I would love to have a seed or plant of this carnivorous species . since I am from southern california i believe it is legal since thats where they have been introduced . o if any body has a plant or seed please tell me and I'll see what plants i have for trade .
I'm wondering, since roridula and several other "quasi carnivores" don't actually secrete any enzymes but just capture the insects. If I have a previously unmentioned quasi carnivore.
I have a pair of Uncarina peltata seedlings that seem remarkably adept at catching gnats. There's not a lot of data on this species around but its a member of the sesame seed family I believe. I have a pair of another Uncarina species but I just got them bare-root and they haven't put out enough leaves to see if they can trap bugs too. The U. peltata leaves feel very much like a butterwort's leaves but hairer. They've got lots of oily hairs all over the plants though.
I have got a ibicella that had just germinated from seeds, I call tell you seed germination is quite difficult. And it seems to me that it is the soil temperature and the atmospheric temperature that seems to trigger the germination. It is best to sow them in one-two weeks before the spring (lots of lights and keep soil moist) and germination should start in about 2-3 weeks to a month.
Oh, and the whole plants have sticky glands all over.
I just got some ibecella lutea SEEDS not pods , i need info on when , how , where , and size .i never heard of uncarina , but it looks alot like a devils claw with a big bulb , i'd like to know more and i'm still trying to figure out the name of that carnivorou seed .
