Nepenthes & Triphyophyllum At the beginning of the 2022 season, we first take a look at our pitcher plants that have well survived the winter in our greenhouse. Especially the cross Nepenthes veitchii x edwardsiana - unfortunately not for sale - is very popular with our audience, but also her mummy, N. veitchii as well as N. ventricosa "Porcelain" do not need to hide. We will show some more species and hybrids, and then come to an attraction that, although still very small, joined our collection last summer: The largest carnivorous plant in the world Triphyophyllum peltatum. This liana can grow over 70 m long and we show photographs of its flowers and flyable seeds in the Würzburg Botanical Garden. For the unique photos, excerpts from our film "Triphyophyllum peltatum", we thank Dr. Heiko Rischer, Dr. Jan Schlauer and Stewart McPherson. Enjoy! Finally, we would like to mention the World Carnivorous Plant Day 2022 of the International Carnivorous Society ICPS on May 4. The organizers and contributors have put a lot of effort into presenting exciting lectures and films on the internet during this day. We were also invited to produce a movie for it, so we turned our living room into a "green hell". More is not revealed, everything else on the internet on May 4 at the ICPS (www.carnivorousplants.org).
NEPENTHES 4 CUTTINGS This time we are looking in our greenhouse for pitcher plants (Nepenthes), for which because of their attractive pitchers we often get requests for cuttings from you. First of all, there is Nepenthes rafflesiana var. alata, which is much sought after because of the striking frills on its lower pitchers, and which also forms quite large upper pitchers. Similarly often asked for is N. ventricosa "Porcelain", which as the name suggests is popular because of its porcelain look lower pitchers. Before we take a look at our most popular hybrid N. veitchii x edwardsiana, we will show you the development of the seed pods of our N. bicalcarata female, of which at least a few are starting to swell after the pollination end of December. Unfortunately, no more cuttings can be pre-ordered at the moment, the demand was simply too great. Enjoy!
