    You clearly have some skill at this! Kudos! Care to describe, for our edification, your techniques and materials? Thanks!

    Thankx for those comments!
    @thelarge: Yes, the nepenthes is grown from seeds. Unlike drosera seeds, Nep seeds are quite easy to introduce in vitro.
    @mass: yes the villosa and graminifolia are even faster than "weedy species", which surprised me a lot. Especially with graminifolia, which under normal conditions in substrate grows like one leaf in a month:-) Here, they went from seed to 15cm plants after few months and one replating!
    @Whimgrinder: my techniques are nothing extraordinary. I like keep things simple, using 20-50%MS, sometimes hormones, .5%NaOCl for sterilisation. Everything depends on what species you work on.

    Wow, you have D. ultramafica. What else are you hiding? Perhaps an undescribed taxon?

    Very nice though! You are an inspration when it comes to Drosera!

    hi klasac, i just realized that i have a question for you:
    how do you grow D. alba via TC and how do you transition it out of TC? doesnt their mandatory summer dormancy cause problems for you?

    @amphirion: in TC plants dont undergo dormancy periods they grow constantly until the medium is exhausted. When deflasked I give them about 1-2 weeks to acclimatize (>90% humidity, fluorescent light , no sun) and then just grow them like any other drosera depending on what the plant's needs are. For plants with dormancy, it is advised to deflask them when they normally grow (e.g. in the winter for summer dormant plants and vice versa).

    I don't know the first thing about tissue culture, but this has inspired me to learn about it. Those plants are AMAZING!
