    Heliamphora macdonaldae at

    I have to say that the Araflora's helis I've seen are much bigger than the AW's (including mine)

    2018 ICPS Conference

    That was exactly my thought @David Ahrens. Been able to acquire some plants is part of the whole experience at the ICPS conferences but it will suck if they get confiscated at the airport. I wish an official statement from the organizers would be post on the website or Facebook before making my summer plans.

    2018 ICPS Conference

    Great info @Mujinamo! One question about the sales: How will it work for us coming from EU buying plants during the conference? (permits etc etc)

    This is important.

    This is not that important, sorry. Basic care for commercial sundews and other CPs is easily found here with the search option or Google.

    heliamphora 'red mambo'

    That nectar spoon....
  7. The seller has been growing nepenthes way over 10 years now and as Osmosis says with time, good disposition and approach you can build a very good network in the hobby. The "rare" plants in private collections are seldom offered openly on Facebook, forums etc. They use to go between experienced growers and privatly.

    AW will also release it next year, but it's better with several sources. Looking forward this beauty

    Nepenthes alata 'Rubrum' ???

    Very "shady" ad with no background info and a bad quality pic. I have never heard of "rubrum" as a variation or cultivar or type of alata... stay away from it.

    Heating with 12v DC

    I'm indeed following this post. I run most of my GH with a 260w solar system with 3 185ah batteries, a mppt controller for efficency and a 1kw inverter. After testing different loadouts I decided to run everything (lamps, ventilation, hydrofogger) but the heating with solar 'cos it is the most taxing of all the appliances.

    Krzysio's Nepenthes

    Not often you see pictures of a Bloody Mary upper, interesting
  14. Yes, I meant ROOTED, typos are my speciality nowadays. Ventrata is a VERY forgiving nep so they might be fine with a short acclimatization to lower RH.
  15. You can not fail with a ventrata. I cut several basal shoots a couple of months ago, bagged them and placed them everywhere in the GH (some in very dark places). Every single one rotted. Cuttings want high humidity (up to 100%) in order to develop the roots, so it does not matter if the mother plant is in a 20% RH all day long. As a rule, with other more demanding neps, I give the cuttings exactly the same amount of light as the mother plant receives.
