And some winter guests

Drosera erythrorhiza ssp. squamosa

gallery_3714_93_223062.jpg

Drosera macrantha ssp. planchonii

gallery_3714_93_156948.jpg

with some strange tentacles on the stem

gallery_3714_93_26319.jpg

This one was labelled as Drosera erythrorhiza ssp. squamosa, but is more likely a Drosera tubaestylis, or what do you mean??

Hi,

thanks for all the compliments! The temperatures during summer stay allways below 30°C and drop to at least 20°C at night. These values are for really hot summer temperatures. I will use my compression refrigeration machine (from an old fridge) next summer, which I also used for my old terrarium (see below), to drop the temperatures on hot summer days.

These Utricularia need a high humidity above 60%. I give them a lot of light about 35'000 lumen/m^2. The tuberous Drosera need a lot of light!

Here some actual pictures I like...

Sweet!!!

How do you manage to grow Villosa in there?

Amazing looking plants, especially the Helimaphoras and the Nepenthes, you're very lucky and talented!

Hi,

my terrarium is in the basement where it stays cool. The light heats it up during day and at night it cools down at room temperature. Like this I don't get over 30 °C during the day. On hot summer days the temperatures just drops to 20°C. I will install my old "fridge cooler" next spring to give them even better conditions - we will see...

For Heliamphora, Nepenthes villosa and espacially Nepenthes lamii (previously N. spec. Doorman's Top1) it is most important that they get a good air movement, a lot of light and not over 30°C. It is not necessary to provide allways a 10°C drop in temperature at night (except for Nepenthes lamii!!).

Utricularia jamesoniana is mounted on a piece of bark with some peat and sand. If I would grow it in a pot, I would use a mix of peat, perlite, sand and some small pine bark pieces. But if yours is growing fine it seems to work well for you in this substrat.

Mine would probably grow better in a pot, because it drys out quickly and some stolons don't survive - like this it stays always at the same place...

Perhaps I make a cutting for smal pot! ;-)

Kind regards

Marc
