  1. In mid of August we made a trip to the Maggia valley close to Ascona. As we could not decide where to stop, we drove to the end of the valley and arrived at an artificial lake at about 1500m a.s.l..There we found the road continuing a lot further. After some more driving we arrived at a beautiful mountain lake at 2050 m a.s.l.. Some divers there told us, that this small lake is up to 40 m deep. On the south facing shore, we found some Pinguicula growing between the grass. As I am not an Pinguicula expert, I would be happy if someone could ID them. Beside the Pinguicula there
  2. Hello everyone, this is my first post ^^ Does anyone know when my D. Binata var. Dichotoma will grow traps, they are about 1 month old or so, maybe a bit older, and only the stems seem to be growing. Sorry if this seems stupid but i'm a beginner xD ( and they could do with spacing out :O :/ ) Thanks
  3. here are some of the more photogenic petiolaris in my collection. broomensis by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr caduca by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr ordensis by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr fulva by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr dilatatopetiolaris by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr lanata by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr falconeri by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr derbyensis by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr thanks for taking a look, here's a macro photo of lanata. hope you enjoyed! _MG_6829 by mr.phamtastic, on Flickr
  4. There is a lot about light and heat for are beloved plants but how much is too much. As some will know we are in something of good weather for the UK but my garden is hitting 27oC and light levels are through the roof. It is at a point that I have had to shade some of my more shade loving seedlings, Digitalis and such. I have my one seedling sunning in the garden and a set of seed and some look like they may be starting to germinate (when viewed at 400X magnification) all covered to stop them drying out but am I at risk of cooking them?
  5. 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!
  6. 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....

  8. 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
  9. 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 probabl
  10. 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 li
  11. 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. http://www.youtu

  13. 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
  14. 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 Jan
  15. 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 Nepen
  16. 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
  17. 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 pl
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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. perh
