pictures of Byblis that I was sowing at the beginning of January: Overview: left to right: B. guehoi Kimberley; B. rorida Lake Campion; B. liniflora Kingston Rest Byblis guehoi Kimberley (a big thanks to the donator here in the forum, contact me in 2 months if you need seed back!) and B. liniflora from Kingston Rest All were soaked in GAB3 for 48 h and sown under high humidity and artifical lights. Thus some of the leaves are curved because I removed the transparent hood last week. In the background some duplicates because that plants I will use to prod

  11. Hi, during summer I was lucky enough to obtain a starter pack of Pameridea marlothii. They can easiely be kept on Roridula gorgonias but multiply not as fast as P. roridulae. here are two not very good shots but I thought pictures of this species are not common: A big thanks to the donor and the collector! Kindest regards Stefan
  12. Hi Yves, glad to see you had success with this beautiful species! If cultivated well the plant is self fertile. Flowers will last (to 3) days only! regards Stefan
  13. Hi friends, today I was as close as 10 km away from one of my favorite bogs and could not resist to visit it during the Pinguicula flowering time. The bog is a calcareous bog (sorry I miss the exact English term) where extremely CO2 rich, cold water emerges from the ground in a couple of small fountains. The whole area is about the size of 4-5 football fields and very hidden. The water has a pH of 7,4 - 7,6 with D. anglica growing in that not acidic water. Plants do not grow to the size they do on peat ground but they are numerous. Also can be found Gentians (spring Gentian already flowered)
  14. Hi all, I was asked for growing advice for this beautiful species. Here are some points: Medium: Try an open, peat based medium with Perlite, Vermicullite, clay pearls, sand The ingriedients are not so important but it should be an open mix Most important: Add ONE !! of the lovely yellow graines called Osmocote about one inch deep under the roots for good growth, plants not fed will survive but never show you itĀ“s full beauty with plenty of flowers Climate: Humidity is not so important in may eyes, I keep it dowm to 30 - 40 % rel. humidity on hot, sunny summer days, temps can be as high a
