  1. You are all kind, thank you a lot for your nice words! Here is picture on demand - Drosera capensis "Broad Leaf Form" with it's taller and wider leafs ... and some more :) Drosera admirabilis {Bain’s Kloof Pass, RSA} Drosera [esterhuyseniae x slackii] breed by Andreas Fleischmann some more Drosera hamiltonii with it's common autumn coloration and Drosera adelae when it gets a lot of light
  2. Thank you all for your kind words! :) Bain's Kloof capensis is about four years old. First three years it developed roots and got bigger and last year it made such woody stem...
  3. African beauties :) Drosera cuneifolia {Table Mountain, RSA} Drosera cuneifolia {Silvermine Nature Reserve, RSA} Drosera venusta {George, Oudtshoorn, RSA} Drosera slackii Drosera rubrifolia A true Drosera burkeana {Zambia} Drosera capensis {Bain’s Kloof Pass, RSA} Drosera collinsiae {Mbuluzi River, Swaziland} Drosera madagascariensis American beauties :) Drosera graomogolensis Drosera spiralis {Estrada para Macacos (1.288 m), Diamantina, Minas Gerais, Brasil} Drosera tomentosa var. glabrata {Serra do Caraça, Minas Gerais, Brazil} Drosera tomentosa var. glabrata {Serra da Canastra, Delfinópolis, Minas Gerais, Brazil} Drosera sessilifolia {Chapada dos Guimarães, Brasil} Australian beauties :) Drosera burmannii {Hann River, Kimberley, Australia} (Giant Red Form) Drosera platystigma Drosera scorpioides Drosera hamiltonii Drosera adelae
  4. So, after two years plant got bigger and finally turned out to be a female of N. aristolochioides x mira (also known as N. 'Involuntary Bliss')...
  5. Dave, thank you for your reply! In reply to my last email the seller noted that he received about 6000 plants from BE by now and there was no mislabeling at all. From every order he keeps a few plants for his collection (he has about 20 000 plants in his greenhouse). In size of my plant he has spathu x aristo hybrid in several clones. Plants of aristo x mira hybrid he has smaller. For me, according to photos I saw and your replies, the winner is aristo x mira hybrid. But the seller seems to have no doubt about spathu x aristo, so I have labeled my plant as spathu x aristo. I believe him...
  6. Thank you, Welshy and Dave, for your replies! The seller ruled out hybrid with N. talangensis as he has never had it in his collection. He checked if my plant is spathulata x aristo or aristo x mira. And after checking some documents and plants in his greenhouse his final result is that my plant is a spathulata x aristo hybrid. He received spathulata x aristo plants in several clones from Borneo Exotics two yers ago and my plant is one of them. So he insists it is a clone of spathulata x aristo hybrid although it is not a usual one... And he doubt BE had mislabeled it. Here is foto of plitcher of his plant (http://postimg.org/image/s0eqlauhf)
  7. Welshy, Dave thank you both for expressing your disagreement! According to your last replies I wrote to the seller there are serious doubt about his labeling. And he replied he tryied to recall what did he sell during exhib and considered more leaves then pitchers as they were small in that time. He admited that in case of doubt it could be aristo x mira. He definitely ruled out a bellii x aristo as he has never had this hybrid in his collection. And he promised to compare plants in his greenhouse and check some documents from exhib time. We will see then... Michal
  8. I bought this nep during exposition last summer and I think my nep was only aristo-hybrid sold there. So I decided to try to find out a seller and ask him/her for my nep ID. I finally succeeded thanks to Zlatokrt (nickname on this forum). The seller kindly replied to my email and he replied somethink like this: "I looked what hybrids did I have during exposition and yours seems to be N. spathulata x aristolochioides for 99%. Leaves are quite similar to spathulata ones and mouth as well. Then size of plant: I gues plant was about 20cm in diameter and in this size I had only noted hybrid... If you are comparing to BExtotics, then note that BExotics sells this hybrid in several clones. So you cant compare by commonly published photos because your hybrid is slightly different..." So I think riddle solved :) Dave, TCurrell, Olivermurray7373, Welshy: you have my BIG THANKS that you involved to ID my plant! Michal
  9. Thank you all for your reply! Dave, bellii is a hot candidate! Thank you for pointing me on it. I made another picture that shows that the pitchers are not so squat. http://postimg.org/image/umq93dqnt Hmmm, so it is not so easy as I hoped :/ Below are links to pictures of hybrids which look almost like my plant: maxima x aristolochioides http://www.darwiniana.cz/vamr/galerie/01349-t3.jpg https://www.flickr.com/photos/fraying/8417955093/ .. other pictures show a big variability of this hybrid bellii x aristolochioides https://nitrogenseekers.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/20140614-073002-27002051.jpg https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2926/14239159208_dedff57a48_b.jpg http://www.terraforums.com/forums/showthread.php/136024-Show-Me-Your-Aristo-Hybrids!?p=1159636&viewfull=1#post1159636 http://nitrogenseekers.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/20121130-095858.jpg bellii x (thorelii x aristolochioides) http://www.exoticaplants.com.au/admin/uploads/belxthorxaristo.jpg Involuntary Bliss = aristolochioides x mira https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-6p9vNw6KzFQ/UpZ_QxCGN5I/AAAAAAAAEpI/6JILyDO73OY/w477-h846-no/IMG_20131127_152452_508.jpg https://40.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6eyjux3xA1qfpqbpo1_1280.jpg http://leilaninepenthes.com/Images/DSC_2026.JPG http://leilaninepenthes.com/Images/DSC_2043.JPG https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bw21zsZCIAE5lU7.jpg http://40.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6eyjux3xA1qfpqbpo1_500.jpg spectabilis x aristolochioides https://nitrogenseekers.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/aristo-spectabilis.jpg .. but this hybrid has striped mouth burbidgeae x aristolochioides http://www.borneoexotics.com/images/catalogue/h-650/BE-3556a.jpg .. other pictures of this hybrid prove not to be relevant to my plant Which hybrid would you choose? Which do you think is the most closest to my plant? Is still bellii x arist. your favorite? Thank you a lot! Michal
  10. TCurrell: thank You for your reply! I know ID hybrids is quite tricky, but in this case there is not so many posibilities... I bet on maxima x aristolochioides. What do you think?
  11. I have bought this plant labeled as N. aristolochioides x spathulata, but such hybrid does not seem to exist. Could you try to ID this plant, please? http://postimg.org/image/olhfvn19p http://postimg.org/image/4plgg3k8d http://postimg.org/image/p8gcl5y5p http://postimg.org/image/tlew3l6wd http://postimg.org/image/i3yjc4qwd Many thanks, Michal
