  1. The photo focus is amazing. Stacking technique?
  2. Sorry this has happened. I hope you 2 can come to a agreement. Was the package inspected locally at customs? Sent from my SM-N920I
  3. Im not siding anyone but i think how david counted the plant can be 1 large or 2 young. As for missing plant. Liked i mention before above. It happeb from time to time. Either he forgot or maybe failed inspection or what so ever. I won't say he has the best attitude on business but just on the " can communicate " level. He do have alot of different plant to offer. For everyone. Ordering from david will have to be prepared for surprises. Have free plants and expect some missing. Slow but will deliver. Sent from my SM-N920I

  6. I opt for white lights too, pleasing on the eyes and photographing. I use a mix of warm and white. At the height of 35cm, I would advise a minimum of 3watt per diode. They give out heat so take note. My reference on the 3watt diode led setup near the end of thread. http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=54092&view=findpost&p=376161

  9. Sounds good.I think thr aquatic one will be better if they are both producing the same intensity. But even with the 2 same set up on my 2 tier rack. The plants color up differently . The bottom shelf seems to get redder. Sent from my SM-N9005

Here's a closed up, Anther and Stigma present. Pollen too? Closer view to see if we can identify where the pollens are? In the centre? 2 views more on the whole flower.

  22. Of all common Carnivorous plants, Nepenthes is one of them then I've been resisting. Space is a problem for me always. Recently, I've taking a peek into the Nepenthe's world, and little did I know - I've been poisoned. I already have the N. Gracilis, N Ventrata, N Rebecca Soper. Last few days, I've traded and bought a few more N. Rafflesiana, N. Miranda cutting and N. Ampullaria My current N. Rebecca Soper N. Miranda basal cutting - Nice pitcher N. Rafflesiana
