    harvested the rest of the seeds today. I got one nice pod full of capensisXnidiformis and that was about it.. the capensisXmadagascariensis pods were bunk. more updates in a few weeks when i get some sprouts!

    well i sowed the seeds a few weeks ago. I got several sprouts from the nidiformisXcapensis cross and the rest have yet to do anything.. however, my pots had a burst of algae growth that pretty much consumed all of the sprouts i DID get.. i tried transferring them to fresh soil but so far only have one left that is barely hanging on. The outlook is grim

    I ordered more madagascar seeds and a live plant in order to increase my chances of getting a flower on one at the right time.

    also took root and stem cuttings from my existing ones. I kinda had to because i set the pot outside recently and the durn snails ate off the growth points

    Man that's a bummer! Mollusks bite big time. I found a baby snail recently happily munching on the base of a VFT that was an indoor plant that had been recently repotted. It just kinda hatched outta nowhere.
    For sure keep up the efforts though. Sundew crosses seem like they have very cool potential. I couldn't agree more with NewspaperFort: capensis x's seem much cooler to me than plain ol' capensis. I also have a couple and they shine in my collection. They are very easy to propagate through leaf cuttings in alot of cases, and therefore easy to maintain enough in a collection and enough to spread around to friends and admirers of these little oddities.

    Hybrids! Oh, how we love hybrids! There are so many different ones everyone knows: Heliamphora heterodoxa x minor and vice versa, Nepenthes x ventrata, etc., etc., etc.! Who knows what will come out of them?
