    A few pics of the plants that germinated February 2014, its more or less their second birthday , growth hasn't been great but a very enjoyable experience , this next pic is of the batch germinated February 2015 they are grown in higher humidity under a fluorescent bulb in a propagator and are doing much better, one has a mature looking pitcher

    Nice, corky. 'Looks like total success to me! What kind of parent plant did the seeds come from? Any particular traits?

    Hi Mark , no particular traits it was an unnamed clone selfed for the 2014 plants , and the plants for 2015 there was the unnamed and possible large clone pollen , I smashed a paint brush around between the two

    Hehe Fred, he's gone bold(only kidding) 2014 is Gabby Hayes selfed offspring , so lets see what happens when they hit puberty, funny ( good memory) think that was around the first time I spoke to" fredg" I didn't have a clue but ain't google a wonderful thing;-) got to be one of the most obscure actor's ever, " Gabby" looked terrible this winter and was next to a stapelia with mealies so had a repot, total repot , roots washed the lot, no bugs found so probably a waste of time, take it ages to recover but something was a miss

    Oddly enough, the looks of male actors doesn't interest me that much
