    Very Sweet!
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    Is 'bau red' ampullaria kind of like 'red moon' ampullaria
    Hi Katherine, I don't think they are the same. The "red moon" amps tends to have a more even colouration and little green speckles. The peristome is also all green or yellow. Mine has got stripes on the peristome.

    I always have to comment on your threads. I cannot grow anything lowland, and simply love seeing what you're growing. You have such a great and expansive collection, and always have excellent photos to share. Thanks, and great looking plants. I don't know how you manage to take care of all of them.

    N. rafflesiana - red form, has open!


    N. x kuchingensis - from BE, crossed with mirabilis echinostroma


    N. sibuyanensis x ventricosa - not as good-looking as before with the heat, lost its speckles


    N. truncata x mira - red colour is maintained with the hot weather


    N. eustachya - from seed


    N. bicalcarata x ampullaria - see the two fangs? So cute!


    N. globusa - didn't see this one hiding inbetween pots until today




    N. ampullaria 'Bau red' - despite the green speckles, this clone is simply great at forming clumps of pitchers
    im drooling over your red lips ampullaria! i wish i can get it. in malaysia its hard to find ='(

    Hi alec,

    It used to be the most difficult until I changed the media from sphagnum moss to burnt earth. Now it grows very well and pitchers on every leaf.

    Hi Cindy,

    Breathtaking plants! Thanks for sharing. Could you share what you mean by "burnt earth"? I'm not sure what that is.

    Thanks in advance,
    Laura

    Hi Laura, burnt earth has been translated for me as just fire kilned clay. Rather similar to how bricks are made or how leca is made. It is just the burnt earth is rather raw because clayey soil is unevenly heated.

    No idea why and how it works but it seems that everyone who has tried it in this region has got excellent success with the difficult species such as N. northiana and N. campanulata. A substitute you may use is Schultz APS/Fuller's earth, a media used for Pinguicula.
