Re: what's happening to my pilosa??

soonsuseong,

The two species, pilosa and chaniana are different. Try and see if you can get a positive ID so that you can grow your plant better.

Re: Some Pics Of Cephs To Share

nickjamie,

If the whole rhizome rots, the plant is gone. But if only part of it rots, that part can be cut off and the rest of the rhizome saved.

However, if your plant is from tissue culture...

Re: Some Pics Of Cephs To Share

TS,

Temperature does affect pitcher size but it is only one of the factors.

It also depends on what you want to achieve.

Like I told another grower yesterday, if my Cephs at the balcony...

Re: Some Pics Of Cephs To Share

Aaron,
It depends on how your media is like. Try not to keep it too wet because the remaining rhizome tends to rot off soon after the application of insecticide.

TS,
The plants (1-3) are under...

Hi Shawn,

Re: Byblis flowering

Powersensor,

The seeds are better if they are collected only when/after the fruit splits. It seems that if they are collected too soon, not as many are viable. But because the process may cause...

Re: Drosera leaf cuttings propogation

Casey, petiolaris complex plants propagate better if you tear the whole plant into clumps i.e. a bunch of several leaves attached together as opposed to individual leaves.

What worked very well...

Re: Byblis plantlets vanished?

The media can be kept soppy wet as long as there is lower humidity around the plant and bright light. In the wild, Byblis grows in dry, desert-like conditions.

Re: Drosera leaf cuttings propogation

Casey,

You'll have much better results tearing one paradoxa plant into many larger clumps of leaves instead of pulling off individual ones.

Re: Campanulata flowering soon.....

Unless your plant is more than 6" across, I wouldn't suggest you allow it to flower fully to collect pollen (if male) or to pollinate (if female).

You can allow the flower stalk to unfurl and see...

Re: Byblis plantlets vanished?

Byblis seedlings are very prone to fungus attack. Giving them direct sunlight (apparently the UV kills the fungus) and better ventilation helps.
