  1. Hi, last year I wasn't very active and so I haven't even posted the pictures from the end of last season. Here are the pictures of my tuberous drosera from April 2017. Starting with Drosera aff. bulbosa Caballo Blanco form Drosera yilgarensis Drosera whittakeri A young Drosera lunata Drosera zonaria from Oakford Drosera lowriei "Gigant" Drosera aff. palladia south coast form Drosera stricticaulis The Lakes Two pictures of Drosera squamosa Drosera rosulata gigant swamp form Drosera rosulata gigant hills form and a Drosera rosulata without location Drosera purpurascens Not the most fascinating picture ever but a plant that is not so often seen in culture: Drosera prostrata. A flowering Drosera obriculata Will be continued. Best regards from Berlin Lutz
  2. Hey all, I have a Drosera Squamosa that all of the sudden decided to hibernate despite all criteria for it's growing cycle being met. It was kept quite cool (about 17 degrees Celsius and below) and wet and was growing beautifully for about 6-7 weeks. Then out of nowhere it died off. I cut its water intake and moved it to my warmest room and just checked the tuber yesterday (one month after apparent death). The tuber looks really healthy! I have no idea why it decided to hibernate for no reason at all. But my real concern is what to do now. The days are getting longer but the weather here is freezing and will remain within the plant's growing season for several months. Do I try to grow the tuber again or let it sleep until next year? Also, if I let it sleep, how should I do so? Collect the tuber or leave it be? How dry do I need to keep it without being too dry? Any advice on how to go about a watering regimen to keep it at the correct dampness for hibernation? This is my first tuberous plant and also my favorite. A detailed answer on this for a novice would be appreciated. Thanks.
  3. Roridula dentata from seed!! Roridula gorgonias on bloom!! Drosera aff. macrantha Nepenthes ventricosa x maxima from seed on bloom!! (very strong, grows all yeat outdoor in Florence)! Happy new year to all!! Cheers, Lorenzo

  5. Hello CPUK. I don't often post here, and largely lurk. But I posted something about my concerns for successfully cultivating my imminently arriving U. mannii to the ICPS forum. It was pointed out to me that those with the proper experience are typically found here. I have included the other post below, but in essence I would like to hear from successful growers of U. mannii about their cultivation techniques. Any advice would be most welcome. Thank you all for your time, whether simple reading this comment or for forthcoming assistance! ----------- Hello all - Let me start out by saying that I like tubers. They are awesome! Chubby little storehouses of life modestly hiding just below the surface. Never boasting of their importance to the rest of the plant. When conditions are good the gaudier parts of the plant unfurl and make grand displays, but when times get rough those flashy parts fade away and life retreats back to the security of the tuber. I grow several tuberous sundews, but given the location of this thread I am sure you know where this is going. I have been trying to better succeed with the tuberous species of bladderworts. I have kept U. endresii for 5 years. It always makes it, but never does anything spectacular. I have been doing great with my U. alpina, but who hasn't. I had a U. quelchii for one season, a small tuber that was gifted in a trade and only ever put up one tiny leaf before it blinked out - though I'd like to try it again someday. On to my current concern. I have just ordered U. mannii. This may have been foolish. I am both excited and nervous about successfully cultivating this difficult species. I would love to hear from someone who has successfully grown this species, but I'd also like any information people have on its successful cultivation. I'd like to know temperature regimes, both diurnal and seasonal (hopefully more than just "keep it cool", I misinterpreted that with my Drosera schizandra and I think I killed it with cold temps), watering needs including seasonal changes, humidity requirements, and critically, substrate preferences. Right now, I am planning on growing it in a small net pot with live sphagnum moss either sitting in a small tray of water or misting it well daily, and keeping the temperature around 15-22C. Does this sound like a good plan to those with experience in highland utrics?
