  1. Another one of the sites I visited on my wanderings this year. This site is about 3 kms north east of my place (as the crow flies) and is part of the catchment (upstream) of the creek on my place. The main interest here is Utricularia kimberleyensis as it's the only place I've found it locally. In a lot of surface flow of water over fine sand but also a lot of exposed lateritic rock. Slope was very slight but water depth was a good 50mm with good movement. Towards the end of the wet season as the surface water disappeared so too did the U. kimberleyensis. In much the same environment is utricularia limosa, although in water a bit shallower. Never saw it in the absence of surface water. A lot of Utricularia leptoplectra, again mostly standing in the stream of water but some just out of it. An insect (probably) had eaten through the stalk of some flowers hence the photo of the reverse (yellow) side. As everywhere, there's Utricularia nivea. Utricularia chrysantha is a late starter coming up in drier spots or where water levels have dropped. Colours are closer to those at my place rather than the pure yellow which seems most common elsewhere. Not many Drosera, most of those D. fulva. Drosera dilitatopetiolaris And only one Drosera aquatica. I suspect there's too much surface water flow.

    Sickly Drosera

    Like the prodigal son I return the the place it all started to throw myself on the wisdom of my betters. My D. capensis are looking very sorry for themselves, I have tried flushing the media through with clean water, I have changed the media, I have moved some to other brighter locations but no matter what I do all new growth comes up looking... odd (see images) even in the growth stage you can see it is going to come up odd and then I get this pointed formation that browns and dies back. I have in the same pots a few that are not showing this odd formation. I let them grow for a bit as I know they can do strange things but all new growth for about 5 months has been like this. So does anyone know the reason behind this.

    Drosera filiformis red or not?

    Hi everyone. I have some question about my drosera filiformis red seedlings. I bought seeds of this drosera as seeds of Drosera Filiformis Red. At first they were very red, but then it became just green with red tentacles. I began to doubt that I actually have that plant and i think that they are simple Drosera filiformis with dormancy period. Now they are looking like this. I think they started forming a hibernacula. What do you think about this?

    hi from italy!

    hi everyone from northern italy! i'm cultivating carnivorous plants from about 10 years,i've started with a small dionaea and a sarracenia from a garden centre,and now my collection is expanding. a lot! i've recently built a small greenhouse for the plants,so they can survive my cold winter here.. i'm currently experimenting a peat free mix in a lot of my plants,and i hope to going peat free with all my plants in the future. happy to join the best CP community in the world! cheers- fabio.
  8. hi everyone! there is some photos taken at my small CP collection. i hope you like it!

    HELP! Drooping Capensis with no dew!

    I need help! I've had my Drosera Capensis for nearly two weeks now and after the first week it started to look like this. It is sitting in a south facing window getting a fair amount of direct sunlight each day. I am using de ionised water which it sits in most of the time as i let the dish dry up before watering it again. I am hoping that I can revive it back to its strong pointy leaves like it had the day I bought it. Thanks!
  10. Have been reading up recently on colchicine/oryzalin and their use in plant breeding (specifically in Drosera hybrids) to produce fertile (otherwise infertile) hybrids by chromosome doubling. Where (if at all) can these chemicals be acquired safely and legally? I'm aware oryzalin is a component in some herbicides but am unable to source any from the UK. Thanks, Rob.
  11. My first post as a member, so bear with me Bought the pictured sundews from triffidnurseries.co.uk labelled as D. spatulata, however the left-hand plant has a slightly different leaf shape/colouring than the rest of the plants. Also, the flower scape is significantly taller than the rest of the other plants. Just a natural variation within the species, or is it possible another plant seeded itself alongside the spatulata?
  12. Hello, has anyone of you guys ever ordered from this website http://www.droseragemmae.com/? I see it's located in the US, so I was wondering whether it's be a deal buying something from them or a risk of receiving half-dead stuff. Thanks!
  13. Hi all, Just adding some photos and updating everyone on how the displays doing, Pitchers have come up well, and most of the plants are now in full growth. However, I am having some issues with green fly on my Drosera and Dionaea. I'll hopefully get this sorted before September. I have also nearly completed my outdoor Carnivorous plant display (I know I'm spoilt) just need to finish getting materials then plants can start going in. Any comments are appreciated, but remember this display is still young and hopefully will continue to get better, any questions feel free to ask. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/f67ojhpjb6ghrfr/AAA6fgcWVnxo7ZtrUnteuyUka?dl=0 Enjoy :)
  14. Hey everyone! On December 11th (last month), I placed two leaves each of Droseras flexicaulis and cistiflora "Purple Flower" into water filled vials and left them unattended until yesterday. When I checked them, I was pleased to discover that erupting from the center of each leaf from both species were long filaments, white at the base and approaching green at the growing end. In D. cistiflora they measure around 1.5 and .5 centimeters, and in D. flexicaulis they measure .7 and .25 cm. I am wondering what other cues I will need to observe before I can safely introduce these cuttings into new media, and what that new media should preferably be. I am considering changing the water and waiting another month before introducing the plants into a peat or sphagnum slurry. Hardening off these species is important to me, as both of them are exceedingly expensive in the US, and the question at issue here is primarily what reliable processes are to securely decant the pullings into media. Of particular concern is D. cistiflora, which will need to develop a taproot in order to survive its dry dormancy. Does anyone have any success with water pullings from this particular species? Or flexicaulis, for that matter? Thank you very much, Carson

  19. It's been a while since I last posted here! The last couple of years has been very busy with university, fieldwork, and travelling around various parts of Europe, with much time spent away from home. While I found time to tend to and tidy the hardy plants in the greenhouse from time to time, as a result my indoor collection, which I was very proud of, has shrunk considerably due to neglect and pests. I am looking to build it up again to some extent, especially with Drosera and Utricularia (I can't believe I lost my prized flowering specimens of U. quelchii and praetermissa - there was some sort of isopod arthropod in the moss which ate at the stolons and the damage was done before I noticed! ) However, the run of nice weather recently has left things looking very nice in the greenhouse! Plenty of growth on the sarras! This is my tallest Sarra *so far* this year - but it may be beaten by an x alava. It's S. flava rugellii MK F143 'Tall clone'. Great robust pitcher, 96 cm tall, with a huge lid and lovely throat! Gorgeous tall flava ornatas This promising-looking rubricorpora seedling has been lurking unnoticed in a corner for goodness know show long until I found it and was delighted with its colour! Orange flowers of Brook's Hybrid: One of my favourites, MK H26 - flava x alata, just opened. This should go deep crimson all over later in the season. I love the small sweet red flowers of rubras en masse - in front is jonesii, left is wherryi yellow flower, back is alabamensis And wherryi 'Chatom Giant': Leucos are starting to pop open too: My first ever Darlingtonia flowers! they're lovely, and remind me of Fritillary lilies. The whole Darly plant - ridiculous numbers of stolons being produced, not that I'm complaining! More to come!!
  20. Attracted by what I thought might be a picture of a Utricularia asplundii on BBC's news site today I clicked the link to an item about the world's tally of plant. Although there was no mention of any Utrics they did mention and show a photo of a "new species" of Droser...D magnifica....here's the link
  21. Hello everyone, I have a potentially inexperienced question to ask. Why do I never see Drosera Slackii Seed? Have i missed something huge? For example... the fact that they are sterile similiar to drosera hybrida? Or are they just difficult to get to go to seed? Thanks in advance

    Drosera Adelae - Weed like behavior

    Good evening all, its been a while since I've made a post but I'm just curious if others have this.... well its becomming a problem I purchased a single, small drosera adelae in September last year a small specimin for the princely sum of £3, it grew well so I thought I'd divide it in case the worst happened... well now its taken over. They seem to send runner's of sorts that pop up in any location in its pot, and have even started to migrate out of the pot and into the small well of water in the propagator underneath. Ironically I didn't think I'd do too well with it as it requires warmer conditions generally but seems to have not been bothered by my cold bedroom windowsill. It does get a fair amount of light though. Below are some pictures, they're far bigger now, and spreading like mad, I might have to become ruthless, but I do like it as a sundew as its extremely sticky and quite appealing. It also seems to flower regularly as well despite us only just coming out of the darker months. Does anyone else have experience with growing these? Am I lucky/unlucky in the sense that its growing like mad and I might have to take a similiar stance to it as I do with my capensis.... removing them regularly when they're not wanted? I did see a simple but seemed effective setup of containing it to a single larger pot and letting it do its thing within its own boundaries, but I do dislike limiting plants when I like them.... problem is I could end up with a bedroom full of adelae's
  23. Just a quick 2 minute tour of my glasshouse showing some Drosera, Saracenia, Drosophyllym and Venus fly traps Im growing In New Zealand https://youtu.be/6U3G9-eD9fM Please subscribe I will make new cp videos and have quite a few already on my youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLY0gh6fEWwj9I2gtntdSl4ld4YxSRhpP4

    Drosera brevifolia

    Finaly, I managed to get my brevifolia flowers on camera. Sorry for the poor quality. I grow them usually outside, in a small container covered by ceran wrap, in LFS, but with temperatures going down to 8c, I moved them under 6xT5
  25. Hi everyone, I'm struggling with my D. paradoxa: I want to multiply this lovely plant, but it doesn't work! I tried leaf cuttings and even flower stem cuttings, in sphagnum, in water. Nothing... Did anybody succeeded with this particular species and has a trick to share? Cheers Vincent
