  1. Hello everyone! For the first time, I have a Nepenthes in bloom! It's a hardy and compact specimen of N. ventricosa and I would be very pleased if I managed to get some seeds from it. If anyone would like to donate pollen and split seeds 50/50, please pm me. I will of course consider any pollen, anything to get the seeds, but the best would be from burkei, lowii, campanulata, ephippiata, ovata, spectabilis, truncata or xTrusmadiensis.
  2. How about the humidity? Will it tolerate 50-60%?
  3. It's a shame I'm living so far away... Maybe I'll find some cheap flights from Poland
  4. I had one bad experience with them. Last year I bought some Drosera ascendens seeds. I sowed them in a terrarium and after some time what did I see? A bunch of Drosera capensis. So I wrote to them. They responded, that the capensis must've gotten there accidentally from somewhere else and that they surely send me the correct seeds, but they just didn't germinate...Yeah right. What are the odds, of rouge capensis seeds getting into the terrarium, from a plant that's standing a few meters away and didn't flower for some time? Not to mention, that it germinated in the EXACT same spot, that I've sown the supposed D. ascendens. Not to mention, that it couldn't be ascendens, as this plant is not yet in widespread cultivation, as i learned after some time. I'm 100% sure, that it's Drosera latifolia and I wrote to them about that, asking them to correct the name. I gave them a link to the article supporting that and ask to show me photos of the flower stalk. I only got an arrogant response saying "I'm selling what I say i do". They didn't even acknowledge a logical reasoning.
  5. Probably depends on a diet. I've tried with Degu droppings, with no effect, but they are eating mostly straw, so they have high fiber and low protein diet. I think, you would have better results with rat droppings, as they eat a lot of proteins. Their diet include meat, so their droppings should be better. In fact, I'll try it and report my observations in a few days.
  6. Does anyone know, why so many pitchers has their tops cut off in this video?
  7. Yes. Unfortunately Carnisana has been closed, as one of it's co-founders passed away. It was a really sad day for whole Polish community of CP growers.
  8. None. All my lamps were made by one guy from Polish CP forum. PM me for contact to him. They are quite easy actually. The whole secret is in the way you pot the plant. The pot needs to be at least 20cm tall, with a 5cm layer of expanded clay aggregate at the bottom and 1:1 or even 2:1 mix of sand:peat, with 2-3 cm of sand topping. All of that because of the fact, that the part of the plant, where the roots and crown connects is VERY susceptible to rot. This way, the top of the pot is dust dry, while the bottom parts are wet and the roots can reach into the expanded clay part, to reach the water freely.
  9. Very nice Mark! But you must have a high level of humidity on that windowsill, I guess?
  10. A bunch of new photos :) Drosera regia And the same plant, kept in a plastic cup and pure peat, back in april. Regia is really not that hard :) Drosera latifolia [Itarare, Sao Paulo, Brazil] - unfortunately, it's difficult to take photos under led lights :/ Heliamphora 'Midoxa' - my first heli, bought a year ago (I've already sold 5 divisions of it!) Heliamphora cilliata Heliamphora hubri [Bonettia Forest] Heliamphora exappendiculata [Amuri Tepui] Heliamphora exappendiculata [ChimantaTepui]
  11. Yes, I thought they are occuring on those three Tepuis. This plant is looking a little bit like parva to me, but parva isn't growing on Avispa as far I know.
  12. Year I know it's the age of the topic, being this case, but I just wanted to confirm if I'm right, or that H. tatei is more variable than I anticipated :)
  13. Hmmm. Those Heliamphora from Avispa, doesn't look like tatei to me. Aren't those H. neblinae?
  14. I can see N. ampullaria on the screen, so it's some kind of carnivorous plants documentary. Picture is taken inside of a vehicle. Might be a plane, but also a bus, or train.
  15. Today I'd like to show you some of my Pinguiculas! Unfortunately, they got a little bit mixed up, so I'm unsure about some of them, so I'm open for sugestions if I got something wrong! :) P. cyclosecta Pinguicula 'Aphrodite' Pinguicula 'El Mirador' Pinguicula laueana Pinguicula emarginata I'm not sure here, but it might be Pinguicula gracilis x emarginata To the left is Pinguicula agnata x jaumavensis, on the right Pinguicula 'Tina' and at the bottom Pinguicula ehlersiae [Santa Catarina] Pinguicula gracilis (?) Pinguicula 'I have no idea what it is' :) Pinguicula ehlersiae [Santa Catarina] Pinguicula 'Tempa' Pinguicula agnata x jaumavensis Dunno. Debbertiana or esseriana? Pinguicula agnata x gypsicola And on the different note, a Dionaea, that I bought as unidentified. I'm guessing Dentate.
