some of you might remember my request for tips on growing N. ovata back in September. Following the advices of Jeff, Tony and Rob I did uproot the plant and found the reason for the bad growth. This plant is a cutting with a stem about 4cm long. The plant had discarded its old root...
I'm growing N. pilosa for about half a year only,so I do have very limited experience. Jeff, Tony, Rob or one of the other experts might help you better.
My N. pilosa clone seems to like highland conditions better than intermediate conditions. Now in fall and winter night temps go down to...
N. benstonei can be found in the photo gallery of Phill Mann's site:
Pictures of all these plants can be found in Charles Clarke's two books. N. x pyriformis is according to Clarke a synonym for N. inermis x N. talangensis...
lots of information concerning cultivation can be found on Martin's site (sadly only in german language - you might try an automatic translator):
Tim, just guessing, but I don't expect that many drugs in the pitcher fluid. When insects have managed to find their way into it, they are doomed even without drugs. Only in the nectar drugs would be useful for catching insects. Well, I think I should look this up in literature, as I might...
Hmm, I did try this pot because the Sphagnum and also the runners might grow easily through the holes and are not restricted to the pot. I don't know if it is an advantage but the plant did what I expected and grew through these holes into the tray. The tray is normally filled up to the rim, not...
not all of you might be reading our German CP-forum regularly and I don't think Andreas Wistuba will post it here. Have a look at the first colour photo of N. tenuis:
P.S.: I hope the link works, if not go through...
I'm not that good in describing plants, so here is a photo of my biggest one:
The picture is not the best one but I do think you'll get an idea of the leaf shapes. The pot size is 11cm btw.
the seeds of these two plants were collected back in 1994 on Mt. Kinabalu but not from the seller I got it from. Sadly the TC lab multiplying these plants did mix N. lowii also from the same batch of seeds collected and the "N. villosa" two years ago.
I've seen the same clone about six...
Hi, leaf shape of Ut. humboldtii may vary greatly even on the same plant. My clone does produce so different leaf shapes I wouldn't even guess they are the same species. Humidity does not seem to be a need for them at all. I do grow mine on a windowsill above the heater. Stolens do develop best...
I'll forward your question, Rob. Maybe I can get some infos on possible species this one could be.
Of course I did buy two plants back in may which should be identical - what I still do strongly doubt. The second one looks more like N. lowii to me:
thanks for the good guesses! Thes species are:
A: N. rajah
B: N. bellii
C: propably N. lowii - I bought this one as N. villosa, but the TC-lab of the seller had made an error and they were not able to tell ant more what they delivered. But also for a N. lowii this plant is horrible slow...
many thanks for your help!
As bringing up the question of deleting this thread I want to comment on this, because I made very bad experience with similar situations (being a mod. in the German CP-forum). Not all who do read these threads are long enough involved in this business to...
