  1. hello all, i put together a collage of various petiolaris traps put side by side so people can see the differences between each. starting from the left, broomensis, darwinensis, derbyensis, diliatatopetiolaris, falconeri, fulva, kenneallyi, lanata, ordensis, and paradoxa. thanks for taking a look!
  2. two plants, same species, the one on the left is currently emerging out of dormancy, and the one on the right is starting to enter it... truth be told, i thought i almost lost the one waking up; it's dormancy pattern is different from the other petiolaris in my collection- namely, the plant just aborts the growth point altogether, and the remaining leaves slowly die off, one by one....

  4. Trap diversity and evolution in the family Droseraceae Simon Poppinga, Siegfried R.H. Hartmeyer, Tom Masselter, Irmgard Hartmeyer and Thomas Speck A new review has been published in PBS (Plant Signaling & Behavior) and is now online (open access, link below). Recent investigations revealed how the snap-traps of Aldrovanda vesiculosa (waterwheel plant) and Dionaea muscipula (Venus’ flytrap) work mechanically and how these apparently similar devices differ as to their functional morphology and shutting mechanics. Recently, it was also shown that there exists a higher diversity of different tentacle types and trap configurations in Drosera than previously known which presumably reflect adaptations to different prey spectra. Based on these recent findings, we finally comment on possible ways for intrafamiliar trap evolution. http://www.landesbio.../article/24685/
  5. Dear all, as I so far only came across D. (paleacea ssp.) leioblastus plants which did not fit to the description in Lowrie's second book, I am quite happy to report that I got some gemmae last year which developed into plants just like in the description The probably most prominent attribute is the hairy inflorescence. All the plants I obtained with this name before were more or less glabrous and are either D. paleacea or D. oreopodion. The stipule bud also fits nicely to Allen's drawing. The same plant from the other side: Another plant with a branched inflorescence: The probably most similar species is D. (paleacea ssp.) trichocaulis which also has a very hairy inflorescence. But in D. trichocaulis the sepals are also covered with hairs, whereas those in D. leioblastus are more or less glabrous. The glabrous sepals are already visible in the second picture above, but here is a macro shot: In contrast, D. paleacea (ssp. paleacea) produces a more or less glabrous flower stalk. My D. trichocaulis are not that advanced yet, so their pictures will follow later. Please correct me if I got something wrong. Cheers Dieter
  6. I was wondering whether I have anything to gain by dividing my Aliciae up? it's looking a litle clumped as it is, would it be happier as single rosettes? it was re-potted about a fortnight ago and I'm kicking myself for not doing it then but it's had something of a growth spurt since and what was a pot that would have been fine for a plant not doing a great deal is now looking a bit full. top view side view, (I know it says dionea on the pot, it was just the first one that came to hand. maybe I should have used a bigger one ) While I'm here, is thre any way to get it to colour up a little? I'd quite like to see it a little redder though I'm sure the lack of sunshine outsed has had a large hand in that.
  7. Irmgard and I are happy to report, that the upload of excerpts from our movie (and DVD) "On CP-Tour with Stewart McPherson" (2010) is now completed on YouTube. Our new edited play list (Link below, then click on "On CP-Tour ...") makes it possible to enjoy Stew's amazing Tepui-adventures complete and according to the original film (67 minutes). It provides all Heliamphora species which have been described until 2010, thrilling helicopter flights over unique landscapes and much more. Take the time to experience some really exciting adventures in an amazing and unique ambiance.

  9. Hi all, I am happy to announce that I now posted a website about tuberous drosera: The text section is (more or less) complete but currently there are only two species available in the photo gallerie. I will add more during the next few days (+ weeks and months). Any kind of feedback is welcome! Cheers Dieter
  10. Good morning! Every winter I experience the same with Drosera filiformis "red" (or "all red" - not sure what´s the official name now)! When the plants are older than 1.5 years they use to rot in winter! Note: Younger plants are not affected by rotting in exactly the same conditions! I try to keep the plants on the balcony as long as possible but of course don´t expose them to frost. Sure, the light is not the best at this season outside. But as it´s relatively cold anyway the plants use to build their resting bud and stop growing. Since the new coldness has appeared in the beginning of January the plants are kept permanently indoors in an unheated room below grow lights {my artificial supernova (a 250 W metal halide lamp)}. The first plants have started to rot already on the balcony. Others looked fine but have finally rot after putting them indoors, too! The plants are standing among my Lithops and currently the metal halide lamp is 1.4 m away from them. This is because to slowly adapt the Lithops to the more intense light (they spent their time on the balcony before as well!). I will decrease the distance to the lamp to 1 m in a few days. For the Drosera the lamp is a little too far away, okay, I understand this. Last year in winter I lived in my old flat which didn´t have a balcony. The plants were kept below a large South-West facing roof window with no additional light. Fairly different conditions than now. However I experienced the same with plants older than 1.5 years. They just rot while the seedlings next to them were still fine! I wonder if this is perhaps a natural behaviour of D. filiformis "red". I think that Amar has lost his old plants the same way. Amar? Is there anyone else with the same experience? Temperatures on the balcony ranged between 1 and 10°C while the plants have been kept outside. In my unheated sleeping room it is much warmer: ~15°C at daytime and ~10°C in the night. The plants have started to grow new leaves again. 4 have rot nonetheless. And now I have only three survivors which I´ve transplanted yesterday evening. I keep the soil only moist, not wet for the whole dark season. Finally: Of formerly 10 plants I have only 3 left at the moment. Not sure if they´ll survive at all. AND: I´ve NEVER had D. filiformis "red" older than barely two years! You cannot say the plants below the roof window would have had "dormancy conditions". Perhaps the key is to keep them growing below strong artificial light in winter? Your opinions and experiences desired! Thank you! Andreas PS: Looks like I have to sow seeds of D. filiformis "red" again.... PPS: Interesting: Smilies are not shown between square brackets! [ ]
  11. Dear all, For those who are interested, I've uploaded images from the November-December expedition to Palawan and Borneo. Highlights include a return visit to Thumb Peak, in the Iwahig Prison & Penal Colony, as well as Mount Victoria and an excursion to see Nepenthes bicalcarata in a lowland peat swamp. Once again, some new orchid taxa were identified, one a saprophyte and the other a remarkable epiphyte. Featured plants include (among others): Nepenthes deaniana Nepenthes philippinensis Nepenthes attenboroughii Nepenthes reinwardtiana Nepenthes fusca Nepenthes macrovulgaris Nepenthes gracilis Nepenthes mirabilis Nepenthes stenophylla Nepenthes burbidgeae Nepenthes rajah Nepenthes villosa (Tambuyukon form) Drosera ultramafica You can view the entire album on Facebook. Please let me know should you encounter any problems viewing the album, or if you have any questions about the trip or plants encountered. Happy Christmas! Alastair.
  12. Hi there! My name is Cleber and I´m from Brazil! My interests are Drosera species and I´m starting an in vitro collection of them, but I still don´t have many species. I felt in love with Drosera and I can´t let them go. lol It is nice meeting You all. And don´t forget to come to olimpic games in 2014 and world cup in 2016! Here is a nice place to visit. Hugs Cleber
  13. Hi all, the area around the town of Darling has some very interested places if you are into plants in general. After visiting Peter Hewitt's Nursery in the morning we started to drive towards Clanwilliam. On this way we went to three different locations in the Darling area. The first stop was at a location where we know, that there must be some plants of a cream/yellow flowered Drosera zeyheri. We have been there already in 2009, but did not find the plants. The first plants we found there were those: A few mintes later we could find the first Drosera trinervia as we as some deep red plants of Drosera cistiflora. This time we even found the Drosera zeyheri! The plants are growing scattered around the ground. Saddly they have already stopped flowering, so we had no chance to see the flowers. You can see pictures of the flowers from a 2006 Tour from Ferando Rivadavia here:
  14. Hi, directly after arriving in Cape Town we wanted to do a short afternoon walk and decided to go to the Signal Hill with the close by Lion's Head. Hallo, There were no clouds at all, so we could enjoy spectacular views down to Cape Town and the Table Mountains. The temperature were around 30°C, a really nice day! You will have to pass some ladders to reach the top. Besides many interesting plants, you can also find some nice animals there. At the point that we needed to go back (it was already late afternoon) we found the first carnivorous plants of our tour! It was Drosera trinervia, most likely the most widespread species of the Western Cape: The way back was a bit adventurous. We had no problem to return from the Lion's Head, but we could not find a good way to walk down from Signal Hill to Sea Point, so we decided to go straight down (which is for sure not the best option for some parts of the Signal Hill). We finally arrived in Sea Point only to find out, that we had no idea where exactly we were, so we asked somebody to call a Taxi for us to get back to our hotel. We arrived there at 19pm. Luckily the lady at the hotel was kind enough to take our rental car, which was arranged for 18pm that day. We were totally tired that evening (a 15hrs flight + 5hrs walk), so we went to eat something and went sleeping soon after. regards, Christian
  15. Hello everybody, How soon after collecting my own Drosera seeds should I sow them..? Would a spell in the fridge help with germination at all..? Or should I store them till next spring?, if so, how is best to store them.? The seeds I have collected (From my own plants) are Drosera rotundifolia, Drosera intermedia, Drosera anglica and Drosera Filliformis. Sorry about all the questions, this is the first time I've collected seed.! Cheers.
  16. Well done to Andy "Loakesy" for his winning entries in the allotment show, especially winning the cup. I also had bit of success in our Horticulture Society show earlier in the month. No cup for me unfortunately (only cash prizes of £1.50 & £1.20 ) but it was great to get the appreciation from non-CP'ers. I normally enter runner beans, courgettes and marrows but hadn't been able to grow any vegetables this year so, like Andy, I had to come up with an alternative. I had one or two interested enquiries about the plants and this seems like a great way to promote CPs to a wider audience. (Click photos to enlarge) 1st prize 2nd prize both together with other entries (Apologies for the quality of the D capensis photo, it was too dark in the village hall without flash and with it there was too much reflection from the "prize label") cheers Gaz
  17. Hello, it seems I have caught a lucky moment to be able to read and post here again. To be honest I can hardly believe my luck! I´ve had very bad problems to load CPUK into my browser at all (different browsers in fact). Usually I get the error messages "server not found", "server does not respond", "server time out". It has nothing to do with the board software and Andy did everything possible to help me. The problems can return. So, if you wonder where I am, the above described problem is guilty. *sigh* Okay, let´s go to the more comfortable things in life. :-) Oh, btw is Daniel O. perhaps anywhere around? He should see this! I show you Drosera tomentosa (var. tomentosa - if this is still a valid taxon) which develops its famous furry flower scape. This time everything works perfect, Dani! Love these white hairs! <3 The pics are taken with my stepfather´s new digital camera, a Panasonic Lumix TZ 31. I´ve had it in my hands for only an hour... ;-) Still need some time to play with it! Hope, you like the plant as much as I do. Thanks again, Dani! Bye bye Andreas
