    Are those cultivars that you made?

    Yeah.... I'm an amp enthusiast..... I just wish that the rarer ampullaria varieties were easier to find. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Rob, those are magnificent plants you have there. It must have taken a long time to comb through all of those seedlings and find these jewels. I do hope that you manage to send these plants out in the next few years, they would really be a centerpiece of any collection. You must be very proud.

    To answer your question Nathaniel, they aren't really cultivars that I made. What I did was sow large numbers of seeds that were harvested from a normal speckled N. ampullaria. (We have done this with quite a few other species too). Some of the seeds are sown in sterile culture but the vast bulk of them are sown in trays in a ramshackle old lowland nursery (the first we built here in '97):



    The seeds germinate and compete with each other. They get one shot of Osmacote fertilizer in their lives and then that's it. I hardly ever go in there, once a month perhaps. It's like wading through a jungle and sometimes some gems appear. These gems are then taken away to a more organized nursery to begin a new life.

    I guess I ought to register these particular N. ampullaria as cultivars with the ICPS though.

    By the way, if anyone would like to come over and sort this nursery out they would be very welcome [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] I have to say though that it's a bit "snakey". The odd cobra and venomous viper have been known [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    Rob,

    Man oh man, that is cruel. Those of us who live in less than hospitable environments have to jump through hoops to get our plants to grow at all, much less well and you just sow some seeds and basically ignore them and get a building full of beautiful healthy looking plants.

    Ok - I am not afraid of snakes, been bit alot, if I come wade through the greenhouse do I get to keep what I find?

    And you should register your plants, just to make sure we all call them by the same name in the future.

    Cheers,

    I'm with pthiel. I'll come down when during my spring brake, or during the summer and work, for a payment of nepenthes seedlings [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . You know I'm joking [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . Wouldn't have room for them anyway [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] .

    Hey Rob,

    I don't much mind snakes and I have had my run ins with the poisonous guys here in the States so I'll be more than happy to come clean your shack out. Expect me on Tuesday night coming in on Air WishfulThinking, Flight 400. I'll light myself on fire at the bagage claim so you can find me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
