  1. I have some various Drosera seeds germinating that have developed white mold/mildew on the soil surface. Some of the pots have quite significant mold growth and others just a little. I've read that white mold doesn't hurt the seedling (don't even know if that's true but read it on numerous sites) but I can't find any info on if it will hurt the seeds before germination occurs. Can anyone help with this topic?
  2. Hi everybody ! I am just getting ready to "sow" a batch of seeds for cold stratification (sarras, dionaeas, darlings). And i have some D. Gigantea seeds. But i'm not sure about how to sow them. Im not really sure about stratification for gigantea. Can someone clear my view about it ? Thanks Benjam
  3. Is there a particular type of sphagnum that would be good for Sarracenia seeds? For example, would fresh sphagnum be preferable to dried? Does it need to be treated in some way?
  4. I am fortunate to have received some seeds from the Carnivorous Plant Society in the UK. They are "Sarracenia mixed hybrids". What is the best course of action to grow them? From reading around, it seems they would require the sunniest window and rain water. I have the impression that once an appropriate soil mix is found, all that will be needed is rain water. It sounds like the soil mix is important to their success. They are meant to take a very long time to grow, years and years. Is there nothing that can speed their growth? There are about 30 seeds, altogether.
  5. Hi everyone, I want to start sawing some Nepenthes seeds, but I am wondering where to buy some fresh ones. I saw that czplants has many (so many that I doubt they are all fresh). Do you have other suppliers to recommend? Thanks for the info Vincent
  6. How do you guys control mould whilst germinating nepenthes seeds? I ask because i have some bicalcarata, spectabilis, flava and mirabilis seeds in milled sphag moss at the moment for the past 2-3 weeks. I treated the seeds to a hydrogen peroxide spray and did the same with the moss aswell as a blast in the microwave before sowing. i still get tiny amounts of green and white mould, less than the size od a pin head which i have been picking out to stop it spreading too much. does anyone use sprays etc it would be handy to know. thanks.
  7. hi I do not speak English well . Carnivorous plants seeds I bought from China have sent me the seeds away . Is it the seeds of carnivorous plants ? Please , if anyone knows the name of the seeds that I sent the film to China have sent me the seeds away . Is it the seeds of carnivorous plants ? Please , if anyone knows the name of the seeds that I sent the film to tell.
  8. Well it has been fun getting my little Drosera capensis from seed to flower. Planted first set of successful seeds on 2nd October 2013. Germinated on 25th October 2013. First true leaves 5th November 2013. First flower spike seen 28th June 2014. Now between the sowing of the seeds and the flower I had fungal problems, mishap with environmental change and fungus gnats but I have now some very healthy and strong plants. Now thanks to a kind member on the site I have more than enough seeds to fill my house a hundred times over with Drosera. Things I will be trying in the coming months and i
  9. Hi, Today is a festival in my terrarium. Why ? Because, after many acharnements, I have succeeded to do germinate some Codariocalyx motorius seeds, or telegraph-plant. All I can say it's that the germination rate is relatively low since, on ten seeds, four have germinated only. Here you have some pictures of the seedling, with some explanations. 13/05/2014 16/05/2014 24/05/2014 02/06/2014 For those who want to know how I've done : - The seeds have hardened 3 or 4 days in water, kept hot (25°C-30°C). - After that ti
  10. Sorry for the poor wording. This year I have been trying to cross pollinate my red piranha and "Dentate" Venus flytraps and should hopefully have some seeds in the next week. Will the first tiny traps have the tooth shape, colouration etc of the mature traps or will I need to wait 3 years+ to decide which are worth keeping? I am new to growing flytraps from seed and I understand that the seeds will be a genetic mix, so i will get a variety of plants from the seeds. Please correct me if any of this is inaccurate.
  11. Hi everyone, What is your favorite "receipe" to avoid mold and algae to grow faster than your Nepenthes seedlings? I've read about H2O2, including charcoal in the medium, spraying with fungicide, nothing at all, etc. What worked best for you? If you use a fungicide or another kind of substance, would you share the name with us here? Cheers Vincent
  12. I finally got my Darlingtonia seeds to sprout, i stratificated them in the fridge for 4 weeks in some moist spag moss in a ziplock bag the Sewed them on August the 10th. This was my first try so i am a very happy bunny
  13. Hello, this is my first post in this forum, and one of the main reasons I join rather than just stalk all your old answers. I've some experience with carnivorous plants and plants in general, also in bonsai, but I wouldn't go so far as to say that I actually know what I'm doing. And I've none whatsoever with terrariums and artificial lighting. I recently got re-interested in carnivorous plants strongly, and the only way to get plants where I live, with a few exceptions, is by ordering them online. Like living plants have hard regulations and even quarantines times here, I ordered seeds onli
  14. Hey all, Its been over 2 years since my last post and I thought I would ask you again for a little help and advice.. As an update to my original post http://www.cpukforum...wtopic=41961= ALL THE PLANTS ARE THRIVING LIKE MAD. So again i thank you all for your help in getting me up and running and into the CP world. There is one question i have about my current plants though..... The nepenthes have had seed/flower pods on now for nearly 9months... with no sign of opening or flowering or anything... How long do they usually take??? what can I do to either speed them up or call it a day? Ba
  15. As the title suggests where do you guys buy your nep seeds from, i'm looking for a place that sells fresh viable seeds to the UK for future purchases?
  16. Does anyone have Nepenthes Attenboroughii seeds, there is nothing online and i do not know where to find them. Thanks in advance!
  17. Hi :) I have tried searching for info on here that might help me out but to little avail. Perhaps if I have missed something glaringly obvious, somebody may point me in the direction of an existing thread that I can read though, but in the meantime, here goes! I got back into keeping carnivorous plants just over a year ago and now that I have the time and space to do a better job of it, it's gone a little way beyond a few plants kept on a windowsill. I have a cold frame greenhouse that I keep most of my plants in year round, with the exception of some of the more delicate ones I have obtaine
  18. I just thought I'd post a pic of my latest seeds, which I bagged up last night, ready for cold stratification. I put the seeds into folded strips of damp paper towel, then sealed them up in ziploc bags. I've put the ziploc bags inside the original packets just so I know which one's which. They are, Drosera Rotundifolia, Dionaea Muscipula "Akai Ryu" and Pinguicula Grandiflora, thought I'd have a go at growing a Butterwort. Regards, Ian.
